The new concert hall of Paris may seem very peculiar to many people, but this hall was built mainly for the best acoustic possible. Everything is asymmetrical and there are interesting objects lying around, the hanging balconies are very strange, but the result is exceptionally...More

What a beautiful music venue in La Villete, Paris... Amazing Concert Hall with fantastic acoustics, and state of the art sound reinforcement. Makes many similar venues in the UK pale into insignificance. Well worth a visit!

There's much info about this place on the web, but a personal exploration is needed to grasp and appreciate it. Allow extra time to visit the adjacent music museum with its fabulous exhibits. Go in daylight to get a full grasp of the building's skin...More

The material and design of the walls is different from everything that I have seen in Paris. I didn't watch any presentation, but I think the visit is worthy for adults and children.

Still some finishing work to be done but a beautiful first look. Sure, the elevators were wonky. People couldnt find the stairs. Bathrooms ill equipped, but the actual concert hall is gorgeous!

This is a fantastic modern venue, and my sense is that from any seat in each section you will have a great view. The acoustics are really something special.

In our brief weekend in Paris we were keen to see as much as possible so booked concert tickets in advance. This venue is striking from the exterior but with a truly stunning interior. Every seat, with rows arranged in waves around the stage, affords...More

La Villette
This futuristic landscape has come to define the
northeast of Paris. The Saint-Denis canal is framed
with luscious lawns and metallic buildings over a
wide-open space. Home to Europe's largest science
museum, this area rewards daytime and nighttime
explorations; there are three concert spaces, plus
cinemas and bars, and even open-air cinema in the
summer. The surrounding homes are a sharp contrast to
