Gare de Javel is a train station in the 15th arrondissement of Paris, by the Pont Mirabeau.

The station is built on a bridge over the railway situated in a cutting. It was built for the 1889 Exposition Universelle. The building is a metal structure filled in with plain bricks on the lower part and decor on the top part. Stone was used to build retainer walls along the two platforms of the station.

Javel is now a station on the RER C line of the Paris express suburban rail system.
