Grande Arche of Defense Ticket

At the top of the great Arc de la Défense, you'll discover the largest terrace in Paris. A 100-metre-long walkway crosses the building.

From there, you can see the great monuments that have forged the identity of Paris: from the Louvre to the Arc de Triomphe and the Eiffel Tower. You'll also see the largest open-air museum in France, with 69 monumental pieces displayed on the esplanade of La Défense, including Calder's Stabile and Caesar's Thumb.

As soon as you arrive at the arch, you'll find the impressive white marble staircase, where, in fine weather, hundreds of people gather in search of a moment of relaxation.

After climbing the steps, you'll enjoy a spectacular ascent and a breathtaking view of Paris. Thanks to the Arc's panoramic lifts, you'll enjoy a breathtaking view at the top and a unique experience: you'll ascend to a height of more than 100 metres!

Temporary Exhibitions

From January 7 2023 you'll be able to enjoy the exhibition Notre Dame, Versailles, La Cité des 4000 in which you'll see snapshots taken by the photographer Jean Gabriel Barthélémy. In the exhibition, you'll see the traces left by time and the hand of man in three of the most important places in Paris.
