On September 17th and 18th, in Paris.

This year, the 39th edition of the European Heritage Days will take place on September 17 and 18, 2022. The JEP consist in opening to the public places which are usually not very accessible. During two days, visitors can discover for free or at a preferential rate places of power, national emblematic monuments, castles, rural heritage, historic gardens, religious buildings or industrial sites for example. It was in 1984 that the Minister of Culture at the time, Jack Lang decided to launch this event for heritage.

The theme chosen for this 2022 edition is sustainable heritage. To highlight this heritage in a new light, a whole range of activities are organized: guided tours, demonstrations of know-how, concerts and musical walks, theatrical performances and themed tours.

"Look Up !"

Implemented by the French Ministry of Education, the objective of Operation Raise Your Eyes! is to make the school public discover its local heritage. Students will learn about the history and importance of its monuments in order to enhance and protect them.

It is the ideal opportunity for the general public to discover new places all over the French territory. The participating places include the City Hall of Paris, the pavilions of the Cité Universitaire Internationale, the Institut de France and many others! To find the list, please visit which will help you plan your cultural weekend.

If you own a heritage place, which contains a historical, artistic and architectural character? Then what about making it discoverable to the general public? You can find all the steps to follow to register on the website of the Ministry of Culture. You will also have a forum for questions as well as online help if you need it.

To fully enjoy these days full of history and culture, book your room at the Best Western Paris Porte de Versailles located only a few metro stations from Paris.
