Trip Report Nuit Blanche Paris 2015

Jump to last reply

The Nuit Blanche has ended again, since everybody knows by now that it is the first Saturday in October. What a lot of people do not know is that it is not at all the same thing as European Museum Night, which takes place in May. No, the museums are not open for the Nuit Blanche, but a few of them might be open if they are housing special artistic installations for the event.

Most of the things to see are outdoors in unusual places, purposely chosen to draw people to parts of the city that they would not normally visit. There is always something at the Hôtel de Ville to appease the mobility-challenged visitors, but the really good stuff is elsewhere. This year, popular consensus seems to have decided that the very best event was in the Parc Martin Luther King on the northern edge of Paris in the 17th arrondissement. The whole park was filled with blue waves of laser beams floating over the heads of the crowd.

I am disappointed every year by all of the things that I did not manage to see, but I made a report about a few things that I did see, and here it is: http://tinyurl.com/orvjo66

So many of you plan your trips a year ahead of time. Please add the Nuit Blanche to your musts, if you come in October!
