The Paris-Meudon Observatory can be easily reached by Public Transportation.
We recommend therefore booking a hotel in Paris and commuting each day by train.

Here you can find a List of Hotels.

There are two possibilities to access the Paris Observatory by train. We recommend the first one.

1) French railways

2) RER C

Don't forget : the way towards the Observatory is always uphill, whichever way you choose. It takes about 15 to 20 minutes to go from any of the Meudon train stations to the Observatory.

For people needing assistance a car transportaion service will be available in the morning and evening between the train stations and the observatory. The availability is limited. Please make a reservation by sending an email to

Once arrived, use the map of the Observatory.
