For European Heritage Days on Saturday September 18 and Sunday 19, 2021, the Gare Saint-Lazare takes you behind the scenes for guided tours (upon registration).

For the 38th edition of European Heritage Days, the Gare Saint-Lazare in Paris takes you on Saturday September 18 and Sunday 19, 2021 behind the scenes. First railway station built in Paris in 1937, and the third biggest in the capital city because of its train traffic, the Gare Saint-Lazare has about 110 million travelers commuting through metros and Transilien trains.

For the European Heritage Days, enjoy free and guided tours to discover what happens backstage, as well as all the people taking care of the place and making it work. Visit the lost-step room, the boarding hall, and admire the façades and the roof of the station, all with a remarkable architecture and listed since 1984 as historic monument.
