Paris Hotel La Défense

History of La Défense


La Defense, whose lines can be followed to the Arc de Triomphe, along the Champs-Élysées to the obelisk on Place de la Concorde, over the Tuileries Garden to the Louvre's Cour Carrée, assuming that the weather is clear and the air free of polluting.
This new business district is in the form of a group of towers more than 30 stories high, which can be seen from several miles away. A kiosk on the ground floor provides information on each of these La Defense's ultra-modern architectural gems. From every last tiny detail, the designers have paid attention to the decoration of the surfaces, and have not ignored modern artists either. Sculptures, mosaics and fountains will keep your eyes busy and break up the monotony.


This business district is like a futuristic universe where form and content meet in beauty: Active and lively during the day, deathly silent at night. There aren't just office buildings, but a variety of things to see. Besides the different international trade fairs, exhibitions, concerts or theatrical performances that take place in the CNIT or on the roof of the Arche, you can find a wide variety of restaurants, stores, and outdoor shows. Moreover, on June 21st, the official Holiday of Music "Fête de la Musique", La Défense hosts a great music festival that includes all sorts of side shows using light and water.


La Grande Arche de la Défense


Six kilometers out from the Arc de Triomphe at the far end of the Voie Triomphale, La Défense is high on the list of places to see when visiting Paris. Created by a Danish architect, Johan-Otto von Spreckelson who won a competition on the initiative of President Mitterrand, this hollowed-out cube, weighing 300,000 tons, 110 m (352 ft) high and 70 meters (225 ft) wide (The whole of Notre-Dame Cathedral would fit in its frame), was entitled "La Grande Arche". This monument, dedicated to Fraternity, is built out of concrete and is faced with Carrara marble and grey granite. On the esplanade are works by Takis, fountains, luminous signals and statues by Mirò. Various ministries have their offices in the massive supporting pillars, the human rights commission (Fondation des Droits de l'Homme) and major corporations have their office there. The Grande Arche also includes a large exhibition hall.

Seated above, on the terrace, one can admire the impeccable success of its perspective, whose lines can be followed to the Arc de Triomphe, along the Champs-Élysées to the obelisk on Place de la Concorde, over the Tuileries Garden to the Louvre's Cour Carrée, assuming that the weather is clear and the air free from pollution.
