Every year, CERN welcomes more than 300,000 visitors from all over the world (including around 4,500 from Belgium).
But it is also possible to book a group virtual visit.
Geneva is particularly well connected to Belgium by air, with several daily flights from Brussels, and by rail via Paris or Lyon.
All CERN visits are free of charge.
