Paris - the city of love! In March 2022 I spent a long weekend in the city of love and here are my tips for a perfect weekend in Paris. Shopping, culture, nightlife, no recommendation should be neglected here.
Breakfast with a view
Le Printemps Paris -
Breakfast on the roof terrace
In the department store La Printemps Haussmann you can not only go shopping, but also have breakfast with a breathtaking view.
I start my day here with a Café Ole and a salmon bagel and enjoy the view of Paris with my friends.
Then it goes through the different departments of the department store.
What I liked most was the food department on the upper floor and the unusual perfumes.
But those who are interested in special interior design or clothing will not miss out here either.
Incidentally, La Printemps is the perfect starting point for a walk from here across the Place Vendôme to the Tuileries Garden.
Address: 64 Boulevard Haussmann, 75009 Paris
Opening times: from 10am to 8pm
A WALK TO THE JARDIN DE TUILERIES
Musée de l'Orangerie
There are places in Paris that are a "must-do" for every new Parisian visit. These include the Eiffel Tower, but also the Jardin De Tuileries.
This is a great place to relax and enjoy a break from the hustle and bustle of the city.
If that's not enough for you, we recommend the Museum de l'Orangerie. What is there to see?
One of the most famous paintings in the world, namely Claude Monet's water lily paintings. Among other things.
Be sure to buy tickets online in advance.
ALWAYS WORTH WHATEVER THE SEASON
A boat trip on the Seine
A boat tour with one of the cruise ships on the Seine is always a wonderful experience.
The perspective of Paris from the water is unique and you can rediscover the city.
Especially beautiful at sunset, no matter what time of year.
Also an ideal break between sightseeing for tired legs.
A boat departs every full hour. Where? At the Pont de l'Alma, Rive droite.

Going OUT in Paris
Dinner in the restaurant
Rue de la Fidélité
At first glance, the guests at the Grand Amour are mostly female. The scene here is almost reminiscent of a blogger event.
In the hotel bar next door, things are different.
The food tastes excellent, the restaurant is fully reserved and there is always something to see.
After dinner, it's worth going to the hotel's bar, where a DJ plays and it feels like a club.
The restaurant was once a brothel and the area around the Grand Amor is more notorious than famous.
But that has changed in recent years.
POSSIBLY THE MOST BEAUTIFUL BAR IN PARIS
Bouillon Julien is also located near the Grand Amour restaurant.
A delicious brasserie and perhaps the loveliest restaurant in Paris.
In the evening the line in front of the restaurant is long. But not only the architecture of the Brasserie Julien is impressive, no, the food is excellent and even inexpensive.
The brasserie has existed since 1906 and was listed as a historical monument in 1997.
Recommended for lunch or in the evening as the restaurant is open until midnight.
No wonder the brasserie was the favorite haunt of many famous French people. Edith Piaf was a regular guest here.
Open daily from 12.00 p.m. to midnight.
Rue du Faubourg Saint-Denis
ONCE THE CAFÉ OF FAMOUS LITERATS
Café de Flore
How about breakfast at the famous Café de Flore?
The favorite place of many intellectuals, such as Simone de Beauvoir, Jean-Paul Satre, Alberto Giacometti, Pablo Picasso or Jean Cocteau.
Every year in November, the literary prize "Prix de Flore" is awarded here, founded by Frédéric Beigbeder and Carole Chrétiennot.
A café where Karl Lagerfeld also liked to linger. If you don't want to stand in line, you should definitely reserve a table.
THE PERFECT PLACE FOR LUNCH, EVEN FOR VEGETARIANS
The tables may be tiny and everyone is tightly packed, but the dishes are really healthy and tasty. The truffle fries are maybe just delicious.
The restaurant is a popular spot among Instagrammers, but not only the photogenic interior, but also the dishes are worth a visit.
Opening hours: daily from 07:00 a.m. to 2:00 a.m
rue de Buci
Charles Ray Exhibition
Bourse de Commerce - Francois Pinault
Entering the Bource de Commerce, the impressive architecture immediately catches your eye.
The architecture from five centuries of history is united here. The southern facade connects to what remains of Catherine de' Medici's palace.
With its round shape, it serves as a late 18th-century masterpiece inspired by antiquity.
There is also a connection to the present through the contemporary architectural gesture of Japanese architect Tadao Ando.
The Charles Ray exhibition is currently located here - absolutely worth seeing.
