An impressive building with its abundant cast iron, the Grande Halle de la Villette overlooks the southern entrance to the Parc de la Villette. This former livestock salesroom, which has now been fully restored and converted, today hosts a large number of cultural events (including exhibitions, concerts and dance shows, etc.) in addition to exhibitions. If you are arriving by car to visit the Grande Halle de la Villette or to attend one of its events, don’t forget to book your parking space in advance via ParkingsdeParis.com.
The Parc de la Villette and its various cultural spots attract large numbers of motorists. Car parks located nearby are full very quickly most of the time and surrounding roads can get jammed easily. To avoid traffic, park your car in the Parking 2000 located around 15 minutes on foot from the Grande Halle de la Villette.
We also recommend the Stalingrad parking which is just a 5-minute walk from the Stalingrad Metro station. Take Metro line 5 (orange), in the direction of Bobigny Pablo Picasso, which will take you in 5 minutes to the Porte de Pantin Metro station just in front of the Grande Halle de la Villette. Or the Riquet parking which is just a 2-minute walk from the Riquet Metro station. Take Metro line 7 (pink) in the direction of La Courneuve to the Porte de la Villette Metro station. Then cross the Parc de la Villette to join the Grande Halle. Are you arriving by way of the Boulevard Périphérique (Ring Road) ? To avoid the stress of having to enter Paris, we advise you use the Porte des Lilas parking. Park up and then walk to the Porte des Lilas Tram station by taking Avenue de la Porte des Lilas (you should allow around 5 minutes on foot from the car park). Take Tram T3b in the direction of Porte de la Chapelle. This will drop you off in 5 minutes to the Porte de Pantin Metro station just in front of the Grande Halle de la Villette.
