Walk in the hippodrome of Auteuil in Bois de Boulogne

A walk easy and very nice to see the hippodrome of Auteuil from inside.

There is a park open to the the public inside the hippodrome of Auteuil (racecourse of Auteuil). It's a very uncommon walk. Be careful the park is closed on race days. You can go on this site for the opening days. The racecourse is near the Bois de Boulogne, the nearest metro station is "Ranelagh", after you need to walk a little to reach the racecourse. This walk is not very well known but it's honestly worth the trip, do not hesitate to discover the hippodrome of Auteuil!
