ACOMMODATION

Civil protection dormitory

Close to the main sports center “Les bois des frères”, we have several civil protection dormitories. Even if they are located below ground, they offer cheap and good accommodation, reasons why they have become famous with many participants of past editions. Ask them about “the bunker” in Geneva and you will hear many thrilling stories.

We have received confirmation that the accomodation is again available this year.

Costs: EUR 10.- per person and night, including breakfast.

Available number of beds are limited, so please get quickly in touch with Erika Mesmer in order to book your accommodation. Beds will be attributed on a first come first served basis.

Geneva Hostel

A popular accomodation with some of our participating teams is the Geneva Hostel. It is located close to the Lake of Geneva and offers many different options from twin rooms up till 12 bed dormitories.

Please contact the Geneva Hostel directly in order to make your reservation.

The range of available hotels in Geneva is huge  – especially at the upper end, there is almost no limit!
