CERN 3 Nights
VISIT THE WORLD CENTRE OF PARTICLE PHYSICS
Let your students discover Geneva and visit CERN!
Opened in 1954, CERN, or Conseil Européen pour la Recherche Nucléaire, to give it its full title, is the world’s largest particle physics laboratory.
Did you know that it was also the birthplace of the World Wide Web, where the first web page went live in 1991?
Geneva – the world’s smallest metropolis
Let our experienced tour operators create the right itinerary for your educational group. Your visit to CERN will be based in Geneva, Switzerland’s second city. Located on Lake Geneva, it is also home to a variety of agency of the United Nations, as well as the International Red Cross.
After flying into Geneva, you will spend a day at CERN, taking part in one of their three-hour guided tours. Further visits include the UN, the museums of Natural History and History of Science, as well as a spectacular boat trip on Lake Geneva, the largest lake in Switzerland. This trip is absolutely fascinating to both physicists and non-scientists alike.
