Christmas in Paris 2013 ; the time is fast approaching. You can feel it in the air; a certain tingle that is not just caused by the onset of the Winter chill. Christmas is almost upon us and there are plans to be made as we await the magic. For a truly special festive treat your plans should include Paris, the city where the celebration of Christmas approaches an art form. Stay with us here at the Hotel du Danube. You will be made warmly welcome in what is an ideal location for experiencing the joys of a Joyeux Noel in the City of Light.

Christmas in Paris 2013 for all the family

Whether you wish to visit Paris to complete your Christmas shopping, enjoy an idyllic and romantic break with the special one in your life or partake of the plentiful family fun which the capital can offer, you will certainly find what you are looking for. World famous streets such as the Champs Elysees are decorated with lights until they resemble a shimmering, twinkling Utopia. Fabulous department stores such as Printemps and Galeries Lafayette are festooned with decorations and their window displays come alive with animation and colour.

Christmas markets spring up in key locations throughout the city, offering all manner of seasonal treats to tempt the shopper. Free merry go rounds are sprinkled about Paris like fairy dust, and you can ride the Big Wheel sixty metres into the sky above the city and look down on its breathtaking illuminated displays. In front of the city hall a 1,635 square metre open air ice skating rink is provided for your pleasure. In the lovely churches throughout the city Nativity scenes are created to touch your heart with their peace and beauty. On the plaza by Notre Dame Cathedral stands a large, beautiful tree decorated with painstaking care. All this and more can be yours to enjoy.
