The 14th arrondissement of Paris (also known as "arrondissement de l'Observatoire"). is one of the 20 arrondissements (administrative districts) of the capital city of France.

Situated on the left bank of the River Seine, it contains most of the Montparnasse district, which has traditionally been home to many artists as well as a Breton community. The district is today best-known for its skyscraper, the Tour Montparnasse, and its major railway terminus, the Gare Montparnasse.

The 14th arrondissement also contains the Cité Internationale Universitaire de Paris, which is located near Parc Montsouris and Stade Charléty.
