Grand Palais

Location: in Paris’s 8th arrondissement for the 1900 Exposition Universelle, the historic Grand Palais des Champs Élysées will host fencing, taekwondo, wheelchair fencing and para taekwondo.

Capacity: 8,000 spectators during the Olympic Games and 6,500 spectators during the Paralympic Games.

Advice: The Grand Palais venue will be served by Franklin D. Roosevelt Station (Metro lines 1 & 9). Exceptionally high passenger numbers are expected on these lines, especially on line 9. Public transport access to competition venues will be disrupted during the Games. In particular, the Champs-Élysées-Clemenceau, Concorde, and Tuileries metro stations will all be closed. Spectators are advised to allow sufficient travel time and to arrive early at the competition site.
