What to expect

Behind its facade, a listed Historic Monument, Le Printemps Haussmann has many hidden secrets!

From 1865, the year that it was founded by the young Jules Jaluzot, Le Printemps revolutionized fashion and elegance with three guiding principles: ‘new’, ‘fresh’ and ‘pretty’. A testimony to the technical innovations and aesthetic developments of the Second Empire, the building is striking in its architectural structure and in the modern comfort (lifts and electric lighting) that it offered at the time. Dive into 150 years of History on an offbeat tour of the labyrinths of this Parisian department store!

During this 10-stage itinerary, enjoy one of the finest views of the French capital then set off to discover the workshops, machinery and other curiosities of this temple of fashion including private access to the grand staircase, normally inaccessible to the public. And to finish, discover the behind-the-scenes of the majestic glass dome, a veritable Art Deco gem with an amazing history.
