Officially known as Paris Nord so as not to mix it up with the Porte de Versailles trade fair venue, the Parc des Expositions at Villepinte was created in 1981 and enlarged in 1999.
With its eight halls and a huge 200,000m² of space, it can be tiring just getting round it!
Main trade fairs include Maison et Objet, Premiere Vision, the SIAL and the Emballage packaging show. In a different genre, Japan Expo also draws large crowds.
Situated just one stop from Roissy airport - which now has its own mainline train station for high-speed travel to the rest of the country - the site is easy to travel to and from, and is increasingly used as a base for large businesses.
Beyond Stars. The Mystical Landscape from Monet to Kandinsky
At the Musée d'Orsay
The Musée d’Orsay presents “Beyond Stars. The Mystical Landscape from Monet to Kandinsky”, a new temporary exhibition that opens on March 14 and runs until June 25, 2017.
Organised by the Musée d’Orsay in partnership with the Art Gallery of Ontario in Toronto, the exhibition spotlights the aspect of mysticism in some of the most celebrated landscape paintings such as the Water Lilies (1907) by Claude Monet, The Starry Night over the Rhone (1888) by Vincent van Gogh, and Christ in the Garden of Olives (1889) by the famous painter Paul Gauguin.
“Beyond Stars. The Mystical Landscape from Monet to Kandinsky” is a must-see exhibition for those who are interested in discovering more about landscape painting, notably the late 19th century and early 20th century works.
Our Hotels Paris Champs Elysees are located at a short distance from the Musée d’Orsay.
