Something different than the normal viewpoints.

Very nice panoramic terrace with seating for relaxing. From there you also have a different view of the city and around it. In the building there is also a picture exhibition that you can look at. Can I recommend, if you do not always want to visit the tourist visited vantage points.

A huge terrain up there! And almost nothing going on! A very nice photo exhibition at the time, a restaurant, a snack bar, a mini souvenir shop .... and a large terrace with tables and loungers that invite you to linger with a beautiful view over Paris
