    A wild hunt for the Bièvre -the lost river of Paris

    A wild hunt for the Bièvre -the lost river of Paris on Paris audio tour Highlights Around Parc Montsouris: From Hidden Water to Secret Villages

    As you reach the end of the tree patch, turn left onto rue des Berges-Hennequinnes please.

    “Berges” means "riverbank", it refers to the Bièvre, the lost river of the left bank that was covered after it got too polluted. It still runs underground, not far away from here.

    “Hennequines” refers to Hennequin, a will o’ the wisps, or the mythical leader of a wild hunt of undead lords coming back from the crusades. But we’re not scared of dead tyrants, are we? This is Paris!

    At the roundabout, exit near the firetruck signs, on the right-hand side.

Preview mode limited to first 3 locations.
