Come and spend a wonderful day with your family at Paris La Défense!
The summer vacations are coming to an end, and back-to-school is just around the corner... but there's still time to spend a great day out with the kids in the area. If you're short of inspiration, we've got the solutions! Here are a few good ideas to try out.
A morning outdoors
What better way to start the day than by taking your kids out to let off some steam? And what better place to do so than in Nanterre's Chemin de l'Ile park! 15 hectares to stroll, run and play in the park's various play areas. Enough to ensure a quiet evening with children who go to bed early, parents, you'll thank us!
A family picnic
At the end of the morning, continue your walk in the direction of La Défense and stop off at the Parc André Malraux for a family picnic in the shade of its tall trees. You can also sit facing the lake against the backdrop of the business district's towers, or enjoy the sun and nature!
A fun museum
Once you've arrived at La Défense, take your children back in time at the Cité de l'Histoire! A space sheltered from the heat, where you can relive the great moments of history in 17 rooms. You'll discover three different areas, including an immersive tour and a 360° video show on Victor Hugo.
After such a busy day, are your children still in need of some exercise? No problem: Paris La Défense has two climbing gyms perfect for a family afternoon of sport. Blocbuster and Hapik have different courses for all levels. It's 100% fun, and you might just discover your passion for climbing!
More than 200 stores
After a good dose of sport, a snack at the CNIT is a must! Whether you prefer cookies, glazed mochis, smoothies or donuts, we promise there's something for everyone!
And to round off this wonderful day, what could be better than a spot of shopping in Europe's largest shopping center, Westfield Les 4 Temps? From back-to-school shopping to makeovers, whatever your needs, you're bound to find what you're looking for, and it's open until 8:30pm!
And if you don't want to cross the forecourt in the heat, you can use the underground transport hub to get from one shopping center to the other!
The little extra at Westfield Les 4 Temps? On the 2nd floor, you'll find a merry-go-round for children to enjoy between toy stores.
