History

The district takes its name from the Porte Dauphine, located today at the western end of Avenue Foch. In the past, the north-western part of the former village of Chaillot stood there. During the Second Empire, Baron Haussmann undertook works that made what was left of the hamlet disappear. Nowadays, the architecture of the buildings refers to this period with its recognisable style.

Cultural sites

  • Musée de la Contrefaçon (Counterfeit Museum): this 200 m² museum, opened in 1951, aims to inform its visitors about the extent of counterfeiting, but also about its impact on the world economy. It exhibits 350 counterfeit products that allow the curious to learn how to differentiate between real and fake by comparing them to authentic objects.
  • Fondation Louis Vuitton: located in the Bois de Boulogne, this building, designed by the famous architect Frank Gehry, aims to perpetuate the sponsorship initiatives undertaken by the Group since 1990. It is therefore possible to admire this deconstructivist-style building and the collections it houses.

Since 2017, a lot of work has been done to redevelop the park in the spirit of the steampunk theme.
