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.

SHOPPING in Paris

Stella Cadente

Designer Stanislassia Klein is so well established, that her designs are snapped up by big department stores such as Printemps. But she still stays true to her roots on the Canal St. Martin. Eastern Paris is not known for high-priced fashion. This fits to the image of it's labels however, which is casual, original and urban. Particularly cool is the playful jewellery, that is mainly made out of coloured crystals. Don't let a ring that is too tight, or a necklace that pinches put you off, as fitting comes for free.

L'Eclaireur

The year: 1980. The idea: To bring new and interesting fashion to Paris. The scouts: Matine and Armand Hadida. The opening of the first boutique was over 30 years ago. And it wasn't the only one. A further 5 boutiques also came to the fashion scene. L'eclaireur stands for avant-garde fashion, that you simply cannot find anywhere else, and also for breathtaking interiors. The fashion comes from Ann Demeulemeester, Dries Van Noten and Junya Watanabe. Nobody und Fornasetti provided the furnishings.   Each one of the L'Eclaireur stores stock basically the same lables, nonetheless you should take a look in all of them, as each store is so individual and impressive. Beginners should go to the boutique on Rue Boissy. You almost feel like you're in an art gallery there and you can digest your first impressions at the bar or restaurant.

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.

STAY in Paris

Hotel Eldorado

Is a hotel just for tourists? Not necessarily. The small and chamrming Hotel Eldorado, with an attached bistro is loved by Parisians, for good reason!   The green inner courtyard is so appealing and inviting that you never want to leave, and the location is very quiet and peaceful, which makes the Eldorado the ideal place to stay, eat and feel good! The rooms are charming, even if they are simply furnished. But be warned, some rooms do not feature their own bathroom! But the prices here are very modest for Paris standards. Double rooms are available from 50 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!

Hotel Bel-ami

The design hotel Bel-ami is found in the western wing of the former Saint Germain abbey. You wouldn't even realise that Pope Alexander III entered the monastery through what is today the hotel lobby. Instead of the dreary monastery atmosphere; modern design, straight-forward style and earthy tones mean that you will never want to leave this hotel again.   Placed in the artistic and intellectual centre of Saint Germain, it's the perfect place for those who want to walk in the steps of Satres. A perfect place to philosophise is the remarkable Café de Flore, which is well worth the visit. And head to the brand-new wellness area with gym equipment, a sauna and treatment rooms. Double rooms from ?360 and suites from ?620 per night.

SIGHTS in Paris

Montmartre

A walk up a little alley way and you're at the stairs of the Sacré Coeur. Be careful here. Amongst the souvenir dealers there are also dodgy games of luck and tricky theives out there to make a quick buck. To the right of the Sacré Coeur park is the museum of more naive art. The Basilique de Sacré Coeur is positioned 130m above the city and was built out of brilliant white limestone. The Saint-Pierre-de-Montmartre church is unjustifiably found in the shadow of the Sacré Coeur. Founded in the year 1133, the building is an absolute gem. The Place de Tertre is the former town square turn meeting point for artists and tourists alike. Just around the corner, you will find the Musée Dalí, which pays homage to the artist who, just like Toulouse Lautrec, Pablo Picasso and Pierre-Auguste de Renoir, spent time in the artist's quarter of Montmarte. Further down the road is the Rue des Saules, where the Au Lapin Agile is to be found - the most famous cabaret in the city. World-famous artists like Apollinaire and Lautrec used to regularly come here for a drink. Even Picasso was a regular here, and once paid for his bill with a painting, that is worth millions today. Take the time to stroll through the steep alleyways surrounding the Montmarte and soak in the atmosphere of this enchanting quarter.

Louvre

There's one thing that you can kiss goodbye: the notion that you can see all this Museum has to offer in one visit. The Louvre boasts a massive 47,000m2 exhibition space. Don't forget to take a map from the front desk because you are sure to get lost amongst the great tomes. With the map in hand, select your favourites and go for it!   The highlight will remain the Mona Lisa for evermore, who now boldly casts her smile from behind a plate of armoured glass. Well at least for those that have the patience to line-up in the queue waiting to see her. The Louvre however has much much more to offer; with ancient Egyptian works, Oriental art, Greek sculptures and 19th century paintings, there's something for people from all walks of life here.

Notre Dame

You've got to make it through the mass of tourists here: a visit to Paris is nothing without having seen the Cathédrale de Notre Dame.The proudly gothic construction is on the Ile de la Cité, begun in 1163 and was completed in 1345 and is one of the first gothic cathedrals in the world. We will let you decide for yourself, whether or not the Notre Dame is the house of God. At least this was the intention of Bishop Maurice de Sully as he commissed the cathedral. Many historical events have taken place within these holy halls.   Would you like to be an emperor? The Notre Dame is particularly well suited, just as Napoleon once demonstrated. Afterwards, take the opportunity to once again look out on the city: the view from the steeples is breathtaking.

EAT in Paris

Meurice

Since 2007, the head chef Yannick Alléno has been decorated with three stars. The Ambience here is even deserving of a star itself. It is not often that you find a restaurant that is so kitschy yet so tasteful in style. Between the marble, gold detail and the ceiling frescos there is one particularly noble detail: there's a small stand next to every chair to respectfully cater for ladies handbags, so that the all-important item mustn't touch the floor or hang off the back of the chair. The kitchen is outstanding, there are set menus and also à la Carte dishes to be chosen. The wine list is exquisite, even the selection of open wines is sure to impress. There's an interesting surprise for a restaurant of this class: there's even a children's menu. Hot tip: the best tables are in the conservatory.

Austern & Co.

Eating oysters in Paris is just as important as a visit to the Eiffel tower. It doesn't get anymore authentic than this. Francis Dubourg, the owner of La Cabane à Huitres, cultivates his own oysters and puts them fresh on the table. His son travels to the Atlantic coast three times a week and returns with the fresh huitres.   13 magnificent claire oysters can be yours for just 13 euros. Those who aren't cut out for the slimy consistency of an oyster can opt for foie gras, cheese specialties or cannelles (small caramel cakes). The restauarant is very spartan and ordinary, but the level of service given by Francis and his daughter well and truly make up for it. A small story accompanies every wine and every meal, which is always told with a hearty serving of Esprit.

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.
