Christmas Lights in Paris

Noël à paris en 2016

As Christmas is coming soon, Paris wears a festive dress and illuminations are just magical in the French Capital.
Here for you, a little idea of walk at nightfall, in order to enjoy this festive and magical atmosphere …

Start with Boulevard Haussmann and its department stores. Windows of Printemps and Lafayette Galleries are an enchantment for kids and adults. Do not forget to pass the door of the Lafayette Galleries. Its mythical Christmas tree awaits you under the splendid dome. Admire it from the ground floor then go up to the first floor and download the application of the place. You will then discover the building under a snow storm with polar bears plunging in fountains! Do not miss it!

Take the direction of the Madeleine, take a short break at Fauchon, and leave with a bottle or a foie gras. Or go to the caviar shops on the other side of the square. Then go to Place de la Concorde where the Ferris Wheel takes the role of a lighthouse in the Parisian night.

Finally, go up the Champs-Elysées with its white chalets. The gourmet market offers oysters, foie gras, sauerkraut, Parisian beer … The atmosphere is warm and festive. A glass of warm wine in your hand, enter the magic forest. Enchanted animals surprise by their realism.Children can even see Santa Claus on his sled. And maybe he will stop on the Champs-Elysées to talk to the nicest ones … Finally, animations such as the Skating rink or rides can warm the bodies in these winter evenings!

From the Arc de Triomphe, go back and enjoy the most beautiful avenue in the world adorned with its lights. Paris is yours tonight!
