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.

Wanderlust
Exhibitions and performances, yoga lessons during the weekend, vintage design flea markets, open air film nights, wild parties and dinner on the biggest terrace in the whole of Paris (1,600 square metres!) - life is becoming more vibrant on the left bank of the Seine in Paris since the end of March 2012 in a new creative space. It's called Wanderlust and meeting point for artists and creative heads, designed by architectural team Jakob + MacFarlane - with French cook Benajmin Darnau's cuisine.   Wanderlust is part of the Docks en Seine - Cité de la Mode et du Design. The design and fashion district between Gare d'Austerlitz and the library François Mitterand, also designed by Jakob + MacFarlane and likewise coloured in green and white, unites Wanderlust with boutiques, pop-up and design shops. Since 2008 the former industrial grounds are also home to the Institut Français de la Mode.

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.

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.

Stay

Stay in Paris
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.
