Pasage du Havre is a link between the main department stores and the Saint-Lazare train station. The passage currently offers a great choice of clothing brands and other decoration shops.
First opened to the public in 1846, ten years after the construction of the Saint-Lazare train station, the Passage du Havre was a commercial success fr om day one with its many stores for toys, belts, shoes and other decorative or hardware products. Pre-dating the department stores by fifty years, with its high glass ceiling and a strategic location, the arcade was always bustling and a magnet to the crowds of shoppers. Today is one of the most popular shopping arcades in Paris, home to many well known brands such as the Fnac, Bourjois, Séphora, Fossil, Nature et découvertes, Zara, GAP, and H&M.
