Bir-Hakeim is an elevated station of the Paris Métro serving line 6 in the Boulevard de Grenelle in the 15th arrondissement. It is situated on the left bank of the Pont de Bir-Hakeim over the Seine and is the closest station to the Eiffel Tower. After being build in 1906 as “Grenelle”, it was renamed together with the bridge to commemorate the World War II battle of Bir Hakeim. The signs on the station walls now say “Bir-Hakeim — Tour Eiffel”. The station is above the RER C line and the station Champ de Mars – Tour Eiffel is within walking distance.
