Boulevard Haussmann, the French capital’s iconic shopping street, always lights up for the holiday season. But this year, for the very first time, the general public gets to choose the colours, effects and speed of the lights using the #ONLYHAUSSMANN app, available from the App Store and Google Play. Get your creative juices flowing on Boulevard Haussmann from 5.30pm on any evening from 29 November 2018 to 7 January 2019. Test out colours and patterns via your smartphone, then share the results on social media!

New in 2018: the ‘Haussmann Gang’ will liven up the area at the weekend from 1 to 23 December. Twenty-odd characters in fancy dress will add festive cheer along the boulevard, offer guidance to visitors and put on street theatre shows.

Boulevard Haussmann

Boulevard Haussmann is one of the most elegant in Paris. It stretches more than 2 kilometers from the Avenue de Friedland (near the Champs-Elysées) to the Boulevard Montmartre (close to the Grévin museum) and crosses several districts of the 8th and 9th arrondissements. The most dynamic part begins on Place Saint-Augustin and its imposing church and ends at the department stores of Printemps and Galeries Lafayette, passing by the Opéra Garnier. The activity is intense and bankers, shoppers or moviegoers and tourists constantly meet. On the quieter side of the boulevard, at number 158, is the Jacquemart-André museum, dedicated to the fine arts and decorative arts, planning large-scale exhibitions all year long. It is also while strolling on this artery that we can admire the most beautiful Haussmannian facades of Paris as well as many remarkable buildings.
