Access from Cornavin train station

The closest tram/bus stops are called "France" (tram stop) and "Mines" (bus stop). There are two ways of getting to the Center from Cornavin train station.

1) Take bus 25  or 1 and get off at the "Mines" stop (6th stop). The bus stops right in front of the main entrance.

2) Take tram 15 and get off at the "France" stop (3th stop), walk downhill for about 100 meters (2minutes), towards the lake, then turn left on "Avenue Blanc". At the end of the street (about 300 meters), you will reach the main entrance of the building at 9 chemin des Mines.

Access from Cointrin airport

The airport is very close to downtown Geneva and transportation is very simple.
The first thing to do is to pick up a free ticket for the Geneva public transportation system ("Transports Publics Genevois - TPG") from the "Unireso" machine in the baggage collection area at the Arrival level. This Unireso ticket allows you to use public transport in Geneva free for a period of 80 minutes (1h20).
Then walk to the airport railway station and take the first train leaving. All trains stop at Geneva main station ("Gare Cornavin"), which is the first stop. The ride takes 8 minutes. At the "Gare Cornavin" railway station you will find tram 15 and buses 1 or 25 which will take you to our Center.

If you stay in a hotel or youth hostel, the fee of your stay includes the “Geneva Transport Card” which allows you to travel free all day on the public transports network. Otherwise, you can take a single ticket (3.50 CHF) which allows you to travel on public transports for 60 minutes. To by this ticket, press “Tout Genève” on the machine located at each bus / tram stop.
