Passage of the Olympic flame in Rambouillet

On July 23, 2024, Rambouillet will be one of the eight towns in Yvelines to host the Olympic Flame relay.

The passage of the Olympic Flame through Rambouillet is both unique and symbolic and perfectly marks the participation and commitment of the city – benefiting from the Terre de jeux label – in the Olympic spirit and in its policy in favor of sport for all. On July 23, the Olympic Flame will pass through Versailles, highlighted by 600 scouts, through nearly 100 municipalities and throughout the 500 kilometers planned in the Ile-de-France region.

In Rambouillet, the flame will travel 4 km, passing major heritage sites of the city.
