I was translating a text and I just can't get the meaning of this, here goes the full sentence:

Montmartre est apprécié encore aujourd'hui par les Parisiens comme par les touristes, pour son côté décalé, comme en dehors du temps

1 Answer 1


Décalé, comme en dehors du temps means that Montmartre neighborhood is offbeat, i.e. when people are here, they do not feel like being in the 21st century but in a location disconnected from the current time.
