A short stay in Montreuil is still more than enough time to explore the town and check out its points of interest. You’ll find several impressive landmarks there, starting with the Church of St. Peter and St. Paul, a Gothic masterpiece and one of the oldest religious buildings in the region. The town’s top attraction, though, is the ancient peach walls, of which the remains are still there today. The orchards in Montreuil were famed during the 17th and 19th centuries for their incredible fruit harvests. Feel like a timeout to sit and relax before heading back to your hotel? Then the Parc des Beaumonts, one of the town’s green lungs, is the place for you.
Staying in Montreuil for longer? Take a stroll to the Parc Montreau and visit the Living History Museum to see collections on both local and national heritage, dating from the Revolution all the way to the Second World War. Check out the Montreuil flea markets, too — the perfect place for a spot of weekend bargain-hunting. Some major Parisian tourist attractions are less than half an hour away, like the Château de Vincennes, Père-Lachaise cemetery, and Montmartre. The town’s Première Classe hotel is also the ideal base for attending a conference at the Villepinte exhibition center.
Take some time out to unwind in the fresh air during your family stay in Montreuil with a trip to the Jean Moulin les Guilands departmental park. There are playgrounds there for the kids, as well as a learning garden. But the must-visit for families in Montreuil is L'Île de Robinson, a Robinson Crusoe-themed amusement park and the only one of its kind in Europe. Finally, spend an extraordinary day out at Parc Astérix, only 40 minutes from your hotel.
