Coming to Reims for the Paris 2024 Olympic and Paralympic Games

Plan your trip to France
at the Paris 2024 Olympic Games

This summer, France will welcome athletes and supporters from all over the world to the Olympic and Paralympic Games.

If you attend events in and around Paris, Reims could be the perfect place to set up base camp.

Why choose Reims?

Reason #1: easy access đźš„

By TGV (high speed train), the city center is just 45 minutes from Paris Est. From there, it’s easy to take the metro to the Paris olympic races.

Arriving by plane from Roissy-Charles de Gaulle airport (CDG), a direct 30 minutes TGV (high speed train) brings you to Reims TGV station (Champagne Ardenne TGV), linked to the city center by tramway and frequent TER connections. There are also a number of hotels within easy reach of the station.

đź’ˇ To know

To optimize the cost of your Reims – Paris round trips, it may be worthwhile to opt for a weekly or monthly package, depending on the unit prices charged during that period. Prices for these season tickets are available on the SNCF website.

Reason #2: its accommodations 🛌

It’s difficult, if not impossible, to find accommodation in Paris during the Olympic Games, with demand far outstripping supply, and prices prohibitive.

The solution: Reims. With a large number of hotels in all categories, from non-rated to 5-star, and a range of rental accommodation, Reims has the capacity to accommodate a large number of visitors.

Our prices, supplemented by a TGV season ticket, are still lower than those in Paris, and you’ll be more comfortable every day.

Reason no. 3: rich and diversified tourist attractions 📸

You probably won’t have tickets for the Olympic events every day. So keep busy on the “OFF” days.

In Reims, you’ll be spoilt for choice: cultural visits, visits to champagne cellars in Reims or in the vineyards, guided tours through the vineyards, wellness activities, sports activities, hiking, shopping

From the city center, you can also easily explore other nearby towns and destinations: Epernay, Châlons-en-Champagne, the Ardennes… Accessible without a car, by TER (regional trains) from Reims-Centre station.

Reason No. 4: its restaurants and gastronomy 🍽️

An essential part of any trip: discovering the culinary identity of your destination.

In Reims, cuisine and the art of living in general occupy a central place in local culture. Although there is no single emblematic dish specific to the region, the art of eating well is an institution.

The area boasts 9 Michelin stars and a large number of restaurants promising unforgettable culinary discoveries.

Reims is also home to the pink biscuit, the local specialty, which can be found in desserts on the menus of many Reims restaurants.

Reason #5: Champagne 🍾

What better place to celebrate an Olympic podium than in Champagne? or digest defeat for that matter.

For as Napoleon so aptly put it:

“I can’t live without champagne – if I win, I deserve it, if I lose, I need it”.

To be enjoyed in moderation, of course.
