Paris 24 hour Post Office – The Louvre

(UPDATED- August 8 2017 ?- the post office is now closed – you must go to 16 Rue Etienne Marcel 75002)

Post offices that remain open all hours of the day in Paris are rare. Many postal services are closed after 6pm and not open on weekends. Except the Louvre Post Office: it’s a massive central post to all of France. They are open (almost) 24 Hrs non-stop in Paris (see photo with hours below). They seem to be more efficient than the regular post offices and have more staff on the floor. They also have at least 6 automatic shipping machines ( which allows you to change the language to English for the instructions).

They have a Bank and a Western Union money transfer section inside.

If you need mail or a package urgently sent this is your best bet. I can’t even tell you guys how many times I rode over late at night after realizing I’ve forgotten to mail stuff during the day!

Located in the central Etienne Marcel / Montorgeuil area of Paris. Please note: It is not located in the Louvre Museum!

La Poste du Lourve
Address: 52 rue du louvre, 75001, Paris France
