For Christmas this year, the Grand Palais is hosting an ice skating rink in its spectacular glass-roofed central hall. 1,800 square metres in size, it’s the largest rink ever created in France. There’ll be activities plenty to fill the space, including Nocturne events every night from 9pm to 2am, with DJs and light shows. Need a breather? Dedicated spaces around the rink allow for a comfortable après-ski – vin chaud optional. Price: €12 for children, free for under-3s (including skate rental), €15 for adults and €25 for Nocturne events (including skate rental).
