Charles de Gaulle airport to Gare du Nord, Paris

I will be arriving by air and would like to know how to find the train to the Gare du Nord from Charles de Gaulle airport. Is this train a part of the Metro? How are the signs marked for the trains to the Gare du Nord? From the Gare du Nord I will take a train to Laon, Fr.

Any help or suggestions would be appreciated.

It might be helpful for specific advice if you know at which Terminal your flight will arrive...

for general instructions, try reading the FAQ: in the upper right side of this page... know that there is signage that directs you to "Paris by train"...

It is the RER rail system, which is not the same as the Paris Metro, but does have some connections to the metro within Paris.

Do you know which rail station you will depart from for Laon..?

Just follow the signs "Paris by Train" also marked RER. The fare is 9.50€. There are trains to Laon from Paris-Nord all through the day and the direct fare 23.50€. If you take a train that requires a connection, the fare is 26.40€.

You may find this link helpful about getting into Paris from CDG:


To check train schedules to Laon (and prices) you can use http://en.voyages-sncf.com/en/ When using the http://en.voyages-sncf.com/en/ website here are a few tips. When entering Paris as your arrival or departure point you will notice a drop down menu appears when you start to type the word ''paris''. Select ''Paris (all stations – FR)'' and this will automatically bring up the correct train station in Paris for your journey.

Be sure to uncheck the box marked ''Direct Trains''. If you are redirected to the RailEurope website try again and select ''Antarctic'' as your ticket collection country. The RailEurope website usually doesn't show all the trains and shows higher ticket prices. Be sure to also look at other ticket purchase options. If you are having troubles with the SNCF website you can also use the German rail site www.bahn.de for schedules but it will not give train ticket prices.

Hope you have a great time in Laon, a town that I like very much.
