Austerlitz Train Station Overnight to Barcelona

We are going to book the overnight train from Barcelona to Paris staying in one of the private cabins. We arrive on the Eurostar earlier in the day so are wondering the best way of getting to Austerlitz station with alot of luggage and how much a taxi would be, is there anything to see or do en-route and if Austerlitz station has a 'lounge' or any facilities to use for passengers boarding the overnight train of if there is anywhere we can store our bags in this station while we go for a wander.

Is there anything nearby of interest??

Taxi from Gare du Nord to Gare d'Austerlitz should be around 20€. The station has luggage lockers and a waiting room.

There are lots of places of interest nearby, please look at a map. You could for example walk along the Seine to Ile de la Cité and visit Nôtre-Dame (25min. walk).

If you don't want to walk far, the Jardin des Plantes and the museum(s) of natural history are across the street from Austerlitz.

Thanks, that is helpful we will get a taxi then leave our luggage in storage. Are the lockers big, oiur suitcases are very large?

Any idea on if there is a lounge or facilities for travellers using overnight train?

There are lockers of different sizes, the biggest ones are quite big. This virtual visit will give you an idea of the station:

If you put "consignes" in the search box, you will see the lockers.
