Walk in the Auteuil racecourse of the Bois de Boulogne

An unusual and very pleasant walk to discover the Auteuil racecourse from the inside.

A park has been set up inside the Auteuil racecourse, you can't be closer to the track. Attention the park is closed on race days. You can visit this site to know the opening days. The access to the Bois de Boulogne is not easy, there is no real metro station next to it, you will have to walk a little bit, the closest station to the entrance is the metro station "Ranelagh". This walk is not very well known but it's really worth the trip, the park is recent and very well arranged, don't hesitate to discover the park of the hippodrome of Auteuil !
