How to get to the Institut Pasteur


From Paris Airports

Official Paris airports site

The journey from Paris airports to the Institut Pasteur takes between 30 and 45 minutes (if you are coming from Orly airport) and 60-90 minutes (if you are coming from Roissy-Charles de Gaulle airport)

Roissy - Charles de Gaulle airport
Tel.: +33 (0)1 48 62 22 80

One of the fastest ways to get from the Roissy Charles de Gaulle airport to the Institut Pasteur is to take the RER B train: To take this train connecting the airport with the inner City of Paris, go to the RER station (Gare) located at the airport terminal 2 , or use the free Aéroports de Paris shuttles if your flight arrives at the other terminals. Buy a RER B ticket at the vending machines (similar to Paris Metro ticket but for larger zones, ca 8-9 Euros) or ticket counters and take the RER B train to the station Denfert-Rochereau (ca. 45min) . Change there to line 6 (metro) and choose direction Etoile, Charles de Gaulle, at the 4'th station you have reached the Metro Pasteur. From there it is a 5 min walk to the Institute.

Another way to travel from the Roissy airport to the inner City of Paris from the Charles de Gaulle Airport is to take the Air France Busses (independent of your airline):

Cars Air France (01 41 56 89 00) :
€ 13 one-way (CdG - Porte Maillot - Arc de Triomphe )
€ 14 one-way (CdG - Gare de Lyon - Gare Montparnasse (situated in 10-15 min walking distance from the Institut Pasteur))

By taxi:

Paris taxis cost roughly € 60 Euro per journey Airport-Institut Pasteur.
