Modified the 08/02/21
Service will be interrupted from July 15 to August 23 on metro line 6 and RER C. But here, we provide all the traffic information you need to keep in mind to map out a smooth journey during this period.
RER C line
From July 15 until the evening of August 22, no trains will circulate between Paris Austerlitz and Javel/Avenue Henri Martin.
In consequence, the Tower will not be accessible via the Champ-de-Mars Eiffel Tower stop.
RATP Metro line 6
From July 25 to August 23, no trains will circulate between Charles de Gaulle-Etoile and Trocadero.
Metro line 6 (from Montparnasse) will continue to serve the Bir-Hakeim station, which is a 10-minute walk from the Eiffel Tower.
You can also take bus 30 from Charles de Gaulle-Etoile, which runs the same route as metro line 6 and is available all year round.
Tips for getting to the Tower during the construction period
To avoid the inconveniences of construction, take metro line 9 to the Trocadero station, or line 8 to Ecole Militaire for the best access to the Tower.
