France’s colourful south and magical north

Whether it’s Edith Piaf, Claude Monet or Picasso – they have all been inspired by the magic of northern France. The Seine does not leave out a single facet of this beauty on its journey towards the Atlantic coast. Countless sights such as the Eiffel Tower, the Louvre or the Champs-Élysées await you in Paris. You can explore the picturesque seafaring and artist town of Honfleur in the fantastically beautiful Normandy. On its way, the Seine flows past lush green meadows and chalky white steep banks. And then there’s the Loire Valley: elegant castles line up one after another like pearls on a chain. The Loire Valley is known as the “garden of France” for a good reason.

Monet's heavenly idyll

From 1883 up until his death in 1926, Monet lived and painted in the village Giverny. You'll find details fromt he huge garden of his property in many of his pictures, including the famous water lily pond. Take a walk with us through the garden and be inspired by the beautiful surroundings.


The french capital on the Seine boasts many world-famous sights, such as the Eiffel Tower, Arc de Triomphe, Notre-Dame and the Champs-Élysées. A short stroll though the quiet Par du Luxembourg will show you another side to this lively metropolis.
