Ideas for holidays, weekends and trips in Saint-Germain-en-Laye and its surroundings
The Campanile Saint Germain en Laye hotel puts you in close proximity to world-class cultural sites and activities, both in town and in the surrounding areas.
The National Museum of Archaeology, located just 5km from the hotel, is a great place to start. The museum was established in the 19th century by Napoleon III and boasts the largest collection of prehistoric art in the world, with close to 30,000 artefacts. The museum itself, housed in the Royal Castle of Saint-Germain-en-Laye, is a work of art. Not far from the castle is a famous terrace, built for Louis XIV in the 17th century. It overlooks expansive gardens and a vineyard with 1900 pinot noir grapevines.
Saint-Germain-en-Laye is home to many other historic buildings, such as the Hotel de Noailles, which was built in the 17th century and served as the residence of the governors of Saint Germain.
The Saint Germain Church is another site worth visiting. The top of the church, accessible by stairs, offers a panoramic view of the town. Since Paris and Versailles are less than 20km away, you can easily visit their famous landmarks, such as the Eiffel Tower, the Louvre, and the magnificent Chateau de Versailles.
For outdoor fun, check out the Saint-Germain-en-Laye Forest northeast of the hotel, or Marly the King National Forest to the south.
No matter the reason for your stay at the Campanile Saint Germain en Laye hotel, you are sure to find something to suit your tastes.
