  • Overview

    The Louvre Museum is one of the the most visited, oldest, largest and famous art galleries and museums in the world. Home to masterpieces like Leonardo Da Vinci’s Mona Lisa and the ancient Greek sculpture Venus de Milo, it is an art and culture lover’s delight.

    The painstakingly put together Winged Victory that was found in 118 pieces on a hillside on a small island called Samothrace in the Aegean Sea is a must see. The Louvre has an awe inspiring transparent pyramid in its courtyard and is a great place to learn about Europe’s rich history and culture.

    Ending Point

    End of the tour at the Louvre Museum.


    Die Tour beginnt an der Adresse unseres Partnerbüros. Hier treffen Sie Ihren Reiseleiter (nach Wahl deutsch-, englisch- oder französischsprachig) und gehen anschließend zu Fuß zum Louvre.

    Verbringen Sie etwas Zeit im Tuilerien-Garten, bevor Sie den Louvre betreten. Der Jardin des Tuileries ist ein zentraler Park in Paris. Seine Gehwege und Rasenflächen erstrecken sich entlang der Seine vom Louvre bis hin zum Place de la Concorde. Der Tuilerien-Garten mit seinen wunderschönen Becken und Statuen wurden 1664 von Le Notre, dem Gärtner des französischen Königs Ludwig XIV und dem Designer des Versailles Parks, entworfen.

    Im Inneren des Louvre-Museums wird Ihr erfahrener Reiseführer die drei folgenden Meisterwerke ausführlicher Erklären:

    • Die Statue der Nike von Samothrake wurde auf einer kleinen griechischen Insel in der Ägäischen See namens Samothrake entdeckt. Sie wurde 1863 von dem Archäologen Charles Champoiseau über einen verlassenen Hügel verstreut gefunden.

    • Die Venus von Milo ist eine antike griechische Statue und eines der bekanntesten Werke der antiken griechischen Bildhauerei. Man glaubt, dass sie Aphrodite (von den Römern Venus genannt), die griechische Göttin der Liebe und Schönheit, darstellt. Es handelt sich um eine Marmorstatue, deren Arme und ursprünglicher Sockel verloren sind.

    • Die Mona Lisa oder La Gioconda ist ein Ölgemälde aus dem 16. Jahrhundert von Leonardo da Vinci; sie ist das bekannteste Gemälde der Welt. Es gibt nur wenige Kunstwerke, die so vielen Untersuchungen, Studien und Parodien unterzogen wurden.

    Die Führung durch den Louvre endet gegen 11:15 Uhr. Sie können anschließend noch im Museum bleiben und sich die Kunstwerke in Ruhe ansehen.

    *Wichtiger Hinweis! Das Partnerbüro: 214 Rue de Rivoli ist bis auf weiteres wegen Renovierungsarbeiten geschlossen.

    • Great tour-- worth the money to skip the line

      I took my two boys to the Louvre and the skip the line was worth the money. The tour guide was funny, knowledgable and kept us informed about what was going to happen along the tour. ...

    • The Louvre the easy way and great way !!

      This was an easy way to traverse a vast amount of territory. We felt comfortable enough to go back and visit other displays in that territory. I would recommend this tour to everyone ...
