Description

At the west of Paris, come and admire one of the most beautiful views of the capital at the top of a magnificent architectural monument. The Roof of the Grande Arche overlooks the business district of La Défense and welcomes you for an impressive discovery. The first thing visitors notice is the four glass lifts ready to take them 110 metres into the air to the 35th floor. Once up there, they walk out onto the expansive roof terrace and ultimately the panoramic Promenade bridge located high above the historical axis of Paris. Breathtaking views from the top!

An artistic and cultural experience: ‘L’Arche du Photojournalisme’ is an ultra-flexible and super-modern 1,200m² space dedicated to photojournalism, managed by Artistic Director Jean-François Leroy (founder of the ‘Visa pour l’image’ photojournalism festival).

A culinary experience: The 50-cover restaurant managed by chef Jean-Christian Dumonet offers a bistro-style menu that blends traditional French cuisine with sophisticated gastronomy. The restaurant can be reserved for private events. An EXCEPTIONAL restaurant for PRIVATE HIRE.

Photographic exhibitions: Four 3-month photographic exhibitions are presented each year under the artistic direction of Jean-François Leroy. The season will open on 15 June this year with “Too Young to Wed”, an exhibition by the American photographer Stephanie Sinclair condemning child marriage around the world.
