The Quai de Valmy is located in the 10th arrondissement of Paris and runs along the Canal Saint-Martin, an ideal place for tourist walks.

With a length of 1720 m, the Quai de Valmy was created in 1824. Previously, it was more than 3 km long and started from the boulevard Beaumarchais to the place de la Bastille.

Paying tribute to the Battle of Valmy, this quay was named in 1830. It was targeted twice by the German air force during the First World War.
