Travel tips for a round trip on the Seine

The best time for a boat trip on the Seine

Seine boat trips are among the most popular sightseeing offers in Paris. Seen from the Seine, the city is particularly picturesque. Many of the sights are located directly on the shore. But what about the perfect time for a great view from the deck of the ship? The best time for a boat trip is of course when the sun is shining and the sky is blue. But even when it rains, the round trip on the Seine does not fall into the water. Thanks to the sightseeing boats with panoramic windows, you can sit in the dry even when it rains and admire the attractions on the banks of the Seine. Most of the boat tours run between April and September.

Sights along the banks of the Seine

The most beautiful and popular sights of Paris are almost all located on the banks of the Seine, above all the landmark of Paris par excellence, the Eiffel Tower. During a relaxed boat trip you can also marvel at many other sights of the "city of love". The top highlights that you will admire during a boat trip are, besides the Eiffel Tower, the Louvre, the Pont de Neuf and the Cathedral of Notre Dame.

The most popular boat tour on the Seine

Among the popular boat tours across the Seine are the offers of the providers Bateaux Mouches and Bateaux Parisiens. The fleet of Bateaux Mouches sets sail from the Pont de l'Alma on the right bank of the Seine. The ships of Bateaux Parisiens directly at the Eiffel Tower or the Cathedral Notre-Dame. The boat trips start at least once an hour and the boats run at regular intervals. The alternative is the "Batobus". On the round trip with a Batobus, you have the possibility to get on and off as often as you like at nine different stations along the shore.

The culinary tour across the Seine

Why not simply combine a sightseeing adventure with a culinary tour of French cuisine? Many providers of the so-called "dinner trips" have also thought of this and serve their guests not only a package full of sightseeing attractions but also culinary highlights of the Parisian cuisine. The dinner boat trips take place in the evening in the beautiful light of the setting sun.

The most beautiful bridges of Paris

The most famous and oldest bridge that you can admire during a boat trip across the Seine is indisputably the Pont de Neuf. It was already opened in 1607 and connects the Ile de la Cité with the right and left bank of the Seine. But the most beautiful bridge is the Pont Alexandre III, which connects the two banks of the Seine between the Invalides and the Grand Palais. With the two gold-decorated statues at its respective ends, it represents an absolute showpiece of the architecture of the time. The pedestrian bridge Pont des Arts, which you will also pass through, is known by many tourists and locals as "the bridge of love". Until not so long ago, thousands of "love locks" hung on their railings, but they had to be removed. The bridge threatened to collapse under the weight of the castles.

Free boat trip with The Paris Pass

With the Paris Pass the boat trip with Bateaux Parisiens is free. The Paris Pass is worthwhile even when visiting a few sights. The pass is valid for 2, 4 or 6 days, depending on your choice. Included in the price are sightseeings as the Louvre, Notre-Dame, the Musée d'Orsay, Versailles Castle and many more. In addition, the Paris Pass gives you free use of public transport and the metro.

How long does a boat trip on the Seine take?

A boat trip across the Seine in Paris takes about 1.5 hours, depending on the fleet and the offer. The cheapest tours are already over after one hour. If you book an offer including dinner, the cruise on the Seine can last up to four hours. If you use the Batobuses, your ticket is valid at least the whole day and you can get on and off as you wish.

6 highlights of a boat trip on the Seine

Boat tours on the Seine are busier than almost any other attraction in Paris. Tours range from ordinary sightseeing to night-time light cruises and smaller dinner cruises as the sun goes down. But all boat trips have one thing in common - you should not miss these highlights of the tours:

1. Eiffel Tower Paris

The Eiffel Tower, or "La Tour Eiffel", is the symbol of Paris and is visited on every boat trip across the Seine. Already in the period from 1887 to 1889, the 100th anniversary of the French Revolution, the Eifel Tower is one of the most famous landmarks of France. The 324 metre high iron tower is located in the 7th arrondissement, directly on the banks of the Seine.

2. Louvre Museum

The Musée du Louvre is probably the most famous art museum of the world and is located within the former royal residence Palais du Louvre, also in the immediate proximity of the Seine. From the sightseeing boats you can enjoy a great view of the famous pyramid of the Louvre, which was ridiculed as a "greenhouse" shortly after its construction. Today it is one of the most famous architectural and artistic masterpieces of Paris.

3. Notre Dame

The cathedral Notre-Dame is located on the small island Ile de la Cité in the middle of Paris. In front of the cathedral of Notre Dame, there are many tourists, specially in the summer time, so that there are often long waiting lines. A little tip: many people do not know that the towers of Notre-Dame can also be visited. Dare to climb the towers of Notre-Dame and enjoy a wonderful view over Paris and the ships on the Seine.

4. Pont de Neuf

Translated, Pont de Neuf means "new bridge". A funny fact when you consider that the Pont de Neuf is the oldest bridge in Paris. Built as early as 1620, it now connects the city island Ile de la Cité with the two banks of the Seine. The bridge is usually passed through on every boat trip, so you can take one or two souvenir photos of the oldest "new bridge".

5. Ile de la Cité

The Ile de la Cité on the Seine is home to the famous cathedral of Notre Dame, but the city island can do much more. At the western end of the small isle there is a wild pasture under which - directly on the banks of the Seine - it is excellent for relaxing and dreaming. A little relaxation from an exciting sightseeing tour is guaranteed here.

6. Lights crossing the Seine at night

A very special highlight are the boat tours after dusk. The so-called "light rides" at night, are offered by different companies. But the best way is to use the provider "Bateaux Mouches". The ships of this fleet are equipped with the most extensive and brightest spotlights, so that the sights visited are bathed in a magical light.
