Paris Austerlitz (Austerlitz Station) is one of the six large terminus railway stations in Paris. It is situated on the left bank of the River Seine in the southeastern part of the city, in the 13th arrondissement. It is the origin for the Paris-Bordeaux and Paris-Toulouse main lines, but since the introduction of the TGV Atlantique — served by the Gare Montparnasse — Austerlitz has lost most of its long-distance southwestern services. It is used by some 25 million passengers annually, about half the number passing through Montparnasse.
The Elipsos Train Hotels (Trenhotel) operated jointly between RENFE and SNCF operate from here to Madrid & Barcelona. They generally leave around 7pm local time and travel overnight arriving the next morning at their destinations.
The station takes its name from the Czech town Slavkov u Brna (German: Austerlitz). Napoleon I defeated the superior numbers of the Third Coalition on 2 December 1805 there in the Battle of Austerlitz. (Text Source: Wikipedia, the Free Encyclopedia)
