Hotel de Ville de Paris, a magnificent Renaissance style building and the headquarters of the city hall of Paris
Located in the Marais district, the Hotel de Ville of Paris is a beautiful Renaissance building and the headquarters of the city hall of Paris.
Burned by the Paris commune in 1871, the Hotel de Ville of Paris was then rebuilt between 1874 and 1882 to the plans of architects Theodore Ballu and Edouard Deperthes. The neo renaissance style facade of the Hotel de Ville of Paris is largely inspired from the one that disappeared.
Must-see: the Protocol Service organizes from Monday to Friday free guided tours, depending on their availability. The tours give visitors the opportunity to discover everything from the grand hall, to the provost-marshal room and the Mayor’s office. The Hotel de Ville of Paris regularly hosts free temporary exhibitions on the theme of the capital.
