Goncourt is a station on line 11 of the Paris Métro in the 10th and 11th arrondissements

The station opened as part of the original section of the line from Châtelet to Porte des Lilas on 28 April 1935. It is named after the Rue des Goncourt. The street was named after the writers Edmond de Goncourt (1822–1896) and his brother Jules (1830–1870). Edmond de Goncourt left funds to create the Académie Goncourt which awards the Prix Goncourt literary prize.
