European Heritage Days 2018 at UNESCO

For the European Heritage Days 2018, UNESCO premises open! Meet on September 15 and 16 for a free visit of the legendary building that also holds many treasures.

European Heritage Days are always the occasion to have a look at exceptional places that are usually forbidden to the public… such as UNESCO!

UNESCO house, set in Paris 7th arrondissement opens its doors on September 15 and 16, 2018 from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. Here, no guided tour but a free discovery of this temple for the protection of cultural World Heritage.

This 35th edition of the European Heritage Days is the occasion to admire masterpieces displayed at UNESCO: masterworks by Picasso, Miro, Moore, Chilida and even Giacometti.

You will also have the chance to have a walk in the Japanese garden of UNESCO and discover all the details of its emblematic architecture.

By the way, food trucks will be available if you feel hungry… careful though, it’s only about gastronomies listed as UNESCO intangible cultural heritage! In other words, think Neapolitan pizza, traditional Mexican cuisine, treats from Malawi and French gastronomy!

To access the place, you better sign up on the dedicated website and please note security measures are very strict with a control system worthy of the biggest airports.
