Forum des Halles

The facelift is now complete, the Forum des Halles renovation is now finished and this is a must stop for shopping. What’s more, it’s surrounded by all the funky and offbeat boutiques and cafés that make Les Halles a magnet for the youth crowd. The shops both indoors and outdoors are all open now for business.

And while it’s gotten some criticism for letting in the rain, the sweeping exterior roof lends a graceful accent to this iconic Les Halles landscape. Inside you’ll find 180 shops and retail outlets on five levels descending downward. The Espace Créateurs at level -1 showcases young, talented designers. Otherwise there’s : Zara, Muji, Petit Bateau, Sephora, Esprit and more. This indoor mall also has movie theaters and direct access to the Metro and RER lines. And there’s even an indoor swimming pool.
