The Hortillonnages

The Hortillonnages
© Laurent Rousselin, Amiens Métropole

Situated in the heart of the town over an area of 300 ha, the Hortillonnages form a mosaic of floating gardens surrounded by canals.


Take a breath of fresh air and immerse yourself in the heart of the Hortillonnages. Here the watchword is silence! You will set out aboard a flat-bottomed electric boat to visit these floating market gardens, true havens of peace in a green setting just a stone's throw from the city centre.
