Longjumeau (French pronunciation: ​) is a commune in the southern suburbs of Paris, France. It is located 18.2 km (11.3 mi) from the center of Paris.

Inhabitants of Longjumeau are known as Longjumellois (French pronunciation: ​).


Longjumeau is served by two stations on Paris RER line C: Longjumeau, Gravigny – Balizy and Chilly Mazarin RER, which are peaceful due to the low transit.



Longjumeau is the setting for the opera-comique Le postillon de Longjumeau by Adolphe Adam where it is presented as an early 19th-century rural community. The opera was first performed in Paris at the Opéra-Comique on 13 October 1836. Performances followed in London at the St. James Theatre on 13 March 1837, and in New Orleans at the Théâtre d'Orléans on 19 April 1838.

Longjumeau is twinned with Pontypool in South Wales, UK.
