Like each summer, there will be works on RER line C and Metro line 6. Here, you will find all the info regarding the changes and alternative routes to plan your trip to the Eiffel Tower without a hitch!
On RER C line
From 15 July to 21 August included, the Champ de Mars – Tour Eiffel station on RER C line will be closed.

Replacement buses will be available throughout the entire period of disruptions.
On RATP Metro line 6
From 26 June to 27 August included, two periods of works are scheduled for Metro line 6.
Line 6 from Montparnasse Bienvenüe will not stop at the Trocadéro and Bir-Hakeim stations from 26 June to 27 August included. A replacement bus with the same schedule and route as Metro line 6 will run throughout the entire period of works.
Line 6 from Charles de Gaulle – Etoile will still stop at Trocadéro, which will be the terminus, except from 20 to 25 July included. During these five days, the stations from Charles de Gaulle – Etoile to Montparnasse will be closed, so Metro line 6 will not stop at the Trocadéro station.
