Opened since 1846, the Gare Paris-Nord, also called Gare du Nord, is a railway station for the French, North and neighbouring countries: Belgium, Great Britain, Germany… It is an important crossroads in Paris ; the Gare du Nord was an international transit station before serving regional traffic which has since developed strongly. It is the first European railway station with this dual function. The Gare du Nord station has been listed as an historic monument since January 15th 1975.
Different methods of transportation cross through the Gare du Nord station: high speed trains (TGV) and international trains (Eurostar, Thalys), suburban trains, RER, subway, bus, taxi and cycling (Vélib’). The connection between the Gare du Nord station and the Gare l’Est station is very close and it is actually faster to do the journey on foot (5 mn) rather than taking the subway.
