Buttes Chaumont is a station on 7bis of the Paris Métro in the 19th arrondissement, on the Avenue Simon Bolivar, near the Parc des Buttes Chaumont, which it is named after.

While the line that it is on opened as a branch of line 7 from Louis Blanc to Pré Saint-Gervais on 18 January 1911, the opening of the station was delayed by 13 months to 13 February 1912 due to the difficulty of its construction in a backfilled quarry. As a result the station is built with arches over each of the tracks to strengthen the station box. On 3 December 1967 this branch was separated from line 7, becoming line 7bis.
