In Paris' 12th arrondissement de Paris, not far from Place de la Bastille and the Faubourg Saint-Antoine, this bastion of arts and crafts is a prestigious showcase for French know-how. Originally built for the Vincennes railway line, this magnificent viaduct that runs along Avenue Daumesnil today houses many art studios under its arches, ranging from cabinet-making to goldsmithery, through ironwork and glass-blowing. Craftspeople, designers and art teachers all have their place at this absolutely unique site!

Above the viaduct on the tree-lined walkway known as the Promenade plantée or Coulée verte René-Dumont, which follows the route of the former railway line, a totally different atmosphere greets you. Dotted with many trees, this pleasant path runs from the Arts Viaduct to the Montempoivre Gate and is a lovely place for a walk. Yet another great thing about this unusual viaduct!
