Hotel de Ville was built in the 16th century but had to be rebuilt in the second half of the 19th century following fire damage. It is a splendid building and quite ostentatious. It is very beautiful and it is worth spending part of your day on a visit here. It is also the seat of the Paris city government.

We've been to much here, a reception and lots of art expos. This massive and impressive building was torched during the Commune uprising 1870, but was quickly rebuilt is sort of the same style. Now it's administrative, but pay attention to notices for art and history exhibits because they are excellent and free.

During the Christmas season, there is a Christmas Village and lots of lights and trees which makes this a lovely venue to stroll.

I came out of the Hotel De Ville stop to get to Notre Dame Cathedral. It looked like the train station is connected to the building but it was all closed off when I was there so I ended up outside instead. I was on the back end of the building and was fascinated with the architecture. As I moved towards the front of the building towards the bridge to Note Dame, I noticed a statue on horseback on the side of the building. As I neared the bridge I noticed that there was a festival of some sort in the front area of the hotel. It looked like a winter festivalwith free rides for kids. It was New Year so it could also have been related to that. Apart from rides there were a few stalls for food and shops of items. There were also a few photo areas. The building looks quite amazing from afar and does look nice closer up when you are able to see some of the intricate details. I was able to get close to the building but not inside since it looked like it was closed. The colourful lighting around the area made it quite festive and interesting. It was an unexpected but really enjoyable find.
