A great bargain for curious people looking for wonderful discoveries and for passionate people. Needless to say, European Heritage Days win all votes: from fashion houses to main institutions, to the craziest architectures and historic places, they have it all! And among the greatest spots of this new edition there is… the Bourse de Commerce.

This iconic building in the Halles area was built in 1767. It first used to be a wheat hall, then, because of a fire in 1845, the building was converted to become the Stock Exchange and housed the Chamber of Commerce and Industry of Paris. It was inaugurated as such on September 24, 1889, during the World’s Fair – that was the same year as the Eiffel Tower’s inauguration. Listed as Historic Monuments, the Bourse de Commerce is now a place of exhibition and displays masterpieces from the François Pinault collection. As a reference to its past, a restaurant expects you just below the cupola: the Halle aux Grains.

On the menu of European Heritage Days 2022 at Paris Bourse de Commerce, a free tour to conquer the secrets of its impressive architecture. Lecturers will be there to help you satisfy your curiosity. And do not forget to give a go to the Auditorium to discover screenings about the huge renovations this rebirth involved. Careful though, tours are provided upon reservation! They open on September 1, 2022, at this link.
