Discover the Seine in Wintertime

Cruises, exhibits, open-air cafés, shows, lunches, and dinners on the water - with family, friends, or loved ones, during the weekend or after work, take advantage of the many wintertime activities available through Seine river companies.

The reorganization of the riverbanks of Paris allowed the Rive Droite to develop riverside leisure activities. Two new locations opened in recent years: the terrace of the Nautes, and the Batostar. Of course, there's also the Rive Gauche riverbanks and the Port d'Austerlitz!
