LHC 2008 - Open Day

Programme

The Open Day on Sunday, 6 April 9:00 -- 19:00, is your one last chance to see the LHC and its experiments. In addition to visiting the surface facilities, you will be able to go underground to see the accelerator and the experiment caverns. Exceptionally, most of the access points around the ring will be open.

An attractive programme of activities on the surface and underground visits awaits you on all the points around the ring, so we encourage you to visit te one closest to where you live (dowload PDF file).
