Why should I visit Paris ?

In love with the city of love
It's enough to say its name, and the world is in awe: Paris. It's the city where fashion is made, artists are inspired and love stories are written. The city of charming cafés and romantic streets. The city that knows savoir vivre. But Paris is a lot more than that: In tech start-ups, studios and wine bars far away from Notre Dame and the Champs-Élysées, the Parisians are constantly working on the next big thing. Because setting trends is what they do – century after century.

3 of the many reasons to travel to Paris

  1. Travel to Paris - The Eiffel Tower
    The Eiffel Tower
    The Eiffel Tower is an architectural icon. The mastermind behind the structure, Gustave Eiffel, created the tower as entrance to the 1889 World's Fair. Initially, the construction made out of 18,038 pieces of wrought iron didn't have very many fans. That has changed though: Today, the Eiffel Tower is the most-visited monument in the world with more than 6 million climbing it every year. By the way: Gustave Eiffel loved his construction so much, that he had a secret apartment in its top. Since 2015 you can step into the tiny flat 285 metres above the ground.
  2. Travel to Paris - Château de Versailles
    Château de Versailles
    Louis XIV built Versailles to impress – and redefined opulence. In total, the palace has 700 rooms and more than 350 fireplaces. All of them are decorated with marble, frescos and gilt. The most dazzling chamber, the Galerie des Glaces (Hall of Mirrors), is a ballroom with 357 mirrors that reflect the huge windows that overlook the garden. And that garden is just as beautiful as the palace itself. Take some time to explore it. We bet you, you won't find any flaws.
  3. Travel to Paris - Sacré-Cœur de Montmartre
    Sacré-Cœur de Montmartre
    At the top of the steep streets of Montmartre stands graciously the Basilique du Sacré-Cœur and guards over musicians, artist and everybody strolling through the charming neighborhood. Built out of travertine stone that is known as Château-Landon, the church becomes more radiant everytime it rains. On contact with water the fascade exudes calcite making it white. Climb the 300 steps to its dome and soak in the gorgeous panorama or come on Sunday and listen to the organ play during mass. You won't regret it.

Did You Know?

There are ten vineyards in Paris.

The tradition to grow wine within the city borders goes back to Roman times. Paris' oldest vineyard is located in Montmatre, where wine has been cultivated for more than 1,000 years.

When is the best time to visit Paris?

Paris is beautiful all year-round. Spring is the peak season to visit, and there's a reason why: Everybody is outside, cafés and streets are buzzing and Paris' gorgeous gardens are filled with seasonal flowers. The summer months in Paris can get quite warm (30°C and over) and crowded, but there is plenty to do. If you decide to explore the city in July, make sure to attend the Fête de la Musique. It's a day of music and magic – the city will turn into an huge concert hall. In September and October, the weather is still mild, but you can expect a much thinner crowd. Avoid traveling to Paris during the fashion week though – in late February and late September the hotel prices jump up and the city will be packed.

Paris Travel Tips

  1. food
    Tastiest food to try
    Croissants, what else? Made with high quality butter, French croissants make the perfect breakfast. Go to the famous Du Pain et des Idées and have it with a cup of coffee. So simple, so perfect, so Parisian. Also a must-have in Paris: cheese. Check out Laurent Dubois, a cheesemonger that is known for its selection of Comté and small production chèvres. In the caves below the shop, Dubois ages Sainte-Maure de Touraine and several other cheeses. A paradise for every cheese lover!
  2. viewpoint
    Best viewpoint
    The Eiffel Tower, of course. If you go to the second platform, you'll get a stunning view of Paris' centre and it's most famous monuments. If you want to see all of Paris, stretching out to the Charles de Gaulle Airport, go up to the third platform. Also great: the view from the Arc de Triomphe. After climbing 234 steps the perfect symmetry of the Avenue des Champs-Élysées will take your breath away.
  3. get_around
    Easiest way to get around
    Vélib' bikes. Since Paris' centre is too big to be fully explored on foot, biking is the best option! Head over to a Vélib station and buy a day pass or a 7-days-ticket! Another option is to get yourself a metro ticket. Aside from biking, this is the best mode of transportation in Paris.
  4. shopping
    Perfect for a shopping spree
    Take home a little souvenir from the fashion capital of the world. Shop at Place des Vosges and in Montmatre if you love crafts, antiques and art, visit Rue du Faubourg Saint-Honoré for designer goods and trendy concept stores, and head to Rue du Commerce if you don't want to spend too much money, but still want to grab the latest Parisian trends.
  5. art
    Most impressive art
    Paris is home to the most precious art collections in the world. Take advantage of your time there and see as many masterpieces as you can: The edgy Palais de Tokyo and the Centre Pompidou are dedicated to modern and contemporary art, while the Musée d'Orsay houses the largest collection of impressionist and post-impressionist masterpieces in the world. And of course, you've heard of the Louvre before. It is the biggest museum in the world and home to the Mona Lisa.
  6. nightlife
    Best nightlife
    Le Marais is Paris's most welcoming and thriving nightlife district, where the LGBTQ+ scene is booming. Stop by at Les Souffleurs, a hip gay bar with an excellent playlist. If you enjoy crowded and lively parties, the Bastille district might be interesting for you, too. Up for a wine tasting? Check out Ô Chateau! It's the best wine bar in Paris. And for some entertainment afterwards, spend a night at the Moulin Rouge. Breathtaking dance moves and costumes guaranteed.
  7. parks
    Nicest parks
    Stop by at the Jardin des Tuileries after visiting the Louvre or head to the picturesque Jardin du Luxembourg to enjoy a nice picnic. The stunning Parc des Buttes-Chaumont allows you to escape the loud streets of Paris for a bit and instead relax at a lake and waterfall.
  8. kids
    Most entertaining for kids
    Let's be honest, Disneyland Paris is heaven for kids. But there are other options, too. Take your kids to the Muséum National d’Histoire Naturelle for some nature history or explore Les Catacombes, Paris' underground tunnels and caves. A little spooky, but so worth it!
  9. secret
    Best kept secret
    59 Rivoli is unlike any other art gallery in Paris. The building is covered in writing and paintings – inside and out – and home to some incredible artwork, including sculptures made out of junk and huge colorful portraits. Absolutely worth seeing!
