Something different than the normal viewpoints.

Very nice panoramic terrace with seating for relaxing. From there you also have a different view of the city and around it. In the building there is also a picture exhibition that you can look at. Can I recommend, if you do not always want to visit the tourist visited vantage points.

Wir wollten nach 8 Jahren Renovierung wieder ‚mal auf den Grande Arche fahren (Aufzug). Man sieht sehr schön die historische Achse und in der Ferne den Arc de Triomphe. Um eher das Zentrum von Paris von oben zu sehen, gibt es andere, bessere Aussichtspunkte, den Arc de Triomphe, das Centre Pompidou, den Tour Montparnasse oder auch den Tour Eiffel.
