The Christmas Beehive

The giant Christmas tree stands tall beneath the famous dome at Galeries Lafayette Paris Haussmann. Its frosted and amber tones attract the foraging bees. Every 30 minutes, you can watch the beehive come alive and the bees fly away. 

This year, visitors of Galeries Lafayette can marvel at the 11 scenes of the Christmas Beehive. From the festival of lights to the Queen’s banquet and the Winter Garden, the window displays along boulevard Haussmann are brimming with magic. In each window, the bees are preparing for Christmas Eve: the Queen is making herself look beautiful, the scout bees are taking care of the lights, and the worker bees are in the kitchen… All the bees are lending a helping wing to make sure that the Christmas Beehive is ready on time.
