After 8 years of renovation we wanted to go up the Grande Arche (elevator) again. You can see the historic axis very well and in the distance the Arc de Triomphe. To see more of the center of Paris from above, there are other, better viewpoints, the Arc de Triomphe, the Center Pompidou, the Tour Montparnasse or even the Tour Eiffel.

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.
