Free Carousels in Paris

Carousel Paris

Christmas can be a busy, frantic time. But during the festive season, from mid December to early January each year, Paris puts a little bit of magic in almost every arrondisement .. to help busy Parisians take a moment to reflect on their childhood, or to allow the children to create their own precious memories.  

Twenty carousels spring up around Paris - and they are free for the young (and the young at heart).  With their distinctive cheerful music, decorative wooden horses and wonderfully elaborate styling, carousels are a cherished part of childhood for many French people.
Here is where you will find the carousels for 2015 / 2106.  Be aware that this list is subject to change.
