A little closer to the stars

In the event of an early or late arrival, enjoy an intimate and chic experience right in the heart of Aerospace Valley.

“A coral flower watered by the sun. This is perhaps why, in spite of your red and black, you’re called the Pink City.” When Claude Nougaro sings Toulouse, you’ll already be in the South of France. Planes land at Blagnac, sometimes a little late at night, and it’s within the Radisson Blu Hotel, close to the airport, that you’ll stop for a break. Its contemporary design is a kind of luxurious bubble in which you can pleasantly spend time.

La Vie en Rose restaurant offers an inventive and sophisticated cuisine. While you’re in transit, take some time to stroll along one of the two 350 m² terraces, with a beautiful pergola. If, on the other hand, you want to take the opportunity to get closer to the world of space, know that Toulouse is a city that can bring you closer to the stars. Your curiosity will lead you to the site where the “giant of the skies” is manufactured, right in the heart of the aeronautical center, five minutes from Airbus workshops and visits. This 50-hectare plot is where the Airbus A380 completes assembly and takes to the air, and you can learn all of the secrets of the world’s only double-decker aircraft.

If aeronautics is your passion, you should visit the Aeroscopia Museum. The history and legacy of aviation are told here, using models, historic frescos, and also with aeronautic photographs taken by Jean Dieuzaide between 1954 and 1972. If you happen to be there on Saturday, May 20, don’t miss the “Night in the Museum” and, on Saturday, June 17, the “Archeology Day”.

Only 15 minutes from the city center, the hotel will allow you to enjoy the numerous events organized this spring in the Pink City, particularly the 22nd edition of the Rio Loco Festival at the Prairie des Filtres from June 15 to 18.
