The History

After two years of extensive building work, in 2018 Longchamp racecourse has become ParisLongchamp! More than 160 years after the racecourse was first opened, a new chapter in the history of this renowned horse racing venue has begun.

In its new glass-covered Grandstand building, designed by architect Dominique Perrault, ParisLongchamp treats visitors to a whole new racing experience: no pillars hinder the views from the Grandstand, a 180° panorama that was carefully studied to heighten the experience of watching the racehorses in action on the legendary ParisLongchamp turf; flowing traffic to enable visitors and horseracing professionals to move freely from one place to another in less than 2 minutes; an extended parade ring; 500 screens for watching the races; and the odds distributed all around the grounds.

ParisLongchamp is recognised worldwide as a highly challenging course. Every year, several of the season’s most prestigious flat races are held on the Parisian racecourse: no fewer than 17 of the 27 Group 1 races, the highest category of flat race.
