Gare de Paris Bercy, officially Gare de Paris Bercy Bourgogne – Pays d’Auvergne, is one of the 7 mainline railway station termini in Paris (France). It handles about 4.3 million passengers annually according to the estimates of the SNCF, making it the least busy mainline station in Paris.

The station is located in the 12th arrondissement, on the right bank of the river Seine, in the east of Paris. It is located a short distance from Gare de Lyon and serves as an annex of the larger station, helping to relieve the traffic in the busy station. The station is on the Paris–Marseille railway and hosts Intercités long-distance trains and TER Bourgogne-Franche-Comté regional trains. Trains depart from six platforms with tracks labeled with letters from P to V (tracks A to L are located inside Gare de Lyon).

The station is named after the Bercy neighborhood where it is located, and the subtitle name refers to the Bourgogne (English: Burgundy) and Auvergne regions that are served by trains departing from this station. The station is close to the Bercy Accor Arena, a short distance from the Gare de Bercy–Seine intercity bus terminal, and offers connections to Line 6 and Line 14 of the Paris Métro at the Bercy Métro station.

Opened in 1977, the station was designed to specialize in auto-trains which transport travelers along with their vehicles. The service, typically operating overnight, were also known as “train auto-couchettes” (TAC) because passengers rode in couchette-style sleeping cars. Auto-train services were operated between Paris Bercy to Avignon-Sud, Marseille-Saint-Charles, Toulon, FréjusSaint-Raphaël and Nice-Ville stations.
