Destination guide

There's a whole world of talent in Saint-Denis

Known throughout the world for the Stade de France stadium, there's much more to Saint-Denis than just soccer and rugby. French monarchs are buried in the 12th-century Basilica Cathedral, and Cinema City is one of Europe's leading movie studios. Formerly an industrial center, the town's now known for its street markets, cultural festivals and burgeoning art scene. Saint-Denis vacation rentals also make ideal bases to visit such nearby attractions as Galeries Lafayette, Arc de Triomphe, and Notre Dame Cathedral.

Things to do

Be sure to wear something blue to the Stade de France

If you're a film fan, you've come to the right place. Even though it only opened in 2012, Cinema City is now one of Europe's most important movie studios. Designed by famous French filmmaker Luc Besson, the studio has produced several major action movies. The Stade de France is one of Europe's biggest stadiums, and hosted the FIFA World Cup Final in 1998, and the Rugby World Cup Final in 2007. And the Gothic-style Basilica of Saint Denis is the burial place for all but 3 of France's kings.


Where the sporting, culinary, and cinematic worlds collide

Since the Stade de France first opened in 1998, Saint-Denis has become a go-to destination for sports fans the world over. The 81,000-seater stadium is home to both the French soccer and rugby team, so there's lots of top sports events to go to. The cosmopolitan Saint-Denis Market, with its Asian and African stalls, is a must for foodies, while culture lovers will go absolutely gaga for Cinema City, and The Museum of Art and History. You might also want to add other must-see nearby attractions such as the Eiffel Tower, Palace of Versailles, or Paris Opera to your agenda.

Within this rich wetland habitat, you'll come across many different aquatic plants, insects, amphibians, and birds along its walking trails.
