For the summer, as ever, this cultural centre offers amazing exhibitions and moments of delightful relaxation on its rooftop.
The exciting and eclectic Georges Pompidou Centre
Once again, this Parisian institution attracts and surprises with the diversity of its programming. In addition to its rich and eclectic permanent exhibitions, the Georges Pompidou Centre offers several events this summer. Until August 27th it’s the UMA, the Union des Artistes Modernes, that is the subject of an exciting chronological presentation. At the same time, an exhibition exploring contemporary digital creation in different disciplines and another featuring the artist Ryoji Ikeda open up unexpected perspectives.
A rooftop in the heart of Paris
If you work up an appetite during your visit to the Georges Pompidou Centre, head to the Georges restaurant, installed on the roof of this innovative building designed by Renzo Piano. The tastefully restrained decor only highlights the splendour of the view over the heart of Paris and its world-famous monuments. The towers and roofs of Notre Dame seem almost close enough to touch! Sit in the open air and enjoy the inventive Georges cuisine. Take the time to linger at the Georges Pompidou Centre during your stay at the Hotel du Continent. Its astonishing architecture, superb exhibitions and fine restaurant with magnificent views are not to be missed.
