English version

The FUDCon Paris wiki page already contains quite a number of information but I thought it might be nice to repeat them once again here.

So here is a list of useful links/information

Some links

Last minute info

If you are arriving late (after 23:00) from Charle De Gaule (CDG) airport, there are work on the train line, so you might have to take a bus instead of the train to the center.

This is also valid, if you have to take a train late (after 23:00) on Monday evening to CDG airport.

In both case, the connection between the normal trains and the bus substituting is done at the station Aulnay-sous-Bois.

The official documentation says:

Due to work, there will be NO trains between Aulnay-sous-Bois and
Charles De Gaulle Airport on Monday to Friday from 23:05 to the
last train, until november 2012. Trains will be replaced by a direct
bus service.

To CDG Airport : departs from Aulnay-sous-Bois station (23:20 > 00:45).
To Paris : departs from Roissypôle - CDG Airport bus station (23h05 > 23:55).

Allow an additional 15 to 20 minutes for the journey.

Couple more of information

Subway station

  • The closest subway station from the hotel is Corentin Cariou, subway line 7
  • The FUDCon on Saturday is closest to the George V station, line 1
  • The FUDCon on Sunday and Monday is closest to the Porte de la Villette station, line 7 (but if you are at the IBIS hotel, you might as well walk to there)

  • The Effeil tower can be accessed from the stations:
    • Bir-Hakeim, line 6
    • Trocadéro, line 6 and 9
  • The Louvre museum is at the station Tuileries, line 1
  • Notre-Dame can be accessed from the stations:
    • Cité, line 4
    • Saint-Michel, line 4
  • The Sacré-Coeur (one of the nicest view of Paris) can be accessed from the stations:
    • Anvers, line 2
    • Abbesses, line 12
  • The Champs-Élysées can be accessed from the stations:
    • Charles de Gaulle - Étoile, line 1, 2 and 6
    • George V, line 1
    • Franklin D. Roosevelt, line 1 and 9
    • Champs-Élysées - Clemenceau, line 1 and 13


  • Is there a Android app for the transport?
    • The RATP provides an Android app on the market but basically only the main maps are accessible offline, no trip planner, no maps of the surrounding of a stations, no map of a subway/bus line and no traffic info (that's not so surprising though)
    • I found another app Metro 01 (Paris) which seems to do trip planner offline.
  • Where can I get a map of the transportation network?
    • I gave a link to a PDF of this map but in case you cannot/forgot to print it, be aware that every information desk at every station can provide you with a paper version.

I hope this can help you to visit and enjoy your time before and after the FUDCon (not during hé ;-)).
