Europe, France, Paris

Rambuteau is a station on line 11 of the Paris Métro in the 3rd and 4th arrondissements in central Paris. The station opened as part of the original section of the line from Châtelet to Porte des Lilas on 28 April 1935. It is named after the Rue Rambuteau, which was named after Claude-Philibert Barthelot, Comte de Rambuteau (1781 - 1869), a senior official in the former Départment of the Seine, who established the groundwork for the fundamental transformation of Paris that Haussmann carried out under the Second Empire. Nearby are the Centre Georges Pompidou containing the Musée National d'Art Moderne, the Musée d'Art et d'Histoire du Judaïsme (museum of Jewish art and history) and the Jardin Anne-Frank (garden honouring Anne Frank).
