Paris

Paris

Paris is one of the most dynamic and exciting cities in Europe and in the world. The capital of France is a leading tourist destination for an excellent reason: it has everything you could want to see or do. To fly with Austrian Airlines to Paris and explore a city rich with history, culture, and business leadership is a dream trip. The most famous landmarks are exceptional and still exciting today: the Eiffel tower, Notre Dame Cathedral, the Napoleonic Arc de Triomphe. Le Marais in the Right Bank district of Paris has architectural gems of historical homes. The Champ-Elysees is a garden promenade made famous by the French Impressionist painters. Add the opera, theatre, the Louvre, fashion, and of course French cuisine and you have, well, ooh la la! Paris has a four season climate. The winters rarely see much snowfall and the summers have few excessively hot days.

EAT in Paris

Eat in Paris
Le Tokyo Eat

What's the current favourite of the Parisian in-crowd? To dine in the city's Museumscafés. And for good reason, as there are many benefits to be had. Most are hip, stylish and serve modern cuisine and also let's one's feasting appear to be cultivated.   As a tourist, you should be honest enough to visit the museum prior to grabbing a table, especially as the Palais de Tokyo will fascinate those with an interest for modern art. Once inspired, sit down and enjoy a mix of international and asian food on offer. It's also a form of art. And the dishes are as well thought through as the interior. The extravagant lighting was designed by Stéphane Maupin and is a real attraction. The crowd here is young, hip and beautiful!

Kong

The Kong polarises at the highest niveau: Whilst some love it and simply can't get enough, there are others that hate it because it is simply too snobby. Those who do like the Kong can spend their entire evening in posh ambience; there's fantastic food in the restaurant, and great drinks at the bar. After a while, it's only a few steps to the dance floor. Whether you find the music so good that you want to buy the CD to take home is purely a matter of taste. Indisputable however, is the fact that the Kong possesses this finest view of the Parisian night sky that you will ever experience. So head high, there's no ceiling above you, but a glass dome.

Chartier

Affordable French cuisine? It does exist! The Chartier is a great example, even though you would never guess so at first sight. Entering through the door is like taking a step back in time. The Chartier was opened in 1896, with the mission of offering decent French cuisine at a decent price. Not much has changed since then, the furnishing and ambience included. Back in the day, this attracted both the rich and the poor, but these days the Parisians have to share this little gem with the tourists. A tip for those with a formidable hunger: expect to wait up to 30 minutes at any time of the day, so plan in a wait before the hunger pangs get the better of you.

SHOPPING in Paris

The Broken Arm

They know each other from university: Anaïs Lafarge, Guillaume Steinmetz and Romain Joste. And pretty soon it was clear: when it comes to lifestyle and fashion they all agree with each other. That's why they founded the online magazine De Jeunes Gens Modernes in 2009 - along with five other friends.   Four years later, it's time for giving their mutual taste its own space - Anaïs, Guillaume and Romain open their own concept store: The Borken Arm in the Marais, named after a piece of art by Marcel Duchamp. The goods are carefully selected: you'll find garments by  Aurélie Bidermann, Christophe Lemaire, Kenzo, Isaac Reina, but also Nike, Our Legacy or Vans. The motto: Everything that catches their eyes during their work for the online magazine, everything that they personally like and that can be worn on a daily basis finds its way into the store. And it wouldn't be a concept store if there wasn't the attached café with little snacks and coffee from Norway (Solberg & Hansen). That's where the three friends cultivate their own friendship, and make new friends as well.

Lanvin

Jeanne Lanvin founded the Lanvin label in 1889, when she was only 22 years old. Forget the mother-daughter collection that brought the label into the limelight, Lanvin is already over that. The Paris elite didn't want to wait around for mama and baby: they all wanted to wear the latest from Jeanne. That is still the case today, and it could be because Lanvin never jumps on a trend, but rather set the trend themselves.   Not loud and piercing, but with decent, modest and emphatic elegance. The boutique, which was designed in the 1920's by Albert-Armand Rateau is still at the original address on the Rue du Faubourg Saint-Honoré.

Clown Montmartre

Your inner child will jump for joy when you enter the Clown Montmartre. The shop is packed full of masks, frippery, fake beards, yellow teeth, crazy hats, deadly wounds, wigs and anything else that can change a person in relatively short period of time. It's not just those with childish minds that come here, but also well-known stylists.If you're still lost for an idea, then come here and you are guaranteed to find something for the next fancy dress party. There are 4000 outfits, ranging from the King of Rock'n'Roll to King Kong and many, many others. And with a bit of creativity, you can also put together your own outfit with affordable accessories.

