Gare De Austerlitz is one of the many stations in Paris that will take you to the local area. There are also trains further afield.

There are connections to the Metro and I would suggest checking out line 5 which takes you through the station. Worth checking out if you like things a bit unusual.

There are aslo RER services on line C to a variety of different destinations including Champ Des Mars where you can admire the Eiffel Tower.

I visited in November 2022 and at this time the trains on the RER were not stopping at St Michel for Notre Dame. This is also a connection for RER line B so be aware!

Still going through a major revamp and chaos reigned. The ticket office was closed and it was i9mpossiblew to get any information. Fortunately, it was a warm, dry day so people were able to wait outside, had it been raining or cold it would have been awful.

Terrible place, the construction is STILL going on, which makes the station a giant maze. The ticket machines declined my card and I had to go to the ticket office. Took me an eternity to find it. Staff is professional but typical French, no smiles ;)

The coffee they sold was good, that made it a little bit better.

I often come to Austerlitz in the three years I have been here, there is always some sort of major refurbishment going on. Its not traveller friendly at all, the new toilets although ultra clean and new with an 80 centime entry charge are a nightmare to navigate through turnstiles with cases. The warm lounge is tiny and inadequate for the amount of train travelling public. There are not many places to get warm at all. It's just everything is all over the place, no cohesion and refurbishment taking too long. I look forward to the day its completed.

We arrived and left Paris at this station. Seems to be going through a major work of refurbishment. We found it chaotic and the signs were only just suitable

No staff around to help and the info office was closed! A Thursday at 11am and it’s closed

Be vigilant with ur bag! I was with my 2 toddlers, one in a strollee and the other hand-held. The damned guy must have been stalking us around already targetting distressed moms with challenged attentiom due to her children. I was ordering for tske away at the counter along the alley and i noticed a guy come close (not lined up behind me, there is a line behind me) as i took my cc from my wallet and left my bag open with my kid fronting it. He was holding a bag too which i guessed covered his picking from my bag. Called the police (17) to report it but since we were travelling back to Limoges they advised to report it there and the security cams are everywhere in there so he can be easily identified if i come to report at the police station.

This is a busy station and can take the Inter Cities train to reach Paris. It is also connected to other metro lines and a stopover for interconnection.

Gare de Austerlitz is one of the main train stations in PAris. As we're staying in Bastille, nearby to place, so we took the RER from this station to visit Palace de Versailles, which was very convenient and direct way to reach Versailles.

This is a basic busy train station and also a transfer point for two Metro lines and a suburban train line. Inside are a few cafes, nothing special.

This is a major train station in the city and a place where I do a change of Metro lines regularly. There are places to eat and drink in the station and a few stores.
