Your White Night at the Platine Hotel
Published on 15 September 2018 in Events
Since 2002, the Parisian White Night has become an annual institution. The event's success is undoubtedly linked to its originality and its diversity. An innovative and thought-provoking experience, the White Night takes you on a series of exceptional journeys through the night of the first Saturday in October.
A White Night for all
Organised into four sections or constellations and with four routes covering very different districts of Paris, the White Night allows each participant to experience the event according to their personal tastes. The Ile Saint-Louis section, for example, concentrates on ancient sites such as the Collège des Bernardins and the Hôtel de Ville, while La Villette focuses on children with the opening of Little Villette and a sensational geyser of red clay that will fascinate every age group. Constellation des Invalides covers the city's great monuments connecting sites like the Army Museum, the Palace of Discovery and some of the Grand and Petit Palais before continuing along the Champs-Elysees. Finally, the “Porte Dorée” constellation will delight fans of contemporary dance with a unique performance that combines children and robots.
Prepare your White Night
To make the most of the White Night, book your stay over the weekend of October 6 and 7 in advance. The Platine Hotel is ideally located in the 15th arrondissement near the start of the Constellation des Invalides route. It is also close to the metro and RER stations, allowing you to easily reach the event's various sites. Don't hesitate to ask our team for information on night buses to help you plan your journey during this exceptional evening. And, after a thrilling night, you'll definitely be ready to enjoy the hotel's hearty gourmet breakfast.
The White Night is a contemporary art exhibition that talks to everyone and appeals to all ages. It's also a wonderful way to rediscover Paris or discover some of its lesser-known neighbourhoods. One you won't want to miss!