SIGHTS in Paris

Montorgueil

As hard as it is, you have to ask your way to Rue Montorgueil. The unpronouncable district is the hippest in the whole city of Paris. Where the fish traders once did their business, those in the scene have now settled in and it's actually the same as it always has been: The houses are still yet to be renovated, the rental prices are still cheaper as elsewhere and the young and the creative are inevitably drawn here in droves.   Sundays present a great opportunity to take a leisurely stroll through the area. The bars and cafés are full of people having a relaxed chat. Even the delicatessens are open on Sundays. Those that want to go home as a complete insider should come on a Saturday and visit the fashion boutiques in the golden shopping triangle between rue Montmartre and Rue du Jour. Even the lively Rue Tiquetonne boasts numerous stores, tattoo parlours, restaurants and bars. Head to one of the cafés or a bar to enjoy a comfortable end to your day. Ask around, because the top spots change quicker than you can drink a glass of wine.   And don't leave without visitng the traditional Stohrer chocolate store. The quirky specialty here is La Réligieuse à l'ancienne, a church spire made from coffee and chocolate eclairs.

Fête de Ganesh

The yearly Fête de Ganesh is one of the most colourful events in Paris. Every year in August little India gets into party mode and showcases its culture in the French capital. The celebrations start after a religious ceremony at the Sri Manicka Vinayakar Alayam Temple.   Parisians, commuters and tourists come from all corners of the city to witness this spectacle at the 18th Arrondissement. Active participants dance through the streets with figures of Ganesha decorated with colourful fruits and flowers and smash coconuts on the pavement. There's Indian music, dancers in traditional dress and street artists.   The ceremony takes place annually in August.

Schauen & Shoppen

There are shops as far as the eye can see at the Boulevard Haussman, but you will find everything under one room at the elegant Galeries Lafayette. And if you're searching for a trendy garment, perfum, book or some exclusive souvenirs to take home, then you've found the right place. So marvel at the coloured-glass dome and the sheer convenience of it all.   To enjoy the view, we recommend a break on the top floor, where there is solid French cuisine to be had at reasonable prices. You will dine well above the rooves of Paris; the Madeleine is over there, with the green roof, further in the background you will spot the Grand Palais and a bit further, the tower of all towers is right there - yes, the Eiffel Tower. You can even see the Sacré Coeur from up here! Enjoy!

STAY in Paris

Mama Shelter

In the erstwhile grey working class district Charonne the hotel dynasty Trigano has created a boutique hotel with 172 rooms and Philippe Starck's handwriting. The ceilings in the lobby and restaurant are painted with black crayon and the artists that are immortalised here leave no doubt about the responsible designer. Similarly you find the typical colour contrasts and dimmed lighting.   It looks different, however, in the open kitchen. The pots are hanging from the plafond and in front of it huge oak tables with big bowls (from which everybody eats simultaneously, if desired) are standing on the floor. Feels like being at one's mum's. The hidden agenda is to simplify communication which can be continued at the over-sized football table. You can take pictures of yourself at the computer terminal in the concrete wall which afterwards flicker along with a message across flat screens in the whole restaurant and bar. iMacs in the rooms are part of the standard facilities and so is free W-LAN in the whole building. And in the morning there is a navy blue breakfast newsroom with CNN and flat monitors as table tops.

Villa St. Germain

Wengé wood, marble and precious materials. Those who place value in sophisticated and exclusive design will be spellbound in the Villa Saint Germain, established by Marie Christine Dorner. This dame learnt from one of the best: she was a pupil of Philippe Starck, the most famous French designer of all time.   The Villa is fantastic and exudes an elegance of excellence. Harmonie and simplicity, clear lines and soft colours set the tone here. And it's all found in the picturesque Saint Germain des Prés, right next to the Louvre and the Museum d'Orsay.   As a tip, order a glass of champagne or a whisky and soak in the ambience at the hotel Jazz bar, even if you're not staying overnight. Double rooms from 270 euros per night.

Vice Versa Hotel

Wrath, greed, sloth, pride, lust, envy, and gluttony. These are the seven deadly sins. And have served as inspiration for the new project of interior designer Chantal Thomass. The result: a comprehensive redesign of the Vice Versa Hotel in Paris.   Each and every flower ornament, butterfly pattern and lace ribbon has been conceived by the renowned designer herself. The same applies to the furniture, beds and fauteuils, wallpapers, fabrics and curtains. Afterwards Thomass has put everything into the rooms of the seven floors and painted them with matching colours: mellow in beige, sensual in black, or playful in sugar pink. In addition Thomass glued notes to the wall, painted oversized cutlery on the carpets and screwed tea pots to the ceiling as light fixtures. In order to avoid an explosion of colour there are cosy sofas in white in the entrance area. Parts of the hotel mutate into a Etruscan palace. That is inciting indeed - but not necessarily to sleep!
