The cold feeds the excuses in January, so smile at it and you will enjoy winter in Paris !

What to do to enjoy Winter in Paris ?

Because we love Paris in winter, here are some activities that will undoubtedly reconcile you with the thermometer of recent days…

Culture in Paris


Paris is renowned for its museums and exhibitions. So take the opportunity to visit the major Parisian museums such as the Jacquemart-André Museum, the Orsay Museum or the Quai Branly Museum. The permanent and temporary collections are always incredibly rich. However, remember to take skip-the-line tickets so as not to wait outside too long.

And why discover museums a little less known to the general public? Some tested and approved recommendations:

Cinema is perfect in Winter

But yes, of course, winter is the ideal season for a good movie. In the 5th arrondissement of Paris there are still independent cinemas like Champo or Studio Galande. Head over to their sites for the movie release schedule.

Having fun or taking care of yourself

What a delightful idea that a hammam, then a scrub and a bath with eucalyptus … Go to Spa O’Kari or La Sultane de Saba to take care of yourself and possibly let yourself be tempted by a massage or a beauty ritual…

Shopping inside

Go to the Beaugrenelle shopping center, and spend the afternoon shopping without setting your nose outside! The little extra? A nail bar that pampers little hands battered by frost. The Galeries Lafayette or the Printemps Haussmann are also sure values when it comes to shopping.

Gourmet and comforting break in central Paris

The Tea Room of Hotel des Marronniers offers an enchanting and bucolic break for those who wish to escape from the city. Set in the veranda, facing an unsuspected garden from the rue Jacob, the choice is to be made between a steaming tea, a Viennese chocolate or a strong espresso. With a book or with a friend, the place is charming.

Finally, in the evening, choose a restaurant with a lovely intimacy. Italian flavors at Monteverdi, rue Guisarde, between armchairs, fireplace and piano bar. Historic atmosphere at Coupe Chou restaurant in rue de Lanneau. This old Parisian house warms the hearts with chimney fire, tomettes and visible beams.

What to plan for visiting Paris in winter?

Spending a winter vacation in Paris, during the holiday season or even just for a few days, is a great idea. However, here are some tips that can prove very useful…

  • A warm coat with gloves, hat and scarves and your favorite warm clothes. It would be a shame to bring back a nasty cold as a souvenir from the French capital.
  • An umbrella or rain gear. Rain loves Paris! And it must be said that in winter, the droplets like to visit the city as much as our customers…
  • A backpack. Simpler than a suitcase or a big bag to take everywhere, it will be easier to carry on the metro or the bus.
  • A map of Paris. It’s very easy to get lost in the city and having a map of Paris or the metro can save you the day if your phone has run out of battery.
  • Printing of your tickets for museums, theatres, shows… We wait often and for a long time in Paris. A little forethought will save you patience undermined by capricious weather.
  • A welcoming hotel right in the center of Paris for quick and easy access to your favorite places. And on this subject, we have a ready-made recommendation 😉
