Why take this tour?

The tour of Printemps Haussmann takes you on a journey behind the facade, which is listed as an Historic Monument, and through the history of a building which is one of the most striking examples of the technical and aesthetic changes that have transformed Paris since the Second Empire. Your guide will open the doors of many areas that are closed to the public, from the terrace on the roof of the store to the labyrinthine galleries that still house all the equipment and infrastructures and that enable the department store to operate today. You will meet the electricians, carpenters and operators who work every day in the basements of Printemps. For the first time, visitors will be able to venture into the "double shell" and discover the inside of the monumental dome that crowns the building.

About operator:

Who has never dreamt of being locked up in the Palais Garnier, just like the Phantom of the Opera? Of entering behind the scenes of the Eiffel Tower? Live culture differently, this is Cultival’s credo. Cultival offers not only show tickets, but also tours of Parisian monuments and backstage tours.
