Le Grand Palais des Glaces is back this winter 2019-2020. Indeed, for the 5th time, the Grand Palais sets up in its nave France’s biggest ice-skating rink. No fewer than 2.700-sqm ice-skating rink are available to make you skate in a magical place. Novice or professional, you can all come and enjoy this incredible rink and its light sets, the whole while enjoying music!
A wonderful surprise since this event is usually happening every 2 years and returns one last tie before the Grand Palais closes for renovations.

Born out of an original idea of Oliver Maurey – founder of the Groupe Ludéric – the first edition was held in 2012 and met a very big success with circa 300,000 people who came to discover this event as exceptional as unexpected. The success is coming back now every two years for our greatest pleasure.
Skilled athletes as well as families and visitors will throw themselves into this huge 3000-sqm space. Kids even enjoy an area especially fitted for them and entirely secured and supervised. Two time slots are available during the day: 10 a.m. to 1 p.m. (€17 for adults and €12 for kids) or 2 p.m. to 7 p.m. (€25 for adults and €12 for kids).
At nighttime, welcome the giant dance floor parties. At nightfall, the ice-skating rink puts on a show: it’s the festive event of the Champs-Elysées. The rink turns into a giant dancefloor to skate for the night along with a DJ set, shine under the disco balls and dance at the pace of light shows…
Not only can you give free rein to your skating skills, but friendly areas will also be fitted all around the ice-skating rink, allowing you to enjoy shows and entertainments provided within the Grand Palais des Glaces. During the previous edition, for instance, we discovered superb benches decorated by street-artists.
In 2019, the Grand Palais des Glaces takes us to a polar atmosphere with a monumental sculpture by Richard Orlinksi. A 7-m tall sculpture set in the center of the ice-skating rink, the “Standing Wild Bear”.
“The art at the heart of the holiday season magic… It’s a true honor for me to exhibit at the Grand Palais, on the occasion of the return of the world’s biggest ice-skating rink! I’m delighted to see one of my works, a 7-m tall white bear, find its spot in this magical universe delighting children and adults” Richard Orlinski says.
The Grand Palais des Glaces also provided a food offering all day long. Last year, it’s Café Jules that offered to feed you: gourmet hot dogs French’s style, waffles, crepes and hot chocolate fountains expected you.
In other words, everything you need to spend good and magical moments in Paris for Christmas for a unique experience!
