I’ve counted three: One at the Eiffel Tower, one at the Louvre and one at the Hotel de Ville. Any others? I don’t think the French invented them, but they certainly have perfected them — like the amusement park equivalent of the macaron!

    Lovely photo! Carousels are the best!
    There's a beautiful old carousel in Griffith Park in L.A. If you haven't been there already, it's very much worth seeing!

  26. Laurence de Paris says:

    You have one "au jardin des Halles" (1er arrondissement). Enjoy your stay !

  27. terry-b says:

    Yes the "Manege" is still alive in Paris. But they move about. The one at HDV is on some of the google streetviews of the area, not on others.

  28. Nanou says:

    Oui, c'est tres magnifique! Mais je prefere le carrousel de Montmartre, dans la basilique du Sacre-Coeur. Et excusez-moi pour ma reponse, mais je ne parle pas anglais tres bien… Bon voyage!
    I hope you travel well home.
