Comfortable accommodation during Heritage Days
In Paris, as everywhere in France and throughout Europe, the Journées du Patrimoine (Heritage Days) will open the doors of a wealth of fascinating locations on September 19th and 20th, to the delight of a public eager for architectural discoveries, hidden treasures and unusual places.
Future-oriented Heritage Days 2020
Heritage and Education, Learning for Life... a subject as vast as it is promising, is the theme of the 37th European Heritage Days and will pique the curiosity of inquiring minds of all ages. On September 18th, an additional day will be added to the event for the second time. Entitled Raise your Eyes, it invites children from kindergarten through to high school to step out of class accompanied by their teachers and admire the cultural riches all around them.
En route to a fascinating treasure hunt
While this year's agenda offers, as usual, free visits to museums, monuments and châteaux, it has many other surprises in store for you. From the Mouffetard puppet theatre to the fairground arts museum, from a ride on the Renault barge in Boulogne-Billancourt to the Hotel Drouot auction house presenting a surprising treasure hunt, young and old alike will find plenty to interest them. Take the opportunity to go behind the scenes of the Gare du Nord and Gare de l’Est railway stations and, if you still have some energy left, why not shoot a few baskets at the YMCA Union, the oldest surviving basketball court in the world?
The Hotel d’Angleterre; your ideal base
Conveniently situated in the heart of the legendary and picturesque Saint-Germain-des-Prés district, the Hotel d'Angleterre offers the ideal starting point for your Heritage Days adventures. You can easily walk from here to the impressive Saint-Sulpice Church, the Eugène Delacroix Museum, the greenhouses of the Jardin du Luxembourg, and the Palais de l'Institut de France and its famous dome.
