THE GRAND PALAIS ÉPHÉMÈRE
Paul joined the Inwood adventure during an internship and now holds a position in the Sales Department. For this favorite, Paul tells us about one of his favorite cultural places in the capital, the Grand Palais Éphémère.
Paul recommends the Grand Palais Éphémère in Paris
The Grand Palais Éphémère saw the light of day on the Champ de Mars at the beginning of the renovation of the famous Parisian monument, the Grand Palais, which is located in the Champs-Élysées district. Since June 2021, the fully demountable and environmentally friendly building has been hosting the events traditionally held at the Grand Palais, such as the FIAC and the Saut Hermès horse show. The Grand Palais Ephemera is also part of the large-scale project to host the Olympic Games in Paris in the summer of 2024. Several competitions such as judo and wrestling will be held within the walls of this ephemeral architectural work.
Paul discovered this place, which has become an essential part of the Parisian cultural scene, during the Taste of Paris, where he was able to meet many chefs and figures of the French gastronomy. Our Inwood Lover likes this place for its “temporary aspect which fits perfectly in the landscape of the Champ de Mars”.
“At the bottom of the Eiffel Tower, the Grand Palais Éphémère is perfectly located”
Our Inwood Lover, originally from Brittany, really enjoys discovering new places in Paris since his arrival in the capital. He tells us that one of his pet peeves is to walk around the Champ de Mars because "being at the foot of the Eiffel Tower, the Grand Palais Ephemeral is perfectly located, it is difficult to do better." Indeed, Paul usually spends his free time in the two neighborhoods surrounding the Grand Palais Éphémère, the École Militaire and Grenelle districts, which are full of shops and restaurants. Also, the Grand Palais Éphémère is ideally located only a few steps away from the Inwood hotels located in the 7th and 15th arrondissements of Paris.
Paul recommends us to visit the Grand Palais Ephemeral for exhibitions and sporting events because "the place lends itself perfectly to it; it is modular to the infinity". For photography enthusiasts, our Inwood Lover suggests having your portrait taken on the Champ de Mars with the reflection of the Eiffel Tower on the windows of the Grand Palais Éphémère.
Do not hesitate any longer! Discover the Grand Palais Éphémère, its numerous events and its surroundings full of culture and activities during your Parisian escapades.
