Pont Alexandre III

Pont Alexandre III is a bridge between the Seine’s two banks, at the heart of Paris and surrounded by the countless monuments sprinkled across the capital. It has been part of the city’s most memorable events since it was inaugurated for the 1900 Exposition Universelle, and is a work of art and monument in its own right.

The bridge is 45 metres wide, 107 metres long, bounded by four impressive columns supporting golden bronze statues, and will provide a spectacular backdrop for several events during the Paris 2024 Games. 

Pont Alexandre III connects two other Paris 2024 sports venues: the Grand Palais and Invalides, and is the perfect illustration of Paris 2024’s aim to bring the Games to life in the centre of the world’s most beautiful city and amid its best-known, most-loved landmarks. The bridge linking Invalides and the Grand Palais is also a stone’s throw from Concorde, the Arena Champ-de-Mars, Pont d’Iéna and the Eiffel Tower stadium, so the entire area will be abuzz with energy during the Games. It will provide a majestic setting for the finish line of the individual cycling time trials, swimming marathon, triathlon and para triathlon.
