The 2011 Prix de l'Arc de Triomphe was a horse race held at Longchamp on Sunday 2 October 2011.[1] It was the 90th running of the Prix de l'Arc de Triomphe.

The winner was Danedream, a three-year-old filly trained in Germany by Peter Schiergen. The winning jockey was Andrasch Starke.[2]

Danedream was the second German-trained horse to win the "Arc". The only prior victory was that of Star Appeal in 1975.

The winning time of 2m 24.49s set a new record for the event. The previous record of 2m 24.60s was achieved by Peintre Celebre in 1997.

Unusually for the race, the first three finishers were all fillies.
