For this Christmas 2018, the Boulevard Haussmann Committee, Haussmann Paris, is making Christmas lights back from November 29, 2018 and offers a unique experience.
Thanks to the mobile application #OnlyHaussmann, we could personalize the lights program for 1 to 3 minutes according to the crowd. With this app, each passerby can do it and choose the colors, effects and rhythm from 3 defined areas. This Christmas decoration is imagined in partnership with the Blachère Illumination Studio company working on the Champs-Elysées and about to use LED technology for a monitored electric use (which is the equivalent of the electric use needed to heat up a 11sqm bedroom for a year).
And on December weekends, 20 dressed-up characters will be present to help visitors: saying hellos and giving compliments, guide customers to their destinations... And the icing on the cake, on Saturdays and Sundays, from 12:30 p.m. to 8:30 p.m., Boulevard Haussmann and Rue de Caumartin turn into an open-air play stage for a very beautiful street show!
Every year, millions of tourists and Parisians come to visit Boulevard Haussmann, its department stores and its Opera, the perfect Parisian shopping destination. These lights complete Galeries Lafayette Windows and Printemps Windows for a lovely stroll in the French capital.
