Passenger Terminal Layout at Charles de Gaulle Airport, Inter-Terminal Shuttes, and CDG Terminal details:

NOTE:   Be prepared to spend time in line at  Immigration /Customs processing - even though extra facilities are available, the few staffers there are in no rush to serve the passengers and service can be dismal.  Airport reviews have consistently complained about it & not much seems to have changed in recent years to address these grievances.  On the plus site CDG has an excellent Terminal map and its flight transfer site is commendable. 

CDG's Airport terminal complex consists of Terminals 1 & 3 (T1 & T3) located at the north side (but 1 km apart),  and  the T2 satellites at the South Side:
