Information about the 6th Arrondissement of Paris
The 6th arrondissement of Paris is one of the 20 arrondissements (administrative districts) of the capital city of France. The Hotel de Chimay can be found here.
Situated on the left bank of the River Seine, it is one of the central arrondissements of the capital and is notable for including the district of Saint Germain des Pres – dominated by its Abbey founded in the 6th century – as well as the French Senate, located in the Jardin du Luxembourg.
As with Paris itself, the 6th Arrondissement is hard to write about without using superlatives. There’s a bit of everything here, from the busy sidewalks of Paris’ main art Gallery scene to the expansive green spaces and under-tree cafes of the Jardin du Luxembourg, from the huddle of kebab joints around Place St Michel to some of the finest restaurants in the world, the 6th has it all. Though, if you stay in the 6th perhaps you do risk not seeing much else of Paris.
