Located in Boulogne Billancourt, the Albert Kahn gardens show the different aspects of the art of gardening in the early 20th century.
Albert Kahn, a wealthy banker (1860-1940) dedicated his fortune to various foundations which encouraged respect and peaceful relations among different peoples and nations. He was fascinated by foreign cultures.
Today, in his garden at Boulogne, you can stroll through the four-hectare horticultural models that originate from various countries: a Japanese section, a formal French garden, an English garden, a Blue Atlas cedar and Colorado spruce forest and lastly, a reproduction of the Vosges Mountains.
These gardens, painstakingly restored and maintained in the spirit of their creator, not only show different aspects of gardening in the early 20th century, but also demonstrate Kahn’s ideal of cultural diversity.
Let our guide show you one of the less well known sights in the center of Paris: the magical world of Albert Kahn.
