Christmas, the favorite time of the year for children. During a month, a festive atmosphere takes over Paris. The nickname of the City of Lights takes its meaning thanks to the Christmas illuminations present everywhere in the capital city, and mostly on the major arteries such as the Avenue des Champs-Élysées and the Boulevard Haussmann.

The illuminations and Christmas decorations do not only stop in the streets of Paris. This period is ideal to discover the many Passages of the city which are also illuminated and decorated with red and gold.

One street in particular is not to be missed during this holiday season, it is the Rue du Faubourg Saint-Honoré, where the great luxury French brands make it a point of honor each year to reinvent themselves and offer more grandiose decorations from one year to the next.


To discover the City of Lights on the rhythm of Christmas, we suggest you to start the day with the Grands Magasins. On the renowned Boulevard Haussmann, as from November 17th, you will be able to admire the famous windows of the Galeries Lafayette. Discover 11 scenes signed by the atelier Bournillat on the theme of “1, 2, 3, CHRISTMAS!”, as well as a grandiose Christmas three where Santa Claus is transformed into a cosmonaut.

As for the Printemps Haussmann, discover 92 characters in the windows of the store on the theme of “Let’s share Christmas!”

Children’s paradise continues at the Passage des Princes, also known as the temple of toys. Many toy stores for kids as for adults are to be discovered, something to dive into a world apart in the heart of the city. It is also the perfect time to prepare the Christmas gift list to Santa Clause for the one who have been good this year!

Do not forget to go to the several markets and most of all Christmas markets of Paris in order to sip on the most festive of Christmas drinks, mulled wine and hot chocolate!
