From Châtelet to Nation or Montparnasse, this is what the metro stations of Paris look like, if you look at them in perspective. The result is quite dizzying.

While traversing the labyrinthine mazes of the Paris metro in the furious tumult of rush hour, have you ever wondered about what is behind the scenes? What can all the tunnels look like, for all these lines that intersect and intertwine in a deafening but smoothly conducted hodgepodge?

Your secret dream has come true: a Catalan site, accessible at this address, references the 3D maps of the main hubs of the Paris metro. It was the Urban Traveler Twitter account that drew attention to this address, in a tweet posted on June 6, 2022. This is an engineer-led project Albert Guillaumes Marcer.

The website is in Catalan, but it is still very easy to use. From the home page, simply scroll down to the “Galeria d’estacions” section (station gallery). In the “Tria ciutat” tab (choose the city), scroll down until you select Paris. Then, on the right, in “Tria estacio” (choose the station), choose the station for which you want to view the 3D map, which will then be displayed at the bottom.

There are a good forty stations available, among the most iconic, such as Châtelet-Les Halles, Les Invalides, Place d’Italie, Saint-Lazare, Strasbourg Saint-Denis, Charles de Gaulle-Étoile, Madeleine.

These 3D maps also allow you to better understand the path you take when you take the Paris metro. For example, if you feel like you are going down the stairs for an eternity when you take the 9 at Strasbourg-Saint Denis, the station map shows that the stop is indeed very “low”.

The site also allows you to explore the metros of other cities, such as Rome, Copenhagen, Berlin, Barcelona. The creator intends to add those of the Marseille metro soon.
