What is a Bateau Mouche?

Like Paris’s lifeblood, the River Seine winds through the most iconic landmarks of the French capital. Cruising along it offers the perfect vantage point from which to admire the city’s most unforgettable landmarks, away from the busy streets. Every year, bateau mouche Seine cruises attract millions of tourists who want to enjoy Paris differently.

During the 1867 Exposition Universelle – or World Fair – in Paris, bateaux mouches were introduced following a contest organized for the exhibition. A shipbuilder from Lyon, Michel Félizat, won first prize and, after building thirty of these boats in his workshop of the Mouche neighborhood in Lyon, had them shipped to the capital. That’s where these unique boats got their name!

Open-air decks or glass ceilings create the most immersive experience thanks to unobstructed views. Paris’s world-famous monuments such as the clock-adorned façade of the Orsay Museum, the Louvre’s glass pyramids or Notre Dame’s gothic grandeur all can be admired from the river. A Bateaux Mouches Seine cruise is an absolute must for any Paris trip.
