You have from December 8,2019 to January 6, 2020 to put on your skates. Enjoy gliding around in a magical setting at sunset, alone or in sweet companionship.

Let your inner child out in front of the department store windows

The Christmas windows of department stores have become a must-see attraction in the capital. And that’s great because the hotel is right next door! There are magical scenes where animated figures and magical decorations coexist.

This year, the Galeries have been transformed into a Christmas hive.
