Champigny-sur-Marne is a commune in the southeastern suburbs of Paris, France. It is located 12.5 km (7.8 mi) from the center of Paris.
Champigny-sur-Marne was originally called simply Champigny. The name Champigny ultimately comes from Medieval Latin Campaniacum, meaning “estate of Campanius”, a Gallo-Roman landowner. In 1897 the name of the commune officially became Champigny-sur-Marne (meaning “Champigny upon Marne”), in order to distinguish it from other communes of France also called Champigny.
Champigny-sur-Marne is served by Les Boullereaux – Champigny station on Paris RER line E.
Champigny-sur-Marne is also served by Champigny station on Paris RER line A. This station, although administratively located on the territory of the neighboring commune of Saint-Maur-des-Fossés, lies immediately across the Marne River from the town center of Champigny-sur-Marne and is thus used by people in Champigny.
