Are you one of these modern-time explorers eager to discover Paris every secret? Well, here’s something likely to delight the adventurer in you. For the first time, Printemps Haussmann goes au naturel and takes you behind the scenes with guided tours hosted by Cultival, starting from February 2, 2019. Tours are available in French and in English.
Buckle up because you’re going to travel through time to the very heart of one of Paris historic department stores! All along the tour, you can explore this temple of fashion from top to bottom by visiting areas usually closed to the public.
We must say that this department store built in 1865 has helped to change the French capital. So, obviously, we know that behind its Art Déco façade classified as Historical Monuments, Printemps Haussmann has a lot in store.
Roaming around a maze of underground tunnels, you go meet operators, carpenters and electricians helping to make this historic address live. If you have a strong stomach, you can venture into a balustrade of the roof and you can infiltrate the double skin to go backstage Printemps Art Déco Cupola that keeps on marveling people.
So, ready for an adventure?
