Christmas lights in Paris are a sight that everyone should see because they turn this most beautiful city into somewhere very special for the festive season -- and at Hotel Herse d'Or we look forward to welcoming you this Christmas.
Christmas lights in Paris sparkle and thrill
Every street, every district in Paris competes to provide the best light show, and they begin from the beginning of November onwards.
On the most famous boulevard in Paris, the Champs-Élysées, the 200 plane trees that line the street are lit up in a high-tech display that makes each evening a unique delight. Paris is known as the city of lights, and at no other time is this more true than at Christmas.
Take an evening stroll, and you'll also come across the famous parisian Christmas market with all sorts of stalls selling arts and crafts that make ideal gifts - or perhaps just a present for yourself. Food and drink is also on offer, so you can walk and snack at the same time, while enjoying the spectacle around you.
At the Place de l’Hotel de Ville and the Trocadero, there's an ice rink and giant igloo among other attractions. And the famous gardens there are lit up too.
For the famous department stores of Paris, this is the time for their most opulent displays. From extraordinary window arrangements, to fully lit interiors, this is the time to see the world's best stores at their finest. And your Christmas shopping for family and friends will become a real pleasure.
Hotel Herse d'Or a great base for Christmas lights in Paris
At Hotel Herse d'Or, we are your perfect location to see these Christmas lights - and so much more. The Marais, our district, has its own Christmas attractions and we'll be happy to help you decide where to go and what to do to make your festive stay in Paris the most special of occasions.
