Discover the training grounds of the Republican Guard’s cavalry regiment on a guided tour of the site, located in the very heart of Paris.

Your guide will take you to the historic stables, refurbished as a museum presenting the history of the Republican Guard.

You’ll also discover the Battesti ring where the cavalry regiment trains daily beneath the Eiffel-style steel-framed roof.

In the Grand Stables and the General’s Stable, you’ll have the chance to get up close to the 140 horses of the Republican Guard and will learn all about their specific characteristics.

Spend 90 minutes immersed in the service of honour of the French Republic, reserved for the president, members of government, and high officials of state.

  • Guide très sympathique, la visite était très intéressante. Par contre le point de RV est au 22 et non au 18. Visite recommandée.

  • Echt interessant; einzige Einschränkung: man muss SEHR gut Französisch können, denn die Leiterin der Führung spricht in Lichtgeschwindigkeit, obwohl sie versprochen hatte, langsam zu sprechen...
