Paris is the largest city and capital of the country France.[1]



The wizarding hat-maker Madame Bonhabille was based in Paris in the late 19th century.[2] Headmistress Eupraxia Mole commissioned her to make a bespoke hat for Peeves, the resident poltergeist of Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry, as a conciliatory gesture in the wake of then-Hogwarts Caretaker Rancorous Carpe's attempt to get rid of him.[2]

In the 1920s, the wizarding community in Paris was quite glamourous and beautiful. It was much freer than in New York and was similiar to the wizarding community in England.[3] In the 6 December 1926 issue of The New York Ghost, it was reported that an international manhunt for Gellert Grindelwald was underway in several cities, including Paris.[4]

In September 1927, Newt Scamander travelled to Paris to find Credence Barebone. This happened on Albus Dumbledore's orders.[5]

According to himself, Victor Ketsueki attended all-night parties in the catacombs beneath Paris after he was allegedly turned into a vampire during the summer of 1990.[6]

The Which Witch? fashion show took place in Paris in early 1992.[8] It was attended by London clothier Madam Malkin, who closed down her shop while she was away.[8]

The Daily Prophet once reported in its section on international weather that it would be 21° in Paris.[9]
