Austria House: 5 Things We Know So Far

With just over 100 days to go to the Olympic Games, and after much debate, the Austrian Olympic Committee (ÖOC) announced that they will be opening the doors to Austria House at Paris 2024.


What We Know: Location


Austria House will be located at Pavillon Montsouris, in the South of Paris in the 14th arrondissement. As noted in the press release:


“We were looking for a perfect location for the Austria House and are pleased that we found it after numerous discussions and intensive negotiations with the Montsouris Pavilion. We chose a location that, in addition to a unique flair and flexible use, combines numerous other advantages: the space is busy, has a high frequency and is still family-friendly."

The Pavillon Monsouris is located in the edge of Parc Montsouris, which officially opened in the city of Paris in 1869. Considered one of the four large urban city parks, it is located in Southern Paris and amongst many features, Pavillon Montsouris sits on its Eastern edge.
