Hauts-de-Seine tourist informationwhere to go - what to see - what to do
Hauts-de-Seine lies to the west of Paris and contains some cultural gems, notably the Château de Malmaison at Rueil-Malmaison. This 17th century estate is known for its ties with Napoleon. It was Joesphine who bought this residence as a retreat from the Emperor's formal palaces at the Tuileries and Fontainebleu.
The town of Sevres is also worth seeing. In the past it used to attract hoards of Parisians who came here to taste the 'vin de coteaux' and tour its wine cellars cut out of the rock face.
Now industry has taken over as in Gennevilliers which has become a centre for electronics, mechanics, research and other high-tech industries.
- Art History - visit the delightful Musee Rodin at Meudon where the great artist came to escape Parisian life in 1895.
