Why visit the roof of the Grande Arche de la Défense?

The Grand Arche is a remarkable creation. When you first step onto the forecourt, you will be struck by the scale and boldness of the monument, building excitement even before you make your ascent. When you board the lifts, prepare for an unforgettable experience, and as you emerge onto the roof, you'll instantly understand what makes views from the Grand Arche unique. The promenade bridge has been aligned with the length of the Champs-Elysées, providing 1000m² of outdoor space in the sky, where visitors can soak up unrivalled vistas of Greater Paris. Look around and you'll enjoy extraordinary views of the Arc de Triomphe, the Eiffel Tower, the Montparnasse Tower and the Obelisk at Place de la Concorde - along with dozens of other monuments which make up the City of Light.

The Grand Arche also houses a 1,200m² cultural space, which is dedicated to photojournalism and regularly holds temporary exhibitions. So what is holding you back?

Concernant la visite sur le site
June 3rd 2018
Concernant la commande des billets, rien à dire. C'est sur place, lorsque j'ai présenté mes bons d'échange à la billetterie que cela s'est corsé. Ils se sont demandé sur quel site j'avais commandé et ils semblaient ne pas vouloir accepter mes papiers. Après maintes hésitations, ils m'ont demandé de leur fournir les tickets sur smartphone! C'est à ce moment que j'ai haussé le ton en expliquant que ce que j'avais dans les mains étaient des billets valables et que l'emploi du smartphone n'est pas obligatoire, surtout pour nous qui sommes des plus de 70 ans! Ils n'ont plus rien dit et nous ont laissé passer. Il faut faire comprendre au personnel que les nouvelles technologies ne sont pas encore totalement maitrisées par le commun des mortels. Merci pour votre compréhension. La visite de la Grande Arche a été très appréciée par tous les membres du groupe.
