Celebrate the start of the Olympic Games Paris 2024 from the heart of the city

Olympic Games


This year, Paris 2024 is breaking tradition with an extraordinary Olympic Games Opening Ceremony on the iconic Seine River, with athletes proudly representing their nations while parading through the heart of Paris. Along the route is the Musée d’Orsay, which offers sweeping views of the city and the River Seine.

For one night only, the terrace will be transformed for an exclusive event where guests will get to have a once in a lifetime experience.

The evening will be hosted by Mathieu Lehanneur, the designer of the Olympic Torch and Cauldron for the Paris 2024 Games.

As a French designer, being part of such a significant global event taking place in Paris is an honor. Hosting this evening allows me to share my passion for both art and the Olympics with fans from around the world.”

Mathieu Lehanneur

“Musée d’Orsay, originally Gare d’Orsay, dates back to 1900. It inspires me every time I see it.” – Mathieu Lehanneur

“Our design team paid homage to the architecture of the Musée d’Orsay’s facade by placing arches throughout the terrace. Step through them into a world of wonder.” – Mathieu Lehanneur.

Situated on the left bank of the River Seine, the terrace at Musée d’Orsay offers the perfect perch to witness the nearly 10,500 athletes expected to float past.

“Every detail of the design was scrutinized by my team, even the gradients in the lighting. This pink, along with the blues in the other sections of the terrace, represent the flagship colors of this summer’s festivities.” – Mathieu Lehanneur.

“My team has designed the rooftop terrace to evoke three emotions. The entrance, where we’ve placed my creations, is your moment of awe; the tasting bar is your moment of delight; and the dance floor is your moment of joy. Embrace them all.” – Mathieu Lehanneur.
