Dear Participants,

Please find below useful information to prepare your stay in Geneva!

List of suggested accommodations in Geneva

Geneva is quite a small city and all the accommodation options on the list are within easy reach of the Institute (max. 30 minutes by bus or tram). We nevertheless advise you to ensure early pre-booking of your accommodation since Geneva is a busy city.
