Rambuteau Metro station, a colourful station

Rambuteau Metro station serves the Pompidou Centre

Rambuteau Metro station was opened in 1935 and named after Claude-Philibert Barthelot de Rambuteau.

Prefect of Paris from 1833 to 1848, Rambuteau opened the street that bears his name.

The station was renamed Rambuteau - Centre Georges Pompidou when the national centre of Art and Culture was built.

Rambuteau is on Ligne 11. This line connects Mairie des Lilas in the northeast of Paris to Châtelet in the heart of the capital.

A colourful station

The station was renovated in 2002.

Its decoration is as colourful as the Centre Pompidou, but in much softer tones.

Direct lighting is standard, but the indirect lighting consists of mauve, yellow, green and blue lights that reflect on the white tiles of the vaulted ceiling.

This simple, yet attractive decor, creates a soothing effect.
