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.

Stay

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.

Jardin Luxembourg
In this park you can almost forget you are in the city. Maria die Medici founded the park as she retreated to her country manor following the death of her husband, Heinrich IV, in 1611. Today, it is just as loved by tourists as it is by the Parisians. The public here are very peaceful and take pleasure in the many forms of recreation here; tennis courts, carousels, puppet theaters, chess boards and pétanque pitches.   For children and children at heart, the highlight of the park is the lake, where small paddleboats are available for rent. Paris is so romantic, especially here. It's as romantic as it was in the old days, and almost as peaceful, too.

Le Chocolat
At Le Chocolat Alain Ducasse in Paris you can dive into a world of chocolate. Wholeheartedly. Cocoa beans from all over the world - from Peru to Vietnam - are transformed by Nicolas Berger, chef confectioner at Alain Ducasse's worldwide gourmet empire on Rue de la Roquette, into chocolate truffles, bars or ganache.   For his restaurants Ducasse wanted his own chocolate line, beyond industrially produced chocolate masses. That's how the manufacture came into existence, where he serves as the artistic mastermind of taste. Berger provides for the sweet fine-tuning. In a former bank branch behind thick steel doors Berger experiments with an old coffee bean roaster. Not only the equipment is ancient which was specially made for the manufacture, also the interior of the chocolaterie has an antique touch. Both Berger and Ducasse are vintage fans. At Le Chocolat they fulfil their chocolatey promise of felicity - at 100 per cent.

La Famille
You can't help but suspect that it's impossible to find a restaurant smaller than this on in Paris. More than 30 guests couldn't dine here, at least, not at the same time. It brings truth to the name and creates a very cosy atmosphere. As long as it doesn't distub you that private discussion might have to be saved for another night. We find that it's actually beneficial to be able to clearly see your neighbour's plate. That way you can get a good idea of what interesting creations are on offer, without having to order everything on the menu. How does the ocean perch in chocolate sauce look? 3 courses for ?35 is not to be missed. So put together your own set menu from a range of four entrées, four main meals and four desserts.
