Visit Paris, Frances capital and largest city! One of the worlds leading cultural centres and ranked in the top three most influential countries in the world, there is no more exhilarating place to visit! You can fly with Austrian Airlines to Paris and when there do not miss out on a visit to the nineteenth-century opera house Opéra Garnier elegant and the sophisticated classical music played there. Or, if opera is not your thing, then make sure to check out the magnificent Eiffel Tower standing at 1063ft over the city centre of Paris. It offers some of the best views of the city centre allowing you to take in the true beauty of this great city! If you are interested in art, make sure to check out the Louvre which is the worlds most visited museum with some of the worlds most prized works of art on show. Forever emblematic in romantic hearts is the "City of Love". It is also held in history buffs' minds as a city rich with history, in the creative as abundant in art, and for fashion plates as the epitome of innovative haute couture. The most common and enriching destinations are the Eiffel Tower, the Arc de Triomphe, the Louvre Museum, the Notre Dame Cathedral, taking in a show at the Moulin Rouge or the Palais Garnier, enjoying an afternoon at the opulent and historic Versailles Palace, or just simply strolling across the bridges along the Seine River and taking in the local cuisine and wine. There are various ways to arrive, and it all depends on your own personal travel plans or budget. There are two primary airports: Charles de Gaulle (CDG), and Paris-Orly Airport (ORY). To make general flights to Paris search regardless of specific airport, use the city code 'PAR'. To better make the most of your budget, keep an eye out on flight and hotel packages and the exchange rates several months in advance to get a feel for the market fluctuations and when to strike on fares. Once in the city, start every morning with a cup of espresso and a crust of baguette, walk everywhere and take in the sights, and buy an affordable pass for their intricate and efficient metro system. Make use of 'S'il vous plait' and 'merci' often. The French aren't as snooty as they're said to be, but manners are always internationally appreciated. By the end, you will be sad to go.

Valentine´s Day Journey
„Der achte Jahrestag am Eiffelturm war super! Wir waren glücklicherweise in zehn Minuten oben, weil wir früh genug dran waren. Andrea war so bewegt von dem Gefühl über ganz Paris zu schauen, dass sie vor Freude geweint hat.“It couldn’t be more romantic! Right on time to celebrate their eighth anniversary, Viola and Andrea were off to Paris! They won the trip in an Austrian Airlines competition. And to say thank you, they sent us their best photos and told us about their Valentine’s Day journey.

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.


To browse through a fleamarket in Paris should be on your list of things to do. A fleamarket that consistently pulls a young and hip crowd is the fleamarket at the Porte de Vanves. With a bit of luck you might even find a few weird and wonderful items here. Rare items are less likely to be found, but small finds with the licence to become personal treasures are waiting to be found. Think art-deco tables, chairs from the 50's and old prints. And it continues around the corner at the Place des Artistes. Local heroes from the local art scene put their produce up for sale. Leave enough time for this Parisian diamond in the rough, as time flies when you're browsing in the sun.


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.

EAT in Paris

Eat in Paris

The crystal room in the Baccarat building is simply breathtaking and the waiting list is as long as the grandiose dining table from Phillipe Starck. The villa in which the restaurant is found belongs to a certain Madame de Noailles, who is close friends with Luis Bunuel and also a heiress of Marquis de Sade. The chandeliers are the only thing here to remind guests of yesteryear. Otherwise, modern designers such as Yves Savinel and Gilles Rozé have been allowed to take the restaurant design in new directions. The décor, which is composed mainly of mirrors and glass, provides a perfect playground for incidental light. However, this restaurant doesn't just rely on the laurels of the designers, but boasts a fantastic menu from the kitchen-god Guy Martin.

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.

Sur Mesure

She has designed carpets for W Hotels and developed graphic concepts for Lacoste. With the Sure Mesure, a restaurant in the Mandarin Oriental Paris is added to the portfolio of Norwegian Heidi Winge Ström.   Ström wraps the venue on Rue Saint-Honoré - according to Wallpaper*s Design Awards the best new restaurant in 2012 - in white textile walls, structured tablecloths and napkins and creates tableware which is referred to by Mandarin Oriental as high fashion jewel. The concept was provided by the designers Patrick Jouin and Sanjit Manku.   For the design on the plates, the restaurant sends Thierry Marx on the catwalk. The chef and Bruce Willis lookalike has been awarded multiple prizes and is devoted to experimental, Japanese cuisine. The result: soy risotto with black truffles or poached fig with Banyuls and ginger sorbet. Likewise some form of design.

STAY in Paris

Hotel Lumen

The ideal location in the 1st arrondissement is reserved for the finest hotels. All the more delightful, considering the Louvre is only a stone's throw away from this modern yet affordable hotel.   Behind the completely renovated Haussmann-façade of the Lumen lies stylish design and a cosy lounge bar with a remarkable restaurant. The Swiss designer placed great emphasis on the enticing lighting, which prominantly places the sophisticated furnishings in the scene. Let yourself be enchanted by the light of day and relax in the melancholic glow of the candles at night. Double rooms are available from 200 euros.

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.

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.

SIGHTS in Paris

Sights in Paris
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.

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!


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.
