Travel by plane

The closest airport is Paris Orly; from there the Orlyval train shuttle brings you to the RER B station Antony, about 30 minutes away from Orsay.

International flights tend to land in Paris Charles-de-Gaulle (CDG). It’s about 1 hour and 20 minutes away from Orsay, on the other end of the RER B line.

To get those prices, please send along the reservation number 88697 and the project name OpenDreamKit.

Reminder: all OpenDreamKit participants are expected to pay their room (by using their own OpenDreamKit funding). We will pay only for those who are not OpenDreamKit members. For this reason, all OpenDreamKit members are asked to BOOK THEIR OWN room.


Breakfast will be provided at the hotel. Lunch for Wednesday-Friday will be provided at the university’s restaurants. There will be a social dinner on Wednesday evening. For the other meals, there are quite a few restaurants at walking distance, in Orsay or Bures sur Yvette. If you like Vietnamese, Asia is close to the hotel and a good pick.
