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.

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.

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.

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.

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.
