Among the highlights, the Avenue des Champs-Élysées and its gigantic curtain of light is a must, as is the huge decorated Christmas tree that sits in the centre of the Place Vendôme. But the smaller streets and lesser-known areas are also festooned with twinkling garlands of light for the festive season! All Paris is enchanted for Christmas, so come along and immerse yourself in the tender, charming and romantic atmosphere that enfolds the city at this special time of year. 


Magical worlds spring to life in shop windows

The display windows of the great Parisian department stores turn into magical theatres in December! Press your nose against the glass at BHV, Bon Marché, Galeries Lafayette and Printemps and see toys come to life and gorgeously lit scenes from fairytale worlds, illustrating themes that change each year. 


All the flavours of the holidays at the Christmas markets

Mulled wine, ginger biscuits, decorative objects, delicatessen products; everything you need for your end of year celebrations can be found in the Christmas markets of the capital.
