PARIS 2024

Olympische Flamme soll nahe dem Louvre während der Pariser Spiele brennen

July 26, 2024 - August 11, 2024 - Die Olympische Flamme soll in den Tuilerien vor dem Louvre während der Dauer der Pariser Spiele im Juli und Agust brennen.

There had been speculation that the flame might be placed on the Eiffel Tower, while organisers also contemplated putting it in the courtyard of the Louvre, the world's biggest museum.

The lighting of the cauldron is a key moment during the Olympics opening ceremony, signalling the formal start of the global sports extravaganza.

It was unclear if the cauldron would be lit inside the Tuileries or whether it would be transferred there after the unprecedented opening ceremony on July 26, which is set to take place on boats along the nearby river Seine, AFP said.
