"Hôtel de Ville" Hôtel de Ville- City Hall Tip by Pieter11
Hôtel de Ville- City Hall, Paris: 61 reviews and 116 photos
The Hotel de Ville is a nice building, between the Centre Pompidou and the Notre Dame. It´s built in the end of the 19th century to replace the old one. That one was burned to the ground during a riot, that also destroyed the Palace of de Jardins de Tuileries. The architects were men called Battu and Deperthes, that also made space for the 136 statues that are place in and attached to the walls.
The Hotel de Ville always is a centre of happenings in the city. In the summer there is a beach-volleyball court, at Christmas-time there is a huge decorated tree, and all winter long there is an ice-skating court. The Place de l´Hotel de Ville also was the place where the people of Paris heared the bad news about the Olympics of 2012. Not they, but London was given the Games.
