Published on 5 October 2018, dans Visit Paris
This year, why not spend Halloween in Paris and enjoy the fun and thrills the city offers during this scariest of celebrations? The city is full of little secrets and macabre history that is perfect for producing tingling spines and delicious goosebumps. On the terror trail are the Catacombs, a museum of vampires and other monsters of the imagination and the Manoir de Paris. Brrrrr!
The Catacombs; welcome to the bowels of Paris
A labyrinth of corridors and secret rooms under the city, the Catacombs have long been a place of creepy fascination. Today you can visit and explore the mysterious galleries of this ancient quarry that once supplied the rock used to build the city. Don’t be surprised if you come across stacks of skulls and other skeletal remains as the Catacombs are also an ossuary housing the former occupants of an entire Parisian cemetery...
Vampire Museum; stakes in the hearts of legends
The Museum of Vampires and Monsters of the Imagination plunges you into the midst of humanity’s most terrifying nightmares. Here you’ll find the strangest and spookiest of artefacts telling the tales of weird creatures through the ages. Immerse yourself in the sinister night lands populated by spectres and witches, bizarre rituals and mysteries never revealed.
The Manoir de Paris; your worst fears in one place
Finally, Halloween would not be the same without a tour of the Manoir de Paris, an interactive walk-through haunted house where the horrors of Parisian history are recreated by professional actors who bring these grisly tales vividly to life. After experiencing all that terror, you’ll be absolutely delighted to return to the softness and comfort of your room at the Grand Hotel Saint Michel.
