Things to do in Paris during winter

Paris has many things to offer all year around but here are some tips on things to do in Paris in the greyer days of January and February.

For those of you who also like to shop, don’t miss the big sales, or soldes as they are called here.


The winter sales start in the beginning of January. This year it was on Wednesday the 8th. It lasts about a month and for those of you looking for a great deal I would recommend the “dernière demarque” at the end of the sales period.

If you prefer spending your time doing sports or something good for your well-being we suggest you go to the ice-rink they build on square de l’Hôtel de Ville (city hall). Great place to go ice-skating with friends and family. To create a nice atmosphere they play music to skate to. Enjoy:
