For all media
CERN welcomes a large number of worldwide media throughout the year. To have your media visit organised on the CERN site, you should first contact and obtain permission from the CERN Media and Press Relations team at least four weeks in advance. We will only accept visits from media that have a clear mandate with a broadcaster, publication or agency. The visits take place from Monday to Friday. Media with no mandate are free to book a visit with the CERN public Visits Service.
During LHC operation, media visits underground are no longer possible. However, our team can organize visits on the CERN site above ground and arrange for interviews with scientists. Please make sure that you contact us at least four weeks in advance of your preferred visit date. Since the underground facilities are not accessible, we advise Visual Media to use our stock footage on the tunnel and the detectors.
Please note that we do not organise any press visits during the period from mid-July until mid-August 2016. Thank you for your understanding.
