|Second CERN-Fermilab Hadron Collider Physics Summer School|
Chamonix outing - Sunday June 10th
(Pictures taken in the Jura
On Sunday, June 10th we have arranged a full-day outing to Chamonix, in the French Alps. Buses will be available to take participants from CERN to Chamonix. For ideas on what to do in Chamonix, visit their official site, namely the chapter on summer hikes. (Please make sure you have the necessary documents for entry into France).
Those who wish to stay in Geneva will have the opportunity to visit the town with a free pass from the Geneva Public Transport, valid for the whole length of the School. The pass allows also taking small boats (called "mouettes") on the lake. Maps, timetables and routes are available in their website. The line to/from CERN is number 9 (be careful, there are two routes and only one goes to CERN).
See also what will be on in Geneva during the school (Tourism office web pages), as well as general information about the city.
