Hotel-de-Ville Metro station’s cultural-themed decor

Hotel-de-Ville Metro station is on Ligne 1, the first line of the Metro Parisien which was inaugurated in 1900.

The station serves the town-hall of the City of Paris, the seat of municipal institutions since 1357, hence its name.

Its decoration, entirely dedicated to the Hotel-de-Ville, includes a superb mosaic representing the coat of arms of the City of Paris at the centre of each platform.

You'll notice that even the seats are in the colours of the City of Paris, blue and red.

A series of posters and panels that relate anecdotes linked to the development of the city and transport adorn the walls.

These were recently covered with ceramic tiles of different sizes to differentiate the station from the others.

Finally, the name of the station is inscribed in blue letters on a plexiglass board that stands out from the traditional white on a blue background.

Hotel-de-Ville Metro station, a major transport hub

Hotel-de-Ville is in the heart of historic Paris.

It's therefore one of the city’s major transportation interchange for Metro and RER lines that serve Paris and Greater Paris.

It has 6 accesses (Rue de Rivoli, Rue Lobau, Rue du Renard, Rue de la Coutellerie, Avenue Victoria and of course Hotel-de-Ville).
