Hôtel de Ville

Local nameHôtel de Ville
Location4th arrondissement of Paris, France

This exquisite neo-renaissance building no longer serves as a city hall, it is still an administrative centre though. Many foreign guests visit it during various events and various free exhibitions are displayed here throughout the year.

The roots of its existence go back to the 14th century. In the 16th century, the building you can see and visit today was built but it did not look the way it does till the 19th century when it was widely reconstructed.

Hotel de Ville is a historically important place, as it was here where the French Third Republic was announced, and also where Charles de Gaulle made a famous speech on 25 August 1944 during the Liberation of Paris.

You can get here by metro, lines 1 and 11, station Hotel de Ville.
