Laumière ([lomjɛʁ]) is a station of the Paris Métro, serving line 5 in the 19th arrondissement.


The station is located under Avenue Jean-Jaurès, at the corner of Avenue de Laumière.


It opens on October 12, 1942, during the extension of Line 5 from Gare du Nord to Eglise de Pantin. The name refers to the Avenue de Laumière, named for Xavier Jean-Marie Clément Vernhet de Laumière (1812-1863), a general who was killed in the French intervention in Mexico in the 19th century.

It saw 4,556,699 travelers pass through the station in 2018, which places it at the 110th position of metro stations for its attendance.[1]

Passenger Services[edit]


The station has three entrances, two in the front of 34 and 43 Avenue de Laumière and another that serves as an exit only on the odd side of Avenue Jean-Jaures.

Laumière is a standard configuration station with two platforms separated by metro tracks under an elliptical roof. The decoration is Andreu-Motte style green, with two light bars, flat tile benches and Motte seating in the same colour. In contrast, the archways and outlets of the corridors as well as the walls and the vault, are covered with white bevelled ceramic tiles. The advertising frames are a faience honey color and the name of the station is also faience in the style of the original Compagnie du chemin de fer métropolitain de Paris (CMP). The name of the station is inscribed in faience in the style of the original CMP and the advertising frames are in faience brown and with simple patterns, topped with the letter "M". These same executives are present only in seven other stations of the Paris metro and in particular the two following stations of Line 5, Jaurès and Stalingrad. With the latter two, they are the only two stations married in the Andreu-Motte style and these particular advertising frames.

Bus connections[edit]

The station is served by Line 60 of the RATP Bus Network and at night, by lines N13, N41 and N45 of the Noctilien network.
