A place of celebration and magic


During the end-of-year holidays, from Sunday, December 16, 2018 to Wednesday, January 9, 2019, the Grand Palais welcomes in Paris the largest ice rink in the world *:

The Great Hall of Ice, for its 4th edition.

From 10:00 to 13:00 and from 14:00 to 19:00, a unique experience !

Under the glass roof of the Grand Palais, we will skate in the light of day. In the evening, the atmosphere is lit up with a thousand lights.

An incredible and spectacular playground of 3000 m2 that will delight young and old, and will provide unforgettable memories.

Jumps, pirouettes, worn, spirals, axels and double-flips on the program: end-of-the-year sports, fun and fairy-tale parties with the family.

Throughout the day, atmospheres completely frosted to skate according to his desires!

From 20:00 until 02:00, the ice rink becomes a giant and magic dance floor !

At night, the ice rink makes its show: it is the festive rendez-vous of the Champs-Elysées.

In the evening, the track turns into a giant dance floor to slide a part of the night to the sound of a DJ, shine under the mirror balls and dance to the rhythm of light shows …

Young skaters will be partying too

A space dedicated to children, fully secure and supervised, to discover the smooth skating. They will be able to make their first exploits on skates under the benevolent look of their elders.

Moreover, every weekend, the association “Read and make read” will tell the smallest Christmas tales. The children will be gathered on the famous “two-seater books”, benches customized by artists on the theme of works of authors. Saturdays and Sundays from 11:00 to 13:00. Everyone will leave … stars in their eyes!

Polar atmosphere with a monumental sculpture by Richard Orlinski

A bear 7 meters high will be enthroned in the center of the rink!

Impressive, disproportionate and powerful, he will look with tenderness at the skaters. This giant “Standing Wild Bear”, colossal work, will sublimate the ice.

“Art at the heart of the magic of the holidays … It is an honor for me to exhibit at the Grand Palais on the occasion of the return of the largest ice rink in the world! I am very happy to see one of my works, a 7 meter tall white bear, find its place in this magical world that delights young and old alike. “ Richard Orlinski

Gourmet atmosphere at any time

The Café Jules settles in the Grand Palais des Glaces.

Hot dogs “French” will be offered throughout the day for a delicious break between two slides.

À la carte, several varieties including the Jules de Noël, created especially for the event. To be enjoyed too: waffles, pancakes and hot chocolate fountains.
