Christmas decorations and illuminations in Paris


As the evening darkness descends, take a stroll down the Champs Elysées, the world's most beautiful avenue, and see it lit up in fuchsia by over a million tiny fairy lights.

In the windows of large department stores such as BHV (pictured), you'll find imaginative decadent displays.

And if ice skating is your thing, head to the square in front of the imposing Parisian town hall (the Hôtel de Ville) where you'll find a large open-air ice rink from the 18th of December onwards. The 1635m²  rink is open day or night with the elaborate Hôtel de Ville as a backdrop.
