This year, the lights of the famous Avenue des Champs Elysées - located a few steps from the Champs Elysées Friedland hotel- will be inaugurated by the actress Diane Kruger and the Mayor of Paris Bertrand Delanoe on November 21.
For those who cannot wait for the illumination of the Champs Elysees, direction to the department stores -Galeries Lafayette and le Printemps- which are already celebrating this festive season in style with windows even more beautiful than last year.
