dear All,

i am planning to go to Geneva and from Geneva to CERN and from CERN to Broc-fabriuqe ( callier , Nestle Chocolate factory ).
My question is can i do this both the things on the same day. Can i take a train from CERN to factory or any other route from CERN to Chocolate factory or do i have to come back to Geneva to go to Chocolate factory

Thanks

Shraddha

Hi Shraddha. Whether a combination is possible, depends on how much time you want to spend at each location. If you want to travel to Broc by Chocolate Train, please note that only one such train leaves each day. Regular trains will get you there as well though. Yes, the route from CERN to Broc is via Geneva. Did you use the timetable, as advised in previous answers, to find information your trip?

Hi Modernnika Thanks for your reply. yes i had tried out finding the answer through timbetable. If train journey is possible from CERN to Broc please tell me the station names which are shortest journey. When i checked on the timetable i had received following message.

Dear customer,

Sorry! No connections have been found that correspond to your request. It is possible that the requested service does not operate from or to the places you stated on the requested date of travel (e.g. because some services do not stop at certain places on weekends). You can check this by viewing the the arrivals/departures tables for Meyrin, CERN and Broc-Village .

Thank you.

Code: H890

Hello Shraddha! Did you enter several times and dates in the timetable to get a good idea of possible connections? I was able to find proper tram connections, so I'm not quite sure why you got this message. If you choose a connection from the timetable and click the 'plus' symbol, you'll get to see the option 'show intermediate stops'. That will display all stops along the way. This page on a visit to CERN will be helpful too.

Hi shraddha. The timetable indicates that all trips from Cern to Broc have to be made via Geneva.

Do you mean a trip from CERN to Broc by road? That's not very obvious, as trams and trains form the main connection by public transportation.
