Les Halles, Paris

1.0
#32 of 54 in Neighborhoods in Paris
Neighborhood Tourist Spot
Les Halles was named for a large marketplace that was demolished in 1971 and replaced with an underground modern shopping area. Its labyrinthine underground alleys once sold fish, meat, and vegetables, and the fresh food market was the center of the city. You can now explore an open-air center area below street level, a sunken garden that contains sculptures, fountains, and mosaics. Beneath the shopping precinct lies the underground station Châtelet-Les-Halles, a central hub of Paris's express commuter rail system, the RER.

  • None of the other world. Typical shopping with a seat partially covered as a remarkable point, a couple of places to eat, and not much more. There are much more interesting places to do shopping in Paris

  • I booked an apartment on rue du pont neuf is the district in addition to its many shops and restaurants is oh so comfortable to move anywhere in the city, a few hundred metres from the most important to visit the station in addition to being a nice shopping center allows you to move around comfortably. Don't miss rue Saint honorè, road that cuts the Center filled with wonderful shops

  • The usual collection of teen and youth friendly shops and cafes. The main attraction, when I was melting, is that it is cool.  more »

Where to stay in Paris

Each of the city’s 20 arrondissements, or districts, has a personality all its own. If you prefer high-end accommodations and to be in the middle of the action, look for lodging in the 1st through the 4th arrondissements. For more affordable lodging and access to major metro lines, try the 12th. The Oberkampf area of the 11th arrondissement has an edgier, more hip vibe. For easy access to tourist sites,  the 16th is within a stone’s throw of the Arc de Triomph and the Eiffel Tower, and the 17th is within walking distance to the Champs-Elysées. Avoid the 18th, 19th, and 20th, because these can be dangerous, especially if you’re not familiar with the city.
