I am not sure I understand the question. Are you wanting instructions on how to find the RER station in CDG airport?
It would also help if you described your destination in a little more detail.
On the basis of what you state in your message, the only answer I have is get on the RER at CDG airport and get off at either St. Michael Notre Dame or Luxembourg depending on where you want to go in the St. Germain area.

Here is the details: Fly from ord to cdg on Air France.
I am not sure which terminal Air France flys into from Chicago.
So how do I get from my terminal to RER.
Is it Rer B? I am staying at a hotel on Rue Jacob. Closest metro is St. Germain Des Pres.
How long do I stay on the Rer? Exit St. Michel to Metro line ?
I hope that helps, PJ

Take a taxi and let your concerns behind.

PJ, it's a piece of cake. I don't fly Air France, but I think you will arrive at Terminal 2. The RER station is right downstairs. Even if that was not the case, you can still take the ADP shuttle between terminals easily.

To find your route, use this handy site:


Happy Contrails!

Air France flies into T2, usually Hall C or Hall F for international flights. The RER station is between C and F and is fairly easy to find.

Often large aircraft coming into T2 stop on the tarmac and passengers are bused into passport and customs. If quite a few flights arrive at the same time, there may be line at passport control. When we landed at CDG last month, customs was a cursory wave through.

You should get off of the RER at St. Michel Notre Dame and change to Metro line #4, direction Port d'Orleans.

The St. Michel - Notre Dame station is fairly large, so you may have a fair walk to your connection.
(At least that is how it seems to me.)
If you are not burdened with luggage, it should not be that bad, however.

RER line B is the only line that goes to CDG as far as I know.
good luck
