Hotel de Genève - Saint Lazare


See you on the Champs-Élysées for the new year!

Why don't you spend New Year's Eve in Paris? Better yet: why not celebrate the 2019 passage on the Champs-Élysées? What could be more glamorous than walking down the most beautiful avenue in Paris on New Year's Eve? Leave your luggage at the Hotel Genève and take advantage of free transport on 31 December to reach the Arc de Triomphe in 15 minutes.
It is now a tradition: on New Year's Eve, visitors and Parisians are invited to gather on the Champs-Élysées to celebrate the arrival of the New Year. It must be said that the most famous avenue of the capital is a bit of a must during these end-of-year celebrations.
Since the end of November, the Champs-Élysées have been adorned with their luminous attire. Every evening, it's time for the show! And to the novelty, since this year you discover a creation. Entitled "Flamboyance", it succeeds the illuminations presented since 2014. For once, the 400 trees on the avenue light up in red, while a shower of shooting stars sparkles.
But this is only a taste of what awaits you on December 31, 2018. From 11 p.m., quickly reach the foot of the Arc de Triomphe. To pay tribute to the end of 2018 and the arrival of 2019, a great sound and light show on the theme of fraternity is offered by the City of Paris. On the programme: music and projections on the monument, followed by a fireworks display.
The illuminations on the Champs-Élysées will be visible until 9 January 2019.
Metros, buses, trams and RER will be open from 31 December 2018, 5 p.m., to 1 January 2019, 12 noon, and a selection of metro lines will operate continuously throughout the night.
