For European Heritage Days on Saturday September 17 and Sunday 18, 2022, the Gare Saint-Lazare takes you behind the scenes for guided tours (upon registration).

For the 39th edition of European Heritage Days, the Gare Saint-Lazare in Paris takes you on Saturday September 17 and Sunday 18, 2022 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.


  • 1 morning tour: from 11 a.m. to 1 p.m.
  • 1 afternoon tour: from 3 p.m. to 5 p.m.

Careful, to participate in these guided tours, do not forget you must book ahead of your visit. Furthermore, some parts of the train station are not easy to access. The Gare Saint-Lazare therefore does not guarantee to go to every places if you have difficulties to move. And for your safety, closed and flat shoes are compulsory.
