About Parc Astérix

Based on the comic book series ‘Astérix’ by Albert Uderzo and René Goscinny, Parc Astérix Paris is the second biggest theme park in France (after Disneyland Paris, of course!).
Discover five different worlds from Gaul; The Roman Empire, Greece, The Vikings, Travel Through Time, and the new Egyptian world inspired by Caesar and Cleopatra, and enjoy fun with all the family at an amazing 42 attractions within the park! 
Book your entry tickets with Klook to get instant confirmation and skip the queue privileges by entering directly with your voucher.

How to get there

Private transfer from Paris 

Choose between a business car (up to 3 passengers), economy car (up to 4 passengers), or minibus (up to 7 passengers) for your own private transfer to Parc Astérix from Paris. This meet-and-greet transfer service will be instantly confirmed when you book so you don’t have to stress about finding other ways to start your fun day out together! 
Also, while COVID-19 adjustments are still being followed, all Klook transfers require customers and drivers to wear a mask, and other protective measures will be in place to ensure you & your family, and our drivers, are as safe as can be.

By Car - parking

 Parc Astérix is just 35km north of Paris (Porte de la Chapelle) on the A1 motorway towards Lille, take the direct exit for Parc Astérix between exits 7 and 8 - the drive usually takes around 30mins and is an easy drive, plus there are no tolls on the motorway between Paris and the park!
Once you arrive a parking fee of €15 will be payable.

By Bus

From just €20 for an adult return, you can get the bus to Parc Astérix from near the Louvre - to get to the coach park simply;
  • Get to the Metro station: Palais-Royal - Louvre Museum lines 1 and 7
  • From Rue de Rivoli, "Carrousel du Louvre" entrance, go down to Level 1, "Restaurant du Monde" level
  • Walk past the restaurants and go down to Level -1 (escalator next to McDonald's)
  • Then turn left, take the stairs to the Bus Car Park (Level -3), and look for the "ASTERIX TOTEM"
When you’re done in the park for the day, to return to Paris, the Parc Astérix shuttle will leave at 6.30pm from the coach park at the entrance to Parc Astérix (follow the signs for “Navette Parc Astérix”).
