Discover the Bercy district - Paris 12

Located along the right bank of the Seine, the Bercy district is the 47th administrative district of the city of Paris and belongs to the 12th arrondissement of the capital. Bordered by the Seine on one side and the Rue de Charenton on the other, it stretches from Rue Villiot to the Pont National.



Originally, Bercy was a separate commune. It was dissolved in 1859 and its land was divided between the towns of Charenton and Paris. Close to the Seine, the district of Bercy was a working-class district where goods transported by river arrived. It was greatly restructured in the 1980s.
