Overview

Enjoy a morning discovering Paris’ famous upmarket department store, Galeries Lafayette at the flagship Boulevard Haussman location. Meet your guide outside the famous Parisian store and get ready to learn about more than 120 years of fashion history in one of Paris’ most iconic buildings. Opened in 1894, you’ll see the changing years reflected in the building’s architecture: Haussmann, Art Nouveau, Art Deco, and the drugstore design of the 1960s, and the neo-byzantine dome taking pride of place in the heart of this unique property. Stroll the aisles of the store before ascending in the staff private elevators up to the terrace where Jules Védrines landed his plane in 1919, and to take in the panoramic views across Paris. Your guide will tell you more about the founders of Galeries Lafayette, the history of the double-walled dome, insider secrets about the hidden messages in the great hall, as well as the architecture and special lighting that set off a magical atmosphere. End the tour admiring the remains of the staircase designed by Louis Majorelle, inspired by that of the Opéra Garnier, before you’re free to experience one of the many cafes and restaurants in Galeries Lafayette or indulge in some retail therapy.
