Parc Astérix is a mix of 47 attractions and shows set in 6 unique worlds (Gaul, the Roman Empire, Ancient Greece, the Vikings, A Journey through Time and Ancient Egypt). Parc Astérix is a dizzying adventure aboard OzIris, the attraction of the Pharaohs, or on Goudurix, the rollercoaster with 7 loops ; emotions for Little Gauls in the Forest of Idéfix, and even thrills for the whole family with Pégase Express!

STAY IN ONE OF THE PARK’S HOTELS

NEW: LES QUAIS DE LUTÈCE HOTEL

Discover Les Quais de Lutèce in 50 BC!

The first 4-star hotel at Parc Astérix will transport you to the heart of Lutèce, to the time of Astérix and Obélix. 

Les Quais de Lutèce voted the best hotel of the Year in 2020! Honoured with an international award by the TEA, Themed Entertainment Association.

In those days, the City was located around the banks of the Seine and its trade and culture were thriving. A festive break in a town from that period. Les Quais de Lutèce Hotel was created as a fun stay in the city as it was at that time, linking the two banks of the Seine, like an authentic experience of the Roman way of life.

LA CITE SUSPENDUE HOTEL: ONE WORLD, THREE UNIVERSES

Suspended above the ground and reaching up to the stars, the mysterious Potters, Druids and Artists’ Village are proof that this ancient Celtic city was once inhabited. Stylish and comfortable rooms await you in a friendly and welcoming atmosphere.

The Hôtel des Trois Hiboux in the heart of the forest is somewhere for all the family to stay in an authentic atmosphere. Rooms decorated in a natural style and a buffet restaurant for every taste will allow you to enjoy a well-deserved and relaxing break.
