A unique vantage point providing a spectacular view of the fir tree and the famous art deco Dome at Galeries Lafayette Paris Haussmann. EVERY DAY Free of charge

The World's most wonderful Christmas tree

Every year, as the festive season draws near, a majestic Christmas tree appears beneath the stunning dome ceiling of Galeries Lafayette’s Paris Haussmann store – a long-held and much-loved tradition. This year, in the spirit of “A Christmas Voyage”, the tree is decked out in ornaments from around the world and tells the story of the final stage in Celeste’s exciting expedition. Bringing together a multitude of Christmas traditions, thousands of gifts hang from its snow-topped branches, reflecting the faraway lands visited on our fabulous journey, along with colourful pom poms and embroidered baubles. And dancing decoratively around the tree are glittering lanterns and Jules Védrines' plane. To top it all off, the dome lights go out every 30 minutes to reveal a spectacular sound and light show.

Christmas Window Displays

Enchanting and Magical

The window displays at Galeries Lafayette’s Paris Haussmann store offer a visual narrative of a voyage to enchanting, faraway lands. Each of the 11 scenes showcases a stage in Celeste’s fabulous journey around the world: a fairytale village full of polar bears, an enchanted forest, a mystical land of Arabian nights and a glittering festival of lights, with wonderful characters and magical creatures. The final scene shows Celeste back in Paris ready to celebrate Christmas with all her friends on the rooftop of the Galeries Lafayette store.
