"View from the top of the Galeries Lafayette" Galeries Lafayette Tip by Dabs
Galeries Lafayette, Paris: 20 reviews and 34 photos
Once upon a time the best department store free view was from the top of La Samarataine but as they have closed and do not appear to be reopening, the next best free view from on top of a department store is the terrasse level of the Galeries Lafayette near the Opera Garnier although I've also read Au Printemps has a good view from their 9th floor terrace. Next time....
We took the escalator up to the 7th floor, there is an enormous terrace with no charge where you can sit or stand and get a nice view over Paris. There is also a restaurant located on the terrace. The terrace is not open all year long, I believe one of the signs as we were going up the escalator said it opened sometime in May and closes sometime in September.
While you are there, on the ground level in the center of the building, there is a beautiful domed section in cosmetics.
