Île Saint-Germain is an island located in the Seine in Issy-les-Moulineaux in the département of Hauts-de-Seine near Paris, France. It once housed a military camp that was later abandoned, but the island was redeveloped in 1980. The island is divided into two parts. The developed side includes offices and a residential area. The other side includes a park that has been commemorated by the Tour aux Figures (Tower of Figures) [1] painting by Jean Dubuffet. The Île Seguin is downstream.
