There is no restriction on the use of cameras and camcorders. Souvenirs of your visit to CERN and various items of educational documentation may be purchased at the shop at the Reception in Building 33 between 8:15 a.m. and 5:45 p.m., from Mondays to Friday and between 9:00 a.m. and 5:15 p.m., on Saturday . The shop accepts credit cards (VISA, MasterCard and Maestro), Swiss francs and Euros.
- There is no possibility to access the underground installations of the lab.
- Please note that the tour itineraries take you into buildings housing scientific and technical equipment. For safety reasons, high-heeled shoes or open-toed shoes, flip-flops or sandals are not permitted.
- School groups of minors visiting the site must be accompanied by one adult per 12 students.
- No smoking is allowed in any part of the Laboratory.
- The tours may be strenuous for some visitors, particularly for the elderly, pregnant women and the handicapped (e.g. steep stairways).
- Visitors confined to a wheelchair must give prior warning to the Visits Service.
CERN offers tours for groups of 12-48 persons. All tours are free of charge. For groups up to a size of 24 persons, CERN offers bus transport for the tour. Bigger groups must provide their own bus, which will be used for all journeys during the visit. Private vehicles may not be used for the tour.
Tours are organized from Monday to Saturday and start at 9h00 and 14h00. Each tour lasts about 3 hours and comprises an introduction followed by a film, a visit to one of the experiments and/or to an accelerator located at the surface. Please note that for safety reasons children under 8 years of age are not admitted. The official languages are English and French. On request, we may be able to arrange tours in other languages.
