What's The Best time to Visit the Conciergerie?

Peak season vs low season

While the best time to visit the Conciergerie is between April and June and and again between October and early November, these are also when the Conciergerie sees the most visitors. Paris witnesses a very pleasant climate during these months and it is more favourable for tourists to visit the attractions in Paris during these months. Travel and accommodation expenses are also higher during these months due to the high influx of tourists.

If you want to beat the crowd and get cheaper accommodation and travel, we recommend that you visit the Conciergerie during December, January, or February. The weather will be colder than the rest of the year, but it ensures a cheaper and less crowded experience for you.

Weekday vs weekend

Admission to the Conciergerie is free on National Heritage Days and on the first Sunday of every month, so you can expect huge crowds on these days. We recommend that you avoid booking your visit during these days for a pleasant experience. The Conciergerie is also more crowded during the weekends, especially during the peak season. If you want a less crowded experience with shorter wait times, we suggest you visit the Conciergerie during the week.

However, if you do plan your visit during the weekends, we suggest that you book slots during the morning or late afternoon to avoid crowds. Arrive early to avoid long queues and the midday crowds.
