Châtelet’s Location and Transportation Options
Proximity to the Gare de Châtelet – Les Halles is one of the major attractions of staying in or visiting Châtelet. This RER station hosts about 500,000 passengers every weekday. One of the main reasons why it is so busy is because it is the only one to be a stop for three separate RER lines: A, B and D. Some of the places that can be visited by taking one of these trains include Disneyland Paris (line A), Charles de Gaulle Airport (line B) and the Stade de France (line D).
This busy RER station is also directly connected with a pair of Paris Métro stations: Châtelet and Les Halles. The longest that you should need to walk to transfer from a RER train to a Métro one at Châtelet is slightly less than half a mile. Métro Lines 1, 4, 7, 11 and 14 trains stop at Châtelet while Line 4 trains also pick up passengers at Les Halles. Some of the popular destinations for those taking these trains include the Arc de Triomphe (Line 1), Latin Quarter (Line 4), Palais Garnier (Line 7), Belleville (Line 11) and National Library of France (Line 14).
Other Métro stations located in this neighborhood include Louvre – Rivoli (Line 1), Pont Neuf (Line 7) and Hôtel de Ville (Lines 1 and 11).
Of course, one of this community’s primary features is its location and the ability of those staying here to easily walk to many of Paris’ most visited attractions.
Probably the most famous one is the Musée du Louvre, the world’s most visited museum; it is located immediately west of Châtelet and can be reached in about 10 minutes walking time or less from just about anywhere in Châtelet. The beautiful Jardin des Tuileries, which are situated directly west of the Louvre can also be easily reached from Châtelet.
Immediately to the south of this community are the Île de la Cité and Île Saint-Louis. Famous attractions such as the Notre-Dame Cathedral are located here. The Pont Neuf and Pont au Change offer direct access from this community to the Île de la Cité.
The Latin Quarter can be reached in about 20 minutes walking time.
Many of those who stay in Châtelet make sure to visit the Bazar de l'Hôtel de Ville (BHV), a department store that is located on the Rue de Rivoli next to this community’s eastern border.
This trendy shopping mecca sells just about anything and everything that you could ever want. Some examples of things on sale in this eight-story building include precision drills, kitchen goods, modern fashion brands, posters, art materials, storage boxes, stationary and souvenirs. BHV is a great place to pick up things for your temporary home in Paris as well as something typically Parisian before you head home.
This emporium dates to 1852 when Xavier Ruel opened a small boutique called the Bazar Parisien. It expanded exponentially over the next 18 years and would take its current name in 1871 in reference to the Hôtel de Ville, which is located across the street.
Another popular place to go shopping is the Forum des Halles, which is situated at this community’s northern border. This shopping destination welcomes more than 100,000 visitors every day and is France’s second-busiest shopping mall. Of course, the Gare de Châtelet – Les Halles being located directly above it likely helps increase those numbers to such high levels. The variety of shops located here is impressive. Some of the highlights include Esprit, Gap and Fnac.
The space above this mall used to be Paris’ central market from some point before 1183. About 10 years before the market was moved to the Parisian suburb of Rungis in 1971, the Gare de Châtelet – Les Halles was completed. The Forum des Halles then opened its doors for the first time in 1979.
The shopping center is being renovated in a project that started in 2010 and is expected to finish in 2016.
Centre Pompidou – Musée National d'Art Moderne
The Centre Pompidou is home to several attractions; its most popular one is the Musée National d'Art Moderne. In fact, France’s national museum for modern art is the ninth-most visited art museum in the world; it is second on that list amongst French art museums.
This artistic destination is home to the world’s second-largest collection of contemporary and modern art; more than 100,000 pieces that have been created by artists from nearly 100 countries are located here.
One advantage of visiting this museum over others in Paris is that it is open until 9 p.m. every day of the week except for Tuesday, and exhibitions in Galleries 1 and 2 are available for perusal all the way until 11 p.m. every Thursday. You should also note that the view of Paris from here at night is enchanting.
The Musée National d'Art Moderne was inaugurated in 1947 and moved to its current location from the Palais de Tokyo in 1977, the year that the Centre Pompidou was built.
Also housed in the Centre Pompidou are the Bibliothèque publique d'information, a large public library, and IRCAM (Institut de Recherche et Coordination Acoustique/Musique), an institute for science dedicated to sound and music.
Théâtre du Châtelet – Place du Châtelet
This classic theatre was built in the 1860s as the Théâtre Impérial du Châtelet, and it famously played host to more than 2,000 performances of “Around the World in Eighty Days” off-and-on from 1876 to 1940. It has since been used for events such as ballet performances, classical music shows and comedy concerts.
The Théâtre du Châtelet is located in the Place du Châtelet, across the square from the picturesque Théâtre de la Ville, which is the theatre that you will want to visit instead if seeing theatrical performances is your preference.
The Place du Châtelet is located in this neighborhood’s southern section, on the Seine and just north of the Île de la Cité. Another of its attractions is the beautiful Fontaine du Palmier, which is the largest fountain still standing that was built while Napoleon Bonaparte was in power in the early 1800s.
The area where the Place du Châtelet is situated is historic as well. The first known building that was located in this area was a water tower that was built here in 870 to help defend a nearby bridge between this community and the Île de la Cité. A fortress was then built here in the 1100s to help defend that island. This was later converted into a prison that became known for the tortures that were conducted there.
