Cité des Sciences/ La Villette Apartments

A district where industry, art, and science come together

A very busy area on the weekends, it offers a range of activities to share with family, friends, or as a couple. The La Villette district, which lies to the northeast of Paris, was created as part of a major project to replace the capital's former slaughterhouses in the 1970s. As a modern place of discovery and fun for families, gigantic recreation facilities now dominate.

A fun district for young and old

Year round, events punctuate the seasons: exhibitions, outdoor movies, theater, dance, circus shows, summer performances, workshops, etc. Opposite the Cité de la Musique, the Fontaine aux Lions de Nubie is one of the few remains of the slaughterhouse era in Paris, together with the Rotonde de la Villette and the Grande Halle. A former watering place, the fountain is now enjoyed by visitors who come to cool down on hot summer days. Next door, the huge Cité des Sciences et de l'Industrie invites the public to discover scientific and terrestrial phenomena. The Géode and the Cinaxe complex will not disappoint.

A district to breath and party

A vast park dedicated to recreation Parc de la Villette is the largest green space in Paris. It offers fascinating and interesting walks where contemporary works intermingle with Mother Nature. The Jardin des Ombres, the Jardin des Équilibres, the Jardin des Miroirs, the Jardin des Frayeurs Enfantines and the Jardin des Îles, and more.
In the evenings, crowds gather in front of the Zénith de Paris for concerts which has welcomed the world's biggest stars: Serge Gainsbourg, Oasis, The Cure, and, more recently, The Black Eyed Peas and more.
