Nature/Leisurely walks : + Culture : + Shopping : +

The 11th is not a very well-known arrondissement, apart from the famous Place de la Bastille. But if you are a little curious you will find very pleasant streets with a special atmosphere in this neighbourhood.

As with the Bastille neighbourhood, the Rues de Charonne and d'Oberkampf will charm lovers of rock music, motorbikes and leather jackets. You can, however, stop at one of these numerous rock bars without any danger.

The Rue du Faubourg St Antoine, the most picturesque of this neighbourhood, will allow you to head towards La Nation among craftsmen.

Routes for everyone :

for lovers of leisurely walks :

If you want to enter a different, very convivial world, choose Rues Oberkampf, de Charonne and de la Roquette. There you will find numerous atmospheric bars and small restaurants with a taste of exotic travels.

For a bit of peace and quiet, try Rue du Faubourg St Antoine, delightfully picturesque with numerous narrow lanes and charming inner courtyards.

for lovers of culture :

The main cultural attraction of the 11th arrondissement is the Place de la Bastille, where there is a monument celebrating the new-found freedom after the storming of the Bastille in 1789.

for lovers of shopping :

On going down the small roads perpendicular to Rue de la Roquette, you will find small boutiques specialized in everything to do with myths and legends (statues of elves, of gnomes, …). Or you can take Rue du Faubourg St Antoine and discover the best handicrafts.

To remember: La Place de la Bastille / La Rue du Faubourg St Antoine / Les Rues Oberkampf and de Charonne.
