The magic of Christmas in Paris

The magic of Christmas in Paris

Magical, enchanted, delightful; these are words that describe the Christmas season in Paris to perfection. During your stay in your Parisian home from home, the Hotel Juliana, our team will be happy to help you make the most of the special festive season atmosphere...


Christmas in Paris; the great classics

Let's start with a look at the essential Christmas in Paris; the things you absolutely cannot miss! Our team had fun ranking these but were unanimous that the illuminations should be in first place. Wander along the Champs-Elysées under garlands of light, admire the Eiffel Tower setting the night sky aflame, contemplate the city’s monuments in their festive finery... and you’ll see what we mean. Second place goes to the amazingly lovely shop windows of the capital’s department stores. Stand in front of these colourful and imaginative scenes that are like portals into a gorgeous Yuletide world and you’ll rediscover your inner child. Finally, in third place, is munching roast chestnuts in the Jardin des Tuileries!


Some newer Christmas traditions

The following things to do are fairly recent and yet for us they’re already part of what makes Christmas so wonderful. First, strap on some skates and glide away across the largest temporary ice rink in the world, situated under the glass roof of the Grand Palais. Frosty festive fun guaranteed! Then, head to the Jardin des Plantes to admire the sublime creations that populate their outdoor exhibition-event: Illuminated Ocean. Huge marine creatures fill the paths and the sky of the Jardin des Plantes and create a world full of undersea magic. Finally, treat yourself to a luxurious and peaceful Christmas shopping spree thanks to the private lounges of the Bon Marché department store and its dedicated stylists...

The Hotel Juliana team is eager to share with you all the magic of Christmas in Paris. From shopping tips to romantic walks amidst the illuminations, we will help you make the most of this special time.
