Why you will love it?

After a long and tumultuous construction period, the Philharmonie de Paris finally opened its doors in January 2015. The new classical music concert hall, designed by world famous architect Jean Nouvel, is located in the Parc de la Villette to the north east of Paris. The Philharmonie is mainly a concert hall welcoming the most respected orchestras and classical artists, but is also used as an exhibition hall and a social area. Enjoy! Parisianist.

Our Insiders' Article

Philharmonie de Paris

Set in the heart of the Parc de la Villette, a modern area in the North East of Paris which is also home to the Cité des Sciences et de l’Industrie, the Philharmonie de Paris is the newest concert hall of the French capital. Designed by world famous French architect Jean Nouvel (Musée du Quai Branly, Fondation Cartier, Louvre Abu Dhabi, Guthrie Theater Minneapolis…), the Philharmonie de Paris was inaugurated in January 2015. Primarily a classical music hall, the building also hosts temporary exhibitions. With this new building in addition to the existing Cité de la Musique (Philharmonie 2), the National Music Conservatory and the Zenith concert hall, the Parc de la Villette area has become Paris’ heart of music.

Main Hall

The highlight of this architectural prowess is undeniably the Philharmonie’s main concert hall. This vast room has a capacity of 2,400 seats yet the distance between the orchestra conductor and the farthest spectator is only 32 meters (105 ft)! The balconies seem to be suspended in the air so that the spectators have the impression to be surrounded by music and light. Needless to say that everything has been done to offer perfect acoustics.

Exhibition hall

The exhibition hall is located on the ground floor of the Philharmonie de Paris and covers a total surface of 1,100 m² (11,840 sqft) and will be dedicated to temporary exhibitions generally related to the music world, but not just that. Exhibition highlights include David Bowie Is… (March to May 2015) and photographs by Korean artist Ahae (May to September 2015). The Philharmonie 2, the 20 year old building just next to the new “Philharmonie 1”, is home to the Music Museum, a permanent collection of instruments and objects related to music, as well as other temporary exhibitions.


The Philharmonie is a place of exchange and encounters and architect Jean Nouvel has pushed this concept to a new extent. The panoramic restaurant is open to the public and offers a great view on the Parc de la Villette. It is also possible to enjoy the view from the rooftop terrace. Part of the ground floor of the Philharmonie has been arranged to awaken the musical interest for the young with workshops and musical explorations.

Parisianist Warning: Although the Philharmonie is officially open, some parts of the building are still closed due to construction works. The panoramic restaurant and roof top terrace are currently not accessible.


In order to fully appreciate the beauty of the Philharmonie de Paris, it is best to buy a ticket and enjoy a wonderful performance. Because the building is not only a concert hall, some people have called it the “Centre Georges Pompidou of Music”, referring to the multi-purpose modern building located in the heart of Paris. But if you really do not like classical music, the best way to make it an interesting visit is to go to the Music Museum in the old building, and then grab something to eat in the new modern Philharmonie de Paris.
