40 Rue Eugène Jacquet,
59700 Marcq-en-Barœul

Getting there

By train 🚄

From Paris, on mornings and evenings, and in each direction, the Paris-Lille TGV leaves every 30 minutes. We strongly recommend the 7:16 AM to get there early enough to fully enjoy the breakfast, or the 7:46 AM to be right on time for the first talk.

Prices for the train varies between €15 (if you buy tickets early) and €90 for last minute bookings.

When you get to Lille’s train station, count 25 minutes (tramway + walking) to get to the CITÉ des Échanges.

By tramway 🚋 and on foot 🚶‍♂️🚶‍♀️

The closest station to the Cité, in walking distance, is Acacias (Marcq-en-Barœul). From Lille’ train stations (both stations are really close), take the tramway to Eurotéléport / Roubaix, which should take 12-15 minutes.

To get the intinerary, you can head to Ilevia or see the tramway map (PDF).

Once you get to Acacias, cross the residential area by taking the Avenue des Acacias (first one on your right). At the end of the Avenue, take a right to Rue Eugène Jaquet. Reaching house n°40, a sign “Entreprises et Cités” shows the entrance to the Cité — enter the facility and follow the main walkway to the Cité des Échanges.
