Since it was first held on 3 October 1920, the Prix de l'Arc de Triomphe has become the most important flat race in the world, bringing together the finest racehorses and the best jockeys on the planet over one weekend at the famous Longchamp Racecourse in Paris. There's a huge amount at stake, as the winning horse will be cheered home by a massive crowd, and showered with glory in the paddock. This high level race is battled out each year once millions of bets have been placed, with 60,000 spectators watching. Let yourself be carried away by the winds of folly that blow through the stands as soon as the horses leave the starting gates.

The Longchamp Racecourse, situated in the Bois de Boulogne, reopened its doors in spring 2018 after two years of extensive works. This impressive venue measures 160 m in length, 35 m in width and 23 m in height and was conceived by architect Dominique Perrault, who was also in charge of designing the famous François Mitterrand site of the National Library of France. This temple of equestrianism, first created in 1857, notably welcomes the prestigious Qatar Prix de l'Arc de Triomphe. Horseracing enthusiasts come in droves, but curious visitors in search of new experiences are also welcome to bet on the races, discover the venue, dine in one of the 3 restaurants, enjoy the rooftop lounge or attend one of the numerous programmed events.
