Buttes Chaumont Open on the 1st of May
28 Apr

What to do on the 1st of May in Paris?

As the 1st of May is coming, everyone is looking forward to relaxing and celebrating the work by not working! And to make your life easier and to avoid you being in front of a closed door when Monday, you decide to visit Luxembourg Museum or to make shopping at Lafayette Galleries, we have prepared a small list of places open. Good idea, is not it?

Department stores such as Printemps Haussmann, BHV or the Bon Marché will be closed. The Carrousel du Louvre will be open from 10:00 am to 8:00 pm. Of course, as the museum remains closed, some shops will also be closed.

On a museum side, Paris will not be at half-mast since some will open their doors to people thirsty for culture. The Art Ludique Museum and its exhibition about superheroes, perfect to escape from reality on May 1st, the Jacquemart-André Museum with “From Zurbaran to Rothko”, or the already famous Grand Musée du Parfum. For the little ones, the Musée en Herbe will also be open, the Aquarium of Paris and the Menagerie of the Jardin des Plantes too.

art ludique museumIf weather is nice, a trip to one of the many gardens of the City can be a very good idea. The opportunity to air body and mind … After all, is it not the interest of such a day ?! Thus, we quoted it previously, the Jardin des Plantes and its large greenhouses, or the Parc Monceau and its wide golden doors, or the Parc Montsouris and its student looks could receive your vote. Unless the Park of Buttes Chaumont, and its relief, retains your attention …

To get high, we inform you that the Eiffel Tower never takes a break and will welcome the public until 10:00 pm. And if you want to pay tribute to our cultural heritage and our history, you can pass the doors of Chateau de Vaux-le-Vicomte or Chateau de Chantilly. The life of a castle can be particularly relaxing.

And of course, on the 1st of May, Welcome Hotel is open too !! Enjoy Paris and see you soon in Saint-Germain-des-Prés.
