Totally worth a visit to Hotel de Ville. We passed by it when we were heading to Notre Dame to find that the Hotel is a really nice piece of architecture.

We visited a day or two after the "beach" of Paris large had been cleared away but it was still fun to sit by the fountain and watch the street entertainers. There were musicians and someone blowing large bubbles for children and a man in a mask who was very funny.

A photographer's dream, both for the stunning architecture of Paris's town hall and the many and varied events which take place in the square during the year. Cultural and political events, demonstrations, dancers, musicians and other entertainers; and in the summer, some pretty good volleyball matches and (fairly average) basketball games. It seems like all of Paris walks through here... More

Worth the time. On the way to/from other attractions. It is better during the week ends since people seem to be going to farther places and there is less of a crowd.

Very nice aria to walk. The Hôtel de Ville, is the building housing the city's local administration. Standing on the place place de Grève in the 4th arrondissement, it has been the location of the municipality of Paris since 1357. It serves multiple functions, housing the local administration, the Mayor of Paris (since 1977), and also serves as a venue... More

If you are fan of music band or beach volleyball go there! Otherwise, I am afraid this beautiful place likely attract you. There are many beautiful monuments and buildings in Paris as fantastic as Hotel de Ville!

I have been here a number if times and there is always something going on to entertain. Summer brings out the beach volleyball and basketball courts, winter brings the ice skating and historical merry go round. Always great activity for children and the centre of plenty of other options nearby.

The Hotel de Ville was hosting a special exhibit on the 100th anniversary of the Armenian genocide. It was a fascinating display that was designed very well.

Staying in Le Marais

Neighborhood Profile
Le Marais
The Marais is a winding maze of multi-faceted streets that beg to be explored. It bursts with small boutiques, historic buildings, cozy traditional restaurants, and hidden parks. Around each corner, you'll come across little gems of architecture spanning the centuries, from understated medieval towers to classical libraries and 17th century splendor. This neighborhood unites a rich mix of people of all ages, but it's best known for the gay scene mostly in the south and the Jewish community around Rue des Rosiers.
