Settling Successfully in Saint-Germain

Administrative Procedures and Open Houses for New Residents of Saint-Germain

The municipality provides all documentation required to settle in our city at the Administrative Centre, at the City Hall and at the Bel Air City Hall Annex, directs you to the appropriate departments and services, and provides information on the various activities available.

The city’s website and Le Journal de Saint-Germain-en-Laye inform you of all Saint-Germain-related news and provide practical information to make your life easier.

To promote the arrival of newcomers, two open house welcome days are held, one in spring and one in autumn.

On these occasions, you will be greeted by the municipal team during an afternoon that is entirely dedicated to newcomers.

These open houses are a great opportunity to get to know each other: first and foremost, fellow residents of Saint-Germain, in addition to the city’s elected officials and many representatives of its voluntary associations.

It is also a great way to discover Saint-Germain-en-Laye, its history and its rich heritage.

In short, these open houses are a friendly and relaxed setting for facilitating the integration of new Saint-Germain residents into community life and for sharing with them, upon their arrival, the exceptional quality of life that characterizes our city and that each year attracts those who, like you, have chosen to settle there.

Welcome to all!



While it is a city renowned for its prestigious past, the Saint-Germain-en-Laye of today is a dynamic city in motion. In addition to its 42,009 inhabitants, each year it attracts new residents drawn to its rich heritage and very pleasant living environment. Two newcomer tours are scheduled each year: one in spring and one in autumn.

Each tour begins at the Town Hall with the projection of a film about the city in the Multimedia Room, and then continues with a bus tour lasting about 2 hours.

This bus tour will introduce you to both the well-known and lesser known aspects of our beautiful city: the Château du Val, the inter-municipal pool, the Cross of Noailles, the “Plaine Agricole” (‘Agricultural Field’) area, the “Quartier Général des Loges” municipal stadiums, the “Maison d’éducation de la Légion d’honneur” secondary school, the ponds of Cora, the “Grande ceinture” Station, the Fire-fighters Rescue Centre, and more!
