How to come to the Meudon and Paris Observatory ?
(Informations from http://www.obspm.fr)
To come to Meudon Observatory :
Vehicle access :
Access using the Montparnasse train station with the slow train
From the Montparnasse station in Paris, take the slow train in the direction of Sèvres Rive Gauche (less frequently in the direction of Versailles-Chantiers, Rambouillet, Chartres, etc....)
Access using the le RER (regional express train)
Take any train on the RER-C line which goes to Versailles Rive Gauche and stop off at the Meudon-Val Fleury station. Then go to Meudon, taking care not to go in the direction of Clamart (it’s best to ask you way). The walk takes about 15 to 20 minutes, and the hill is fairly steep.
Access using the Metro + bus
In either case, go up the hill to the park (about 5 min walk).
