Strasbourg — Saint-Denis is a station of the Paris Métro, serving line 4, line 8, and line 9. Formerly called Boulevard Saint-Denis, its current name refers to the streets of Rue Saint-Denis and the Boulevard de Strasbourg.
The section of lines 8 and 9 from just east of Richelieu - Drouot to west of République was built under the Grand Boulevards, which replaced the Louis XIII wall and is in soft ground, which was once the course of the Seine. The lines are built on two levels, with line 8 on the higher level and line 9 in the lower level. The platforms are at the sides and the box containing the lines and supporting the road above is strengthened by a central wall between the tracks.
The station was opened on May 5, 1908, two weeks after the opening of the first section of line 4 from Porte de Clignancourt to Châtelet on 21 April 1908. The line 8 platforms opened on 5 May 1931 with the extension of the line from Richelieu - Drouot to Porte de Charenton. The line 9 platforms were opened on 10 December 1933 with the extension of the line from Richelieu - Drouot to Porte de Montreuil.
