​ACCESSIBILITY 

A major asset of Geneva is its excellent location and easy access by all means of transport. 

Geneva airport (GVA)

​Geneva has an international airport offering direct regular flights to more than 130 international destinations.

The terminal has all the facilities a traveler could wish for. It is designed for speedy and simple check-in and has essential services such as change, information and restaurants at strategic points.

​Crossroads of Europe: by highway or rail

Geneva’s favoured geographical proposition makes it a natural focal point for the international traveler. Road and rail facilities radiate from Geneva to provide rapid access to the rest of Switzerland and Europe. 

Comfort and convenience by rail

The Swiss National Railroad system offers hourly links to Lausanne, Bern, Basel, Zurich and the regions of Vaud and Valais.

There are also Inter-city trains to France, Spain, Italy and Germany.

Highway Hub for Central and Western Europe

​In recent years, highway construction within Switzerland and in neighbouring countries has turned Geneva into a highway intersection of Europe.

A branch of this same highway offers rapid link from Geneva to the South of France and from Geneva to the West of France. To the North and east, the Swiss highway system provides fast direct connections to Germany and Eastern Europe.

​​Getting to the Congress Venue

The Palexpo site is located at a railway and road traffic hub in the very heart of Europe, just a 10-minute walk from Geneva Airport and its railway station and a 15-minute bus ride from the city centre. Trains operating at regular intervals take only 10 minutes to run between the airport and the centre.​

​​​By Car
No fewer than 2,800 parking spaces are available to visitors and exhibitors directly on the Palexpo site. The P12 car park also has designated disabled parking.​

By Bus/Tram

By Train 

The train is an easy and hassle-free way of getting to Palexpo, allowing you to avoid the Geneva traffic jams. Geneva Airport Station is just a three-minute walk from Palexpo Exhibition Hall 7.
