Top 5 Things to do in Paris in Winter
Paris - City of Lights, has never deserved its name more than it does in winter. During the festive season, the city turns into a real Christmas village to delight all your senses: from dazzling street illuminations to fairy-like shop windows, from resistless gingerbread smell to heavenly romantic atmosphere, Christmassy Paris is an experience like no other. Here are the top 5 things to do this winter 2018/2019.
Dazzling - Christmas Illuminations
Fraser Suites Le Claridge balconies offer one of the most somptuous views above the Champs-Elysées Avenue Christmas lights. This year, the Avenue has been floodlighting under the theme "Scintillance", offering to the passer-by a myriad of glowing stars.
The Champs-Elysées Christmas Market is an inevitable step for all epicureans and gourmands. Going from Place de la Concorde to Rond Point des Champs-Elysées, the little wooden houses will ravish you with their artisanal products: gingerbread, candies, mulled wine and crepes. Guests of Fraser Suites Le Claridge won’t have to travel far to discover the festivities with this Christmas market right on the doorstep.
Go Ice Skating
Throughout Paris several popular areas are transformed into festive ice-skating rinks where people of all ages can come and enjoy the holiday spirit. Open-air ice rinks can be found at Hotel de Ville, at Trocadero, and Champs-Elysees. However, the most unique ice rink worth a visit is located on the first floor of the Eiffel tower. Don’t miss the chance to ice skate within one of the most iconic landmarks in the world!
Ride the Ferris Wheel on Place de la Concorde
Wrap yourself up with your loved ones and take a cosy ride on the Ferries Wheel on Place de la Concorde. Here you can enjoy incredible views of the city that will be glistening with festive lights and decorations. Riding the ferris wheel at night is recommended to see Paris sparkle.
Fairy-like - Department Stores Christmas Shop Windows
It is a not-to-be-missed event: every winter, Paris department stores display a limitless imagination to send you into a more and more enchanting world. Children widen in admiration for these Christmas fairy sceneries.
Festive - New Year’s Eve celebrations
New Year’s Eve is not to be missed as one of the top things to do in Paris in Winter. Last year, hundreds of thousands of people gathered to celebrate the New Year altogether at the feet of the Arch of Triumph. And it seems that traditional counting, fireworks and other celebrations might be even more impressive on this mythical Avenue!
