Place du Trocadéro-et-du-11-Novembre

Place du Trocadéro-et-du-11-Novembre is a square in the 16th arrondissement of Paris (France).

It is located at the crossroads of avenue du Président-Wilson, avenue Kléber, avenue Raymond-Poincaré, avenue d’Eylau, avenue Georges-Mandel and avenue Paul-Doumer.

It opens onto the Human Rights square and the Palais de Chaillot, which houses the Museum of Man and the Navy in its west wing (Passy) and the City of Architecture in its east wing.

Located on the heights of Chaillot, its diameter is 164 meters. It is planted with trees and decorated in its center with an equestrian statue of Marshal Foch, surrounded by a lawn that is difficult to access for pedestrians.

To the south-east, the square opens onto the Palais de Chaillot and its square overlooking the Seine and offering a clear view of the Eiffel Tower.

The corner of avenues Georges-Mandel and Paul-Doumer, to the southwest of the square, is occupied by the Passy cemetery, overlooking it. A monument to the glory of the French army, the work of Paul Landowski, is installed against the surrounding wall.

The square is one of the first tourist places in the capital. With various newsstands, it mainly has cafes and brasseries, from east to west: Café du Trocadéro, Le Malakoff, Pâtisserie Carette, Café Kléber and Le Rooster. On New Year’s Eve, the square is a gathering place for Parisians and tourists.

It is served by lines (M) (6) (9) at the Trocadéro metro station.
