CERN and Einstein Tour

CERN and Einstein Tour for Schools

From £395pp

Geneva is home to the world's biggest and most respected scientific centre, CERN, which offers guided tours and visits to two fascinating exhibitions. This is a truly outstanding visit for Science students and gives them an insight into the complex research methods used by the scientists and the history of this hugely important research centre. 

CERN is not the only physics reference Switzerland has - Albert Einstein spent his formative years here. A day trip to Bern is a very enjoyable experience, and includes visits to the Einstein House and Einstein Museum.

As a final touch, some schools choose to visit the striking European headquarters of the United Nations, which offers tours to discover the UN's global historical significance. You can reflect on the impacts of world humanitarian organisations at the International Red Cross and Red Crescent Museum. You can also visit Swiss food manufacturers and have fun sampling the local flavours!
