Christmas Beehive at Galeries Lafayette

Christmas Beehive at Galeries Lafayette
To celebrate Christmas 2019, Galeries Lafayette's flagship store in Paris is being transformed into a fantasy-filled beehive! Here, all that glitters is honey, the alcoves of the store are honeycombs and the famous art-deco dome has become a festive sky above the magnificent giant Christmas tree.

Christmas Window Displays

This holiday season, visitors to Galeries Lafayette will be enthralled by the 11 Christmas Beehive window scenes. The magical Christmas window displays (External link) include the Festival of Light, the Queen Bee’s Banquet and the Winter Garden. Inside each one, visitors can watch the busy bees getting everything ready for Christmas: the Queen Bee is making herself beautiful, the Scout Bees are taking care of the illuminations, while the Worker Bees are preparing food. It’s quite literally a hive of activity to ensure that the Christmas Beehive is ready in time!

Christmas Ice Rink

Visitors to Galeries Lafayette Paris Haussmann can enjoy a fabulous festive treat by taking a spin on the stunning 160 square-metre ice rink (External link) on the store’s rooftop terrace. Open every day from 9.30 am to 8.30 pm, the ice rink is free and suitable for people of all ages. It’s the perfect way to combine some wintery fun while enjoying the most dazzling view of Paris, stretching from Boulevard Haussmann lit up for Christmas to the glittering Eiffel Tower.

The glasswalk – a unique experience beneath the dome

Where’s the best place to admire the Christmas tree? Right here, from the Glasswalk (External link) , a nine-metre long glass walkway, suspended 16 metres high in mid-air, in the middle of the dome. This unique vantage point is open every day for a spectacular view of the tree during the holiday season. Go to the 3rd floor of the main store.
