European Heritage Days: 100% digital!

This year’s European Heritage Days, held on 19 and 20 September, were 100% digital! Visit the “Welcome on board!” platform to discover the behind-the-scenes story of our digital version of this event!

Chaque édition des Journées Européennes du Patrimoine est l’occasion de vous dévoiler la richesse de notre patrimoine.

Contraints par la situation sanitaire actuelle, nous avons adapté notre programmation habituelle. A la place des parcours commentés sur le réseau et des balades en bus à plateforme notamment, proposés lors des précédentes éditions, nous vous invitons à découvrir les secrets les mieux gardés du métro parisien dans

Each European Heritage Days event is a chance for us to share our rich heritage with you.

Due to the current health crisis, we were obliged to adapt our usual programming. Instead of guided tours on our network and open-top bus rides as in previous years, we invited you to discover the best-kept secrets of the Paris metro in a totally new format.

For the first time, a dedicated digital platform was set up. In just a few clicks, from a computer or smartphone, users were able to take a ride through a time tunnel and access fun, educational content. 

Discover our collection of rolling stock, follow in the footsteps of a guide on the network, visit a ghost station and so on. On the agenda: 120 years of heritage, innovation and culture at the heart of our universe.

Here is a sneak preview of the experience we are going to offer you:

Get ready to climb on board the first metro in the 1900s on Friday, 18 September from 6:00 p.m.

360° virtual tours

360o virtual tours will be offered on the website where you will be able to travel in vehicles that have been part of our history - from the electric tram to the legendary SC10 bus, including the very first wooden metro in 1900 or the famous TN4H bus -, as if you were there!

Enjoy a unique experience and total immersion in time by taking a ride through our history on!

And of course, throughout the weekend, there will be activities, games and quizzes on our social media platforms using the hashtag #JEPRATP on our Twitter accounts, as well as on Instagram, Facebook, YouTube and Souncloud.
