The station is built across the entrance to the Paris-Arsenal port (seen here from across the Seine).

Quai de la Rapée is a station of the Paris Métro, serving line 5.

Unusually, this station is located at ground level, and is open-air in plan; however, the station plunges abruptly into tunnels at either end. It was submerged during the historic flood of 1910.

The name, previously Pont d'Austerlitz and Mazas, refers to the Quai de la Rapée, named for the Sieur de la Rapée, commissioner of war under Louis XV.
