Charles Michels is a station on line 10 of the Paris Metro in the 15th arrondissement.


The station was opened on July 13, 1913 as part of the original section of line 8 between Beaugrenelle (now Charles Michels) and Opéra. On July 29, 1937, line 10 was extended from Duroc to La Motte-Picquet - Grenelle and the section of line 8 between La Motte-Picquet - Grenelle and Porte d'Auteuil, including Beaugrenelle was transferred to line 10.

The station was named Beaugrenelle station, after Beaugrenelle Place, the former name of Place Charles Michels. "Beaugrenelle" (beautiful Grenelle) was a name given by property developers in the district of Grenelle during its urbanisation. In 1945, it was renamed after Charles Michels (1903–1941), who had been elected Député for the 15th arrondissement of Paris by the Popular Front; He was taken hostage and shot by the Nazis.
