Parc des Princes Tours
Read MoreShow Less
The Parc des Princes stadium is the home turf of one of Europe’s top soccer teams, Paris Saint-Germain. When it’s not hosting matches, the 49,000-capacity arena in the southwest corner of Paris hosts concerts by international music acts, such as the Rolling Stones and Green Day.
This stadium, opened in 1972, was designed by Roger Taillibert and drew rave reviews for its striking, avant garde design, most notably the 50 concrete columns that buttress a dramatic ring-shaped roof. Though vintage, the stadium still has an electric energy when hometown heros Paris Saint-Germain take the pitch. Get tickets for a match, and sit among diehard local fans as they chant, “Ici c'est Paris!” (“This is Paris!”) in unison, or take a behind-the-scenes tour to see the changing rooms, trophy room, and hidden spots.
