Travel Information
How to get from Paris Airport Charles de Gaulle (CDG) to Metz?

There are two ways:

1. There is fast train (TGV) from Paris to the 'Lorraine TGV' train station, which is still 25 km from Metz. If it is a direct train then it makes the 340 km in about 1H10 min. For each train arriving to this station, there is a bus which takes you to the railway station of Metz, in about 30 min. The price of this bus trip might be already included in your train ticket, so show your train ticket to the bus driver. It might be not, then the price of the bus will be about 7 €. Arriving to the railway station of Metz with the bus, you are almost in the center of the city. You can walk to your hotel if you do not have heavy luggages.

2. You can arrive to Metz railway station from Paris by fast train (TGV) directly if you take the TGV from the 'Gare de l'Est' of Paris. This railway station is not near to the CDG airport but you can reach it from CDG in about 1H in the following way:
Arriving to CDG, you look for the metro 'RER' and take the line B up to the 'Gare de Nord'. It takes about 30-40 min to get there. From there you either walk to the 'Gare de l'Est' (it is indicated and only 5 min walk but you have to come up to the surface and find it), or you take the metro line 4 for only one stop. If you manage all this, the TGV will take you to Metz in only 1H20 min.
