Gare de l’Est has its roots in the golden age of the railways. The original building opened in 1847 and the current west wing dates back to then. It has welcomed trains running from Paris to Strasbourg ever since.
In 1854 the east wing was built to cope with a boom in rail travel. The station now whisks passengers by high-speed TGV train to major cities in central Europe – from Zurich to Munich and Vienna.
