Gare du Nord: heading to Europe

The largest railway station in the capital and the first railway station in Europe connects Paris to many neighboring countries: the United Kingdom (London) with Eurostar, Germany (Cologne), the Netherlands (Amsterdam ) and Belgium (Brussels) with Thalys. As well as the North of France, including the cities of Lille, Calais and Dunkirk.

Inaugurated for the first time in 1846, the station went through a new period of work in 1861 under the direction of Jacques-Ignace Hittorff. The architect then ordered 23 statues to famous Parisian sculptors to dress the building's facade and represent the cities served by the train. The neoclassical building is now listed as a historic monument.

An impressive public transport network links the train station to all the places of Paris: 3 RER lines (B, D & E), 3 subway lines, 12 bus lines and 7 Noctilien lines.
