A Christmas in Paris to finish the year in style

A Christmas in Paris to finish the year in style

Discover the many attractions and events organised throughout the capital in the run-up to, and during, the festive season. The Hotel Albe Saint-Michel will help to make your Christmas in Paris a wonderful experience that you’ll always remember!


The cosy ambiance of the Christmas markets

Enjoy an invigorating mulled wine or some delicious hot chocolate, savour waffles, crêpes, donuts or roast chestnuts... all the kinds of winter comfort food you love! As the festive season approaches, it’s also time search out original gift ideas, artisanal craft items you won’t find elsewhere or that perfect decorative finishing touch for your Christmas tree or party table. Good news; the Christmas markets that pop up throughout Paris have opened their charming little wooden chalets for business.


Fascinating window displays and magical illuminations

The Christmas windows of the Paris department stores, especially those on the Boulevard Haussmann such as Printemps and Galeries Lafayette, are always eagerly anticipated. With their spectacular scenes, animated automatons and catchy music, they are true works of art that will whisk you away on the wings of dream. Prolong the magic by taking an evening stroll along the main arteries of Paris to see the city’s Christmas illuminations. The Champs Elysees and more than a hundred other streets and squares sparkle with a breathtaking constellation of lights!


Get your skates on!

Have fun with family or friends on the temporary ice rinks that spring up all over the capital. Some are huge and magical such as the nearly 3,000 m2 rink installed beneath the stunning glass roof of the Grand Palais. Others await you in the Jardin des Tuileries, atop the Grande Arche and even on the rooftop of the Galeries Lafayette... And to warm you up, snack bars are on hand, because a good hot chocolate is always welcome after a vigorous session on the ice!
