The station from paris north, more commonly known as Gare du Nord station, was opened on 20 June 1846. However, it was 18 years later, in 1864, that the station designed by the architect Jacques Ignace Hittorf - the one that still exists today - was inaugurated.
The Gare du Nord is a new neoclassical-modernist building built in a U-shape. The main façade, decorated with 23 statues representing the main towns served by trains from the station, is of Roman inspiration and is worth admiring.
Throughout the twentieth century, the Gare du Nord station will continue to grow in importance. In 2017, nearly 270 million passengers will have passed through this station.
It should be noted that Gare du Nord station serves as a regional service with dedicated tracks for RER B and RER D - RER E being accessible via an underground. But also to the Transilien lines H and K. In terms of national services, the TGVs make it possible to connect all the major conurbations in the Hauts de France region, and in particular Lille. TER trains from Paris Nord serve the former Picardy and the Côte d'Opale.
Finally, it is impossible not to mention international services. The Eurostar service provides connections to London and all other UK cities. The Thalys service, for its part, allows you to go to Brussels, Liège, Antwerp (Belgium), Amsterdam (Netherlands) or Cologne (Germany), to mention only the major destinations.
