The Bir-Hakeim station is located on western Paris' Left Bank in 15e. It serves metro line 6 in fare zone 1.
The station was first called Quai de la Grenelle when it opened in 1906 all the way up until 1949 when it was renamed after the Battle of Bir Hakeim.
Bir-Hakeim has many notable landmarks close by. The bridge with the same name that crosses the Seine is considered a historic site. It is also the closest metro station the Eiffel Tower. The site known as Velodrome d'hiver is now know for cycling competitions but was sadly the place the German Gestapo held French Jews before they were deported to concentration camps.
