When the easter holiday arrived, I decided to go vacation to Switzerland. From Gare de L’est to Switzerland by TGV. The TGV and ICE services to north-eastern France, Luxembourg, southern Germany and Switzerland. Located at 5, rue du 8 Mai 1945, 10 thh arrondissement

Gare de l'Est was opened in 1849 in and was changed from Gare de Strasbourg to Gare de l'Est in 1854. The western wing, the original building, is in axis with the Boulevard de Strasbourg. The statues represent the cities of Strasbourg by Philippe-Henri Lemaire, and Verdun by Varenne.

Station on Paris metro: Gare de l’est
