The three international airports most likely to be used by participants are Geneva, Zürich and Basle. The Geneva (GVA) and Zürich (ZRH) airports are recommended as there are excellent, direct train connections from these airports to Neuchâtel. Trains leave at least hourly and the journey from Geneva airport takes one hour and 20 minutes, from Zurich airport two hours. There are many budget airlines traveling to Switzerland such as EasyJet, FlyBaboo, Ryanair, Jet2. Train travel information for Switzerland can be found at www.rail.ch.
Neuchâtel is a charming town located in the northwestern part of Switzerland in a beautiful landscape of lake and mountains. Information about the region is available from http://www.neuchateltourisme.ch.
