The fountain self is quite different than a usual fountain. It is more a square pond with artworks that spue water. The area is a nice place to sit. Restaurants and cafes are near the fountain. One side of the fountain is big open area...More
This fountain is actually 13 fountains, representing Stravinsky's works. They are not all from The Rite of Spring, as another review suggested. The sculptures are fun and interesting. The problems are 1) the water was turned off in May, and 2) there is no explanation...More
This is a lovely fountain, famous for its colorful and somehow grotesque figures.
The fountain is located just next to Pompidou center.
There are a couple of restaurants next to the fountain and some street performers as well.
Watch your belongings for pickpockets.
I often enjoy people watching at this fountain. It is just outside of the Centre Pompidou. In the winter, when I was there last, it was not operating and had no water in it. When it is operational, it has a bunch of mirthful characters...More
We saw the Stravinsky Fountain on our way to Centre Pompidou in the early evening on a cold December day. It’s a huge shallow basin (there is a building underneath) adorned with black sculptures by Swiss sculptor Jean Tinguely (1925-1991) and brightly coloured work by...More
Excepting winter time there is an excellent place to relax your feet after a long visit in Pompidou Center or just around Seine. Also is a place of youth with skateboarders, laughs and people enjoying life. A good view to St Marie Church, Dali wall...More
What a great place to sit and people watch. Great sculptures and street art is eye candy, and sometimes there are street performers. All just next to the Pompidou Center. And just a few blocks away on St. Martin Street is the Monsieur Benjamin Art...More
The Stravinsky Fountain is a collection of brightly coloured, whimsical pieces of art spewing water. They fountain is enjoyable to view. If you are in the area of the George Pompidou Centre, then be sure to stroll around the fountain.
A beautifully made fountain but the dirty surroundings and the lack of water were a bad combination. The square, in general, was a nice place to grab a drink or lunch/dinner but it would be so much better if the fountain was operational.
Historically the central iron-clad market of Paris, Les Halles has evolved architecturally since then but the pulsating energy has stayed the same. Now it houses the main shopping mall, which nestles underground surrounded by fast-food take-aways and international restaurants coupled with beautiful churches and the old commodity exchange. Parallel to it are the high-street stores of Rue de Rivoli and
just parallel to that the Seine. The area bustles with faces from all continents and all ages at all times of the day. If enjoying high-street shopping with easy access to fast eateries and lively bars is on your agenda, this is the place to go.
