By bus

From Annecy town centre

Our map indicates the location of some bus stops around the train station (Gare SNCF/Gare Routière) from which you can take a bus to reach LAPTh. 

You should take either bus No 4 or No 2 (direction "Campus") and get off at the very last stop (Campus). Beware that some of the No 2 buses that go all the way up to "Campus"  but stop at "Vignères" The journey takes about 20 mins from the town centre. Buses run rather frequently (every 10-15 mins), except during the  school holidays when the wait can be longer and on Sundays. The last bus service is at 8pm on weekdays.

The LAPTh / LAPP buildings are located across the road from the bus stop, see here,  opposite the roundabout with a copper accelerating structure from the LEP era.   Walk, past the barriers, all the way up to the entrance.

You can download the Annecy bus timetables  and get more information on the Annecy local bus service from the official site SIBRA.

Walking from/to the City Centre would take about 45mins.

From Annecy-le-Vieux

For those staying in Annecy-le-Vieux, you may reach the laboratory either on foot or by bus. Here is a map of Annecy-le-Vieux.

You can then catch bus lines No 2 or 4 to "Campus".

Do not confuse Annecy-le-Vieux with le Viel Annecy. The Viel Annecy refers to the Old Town in Annecy, which is very close to the town centre of Annecy (and the train station).

We do not recommend taking a taxi from Annecy town centre. It costs approximately 13 euros. Annecy Taxi website
