Charles de Gaulle Airport Tour

By Harriet De Bari

Charles De Gaulle Airport

 

Recently I visited Charles De Gaulle airport for a short tour. I have written about what CDG has to offer. If you are flying to CDG in the future, have a read of my experience, for tips and things to do to pass your time there.

 

Location

Charles de Gaulle airport is situated 25km north-west of Paris’ city centre. Getting to the city via taxi costs around €50 and takes about 45 minutes.  A cheaper option is the RER train straight to the city for €9, and it takes around an hour. I visited the south-east of the airport, in terminal 2E and halls K, L, and M.

 

What I Loved

My favourite thing CDG had to over was the Air France Lounge in terminal 2E, Hall M. If you have the extra money to spare, it’s worth every penny. Entry costs €25 -€45, and it gets you a range of benefits. The lounge itself is a relaxing area away from the busy terminals, free wi-fi (faster than the airport’s Wi-Fi), food and refreshments are a treat when waiting on your flight. My favourite part of the lounge was the free spa treatments by Clarins, I got a facial and left feeling fresh which is a rare feeling to have while travelling!

Activities & Places to See

• Try the free louge in terminal 2E, Hall L. I found it very peaceful and relaxing, it’s a great free alternative to the Air France lounge. The lounge has a children’s play area and a library with books to read free of charge. 

• The Sheraton 4-Star hotel in terminal 2, is gorgeous! If you’re in need of a proper nap then this could be an option for you. 

•Visit the ‘Espace Musees’, a free museum displaying French artwork. I thought it was very cool and unique. It’s such a calming activity to do while waiting on a flight. I’ve never seen anything like that in other airports. 

 

Shopping

Terminal 2E Hall K is full of the most luxurious brands found in Paris, let alone Charles De Gaulle airport. With Chanel, Dior and Gucci, CDG has it all. Of course, these shops are gorgeous, but very expensive. There are plenty of alternative shops for souvenirs throughout the airport.

Overall, Charles De Gaulle airport is very beautifully decorated and well organized. With nearly 70 million passengers annually this airport caters to all, especially economy travellers. The transport across the airport is fantastic, I personally found the train between halls K, L and M very fast and made getting around so easy. There are so many places to relax, eat, drink, shop and pass time, there’s simply no reason you can’t enjoy your time in this modern airport.
