Major stations

RER B – CDG

The above instructions provide information on taking the RER B from Charles de Gaulle Airport to Paris centre and vice versa. If you know which CDG Terminal you’re landing at see the detailed photo instructions for CDG Terminal 2 to Paris or CDG Terminal 1 to Paris. If you’re landing at Terminal 3, use the CDG Terminal 1 to Paris instructions.

RER B – ORY

The RER B remains the fastest way to get from central Paris to Orly Airport (ORY) at a total single ticket cost of 9,60€. Keep in mind that the RER B does not directly connect to Orly Airport, but requires a connection onto Orlyval, a dedicated airport train leaving from Antony station, south of Paris, along the RER B train line.

RER B – Gare du Nord

The RER B train makes its first stop in central Paris at Gare du Nord, famous for being the station for the Eurostar high speed Paris to London train.

See the photo tour of Gare du Nord to get a better idea of its layout.

RER B – Chatelet Les Halles

The largest underground station in the world, Chatelet Les Halles, connects to a multitude of Metro and RER train lines including: Metro 1, 4, 7, 14 and RER A, RER B & RER D.

If you’re going to Gare de Lyon and are changing trains from RER B to the RER A at Chatelet Les Halles, note that the two trains are on the same platform, just at opposite sides. Simple alight the RER B, walk to the other side of the platform and board the next train. The next stop will be Gare de Lyon.

RER B – Saint Michel Notre Dame

Conveniently, the RER B makes a stop just next to the famous cathedral of Notre Dame, immediately beside the river Seine in Paris’ 6th district. This station also serves as a connection to the RER C line traveling to Versailles.

RER B – Luxembourg

This station is located immediately east of the Jardin du Luxembourg or Luxembourg Gardens.

RER B – Denfert Rochereau

Second to last station within central Paris for the RER B, Denfert-Rochereau connects to Metro Line 6 which connects to Gare Montparnasse, another of Paris’ popular main large train stations serving TGV trains out to Bordeaux and other southern cities in France.
