CERN welcomes a large number of worldwide media. 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. Since the underground facilities are not accessible, we advise Visual Media to use our stock footage on the tunnel and the detectors.

If you are working at CERN and have questions regarding medias, please consult The Press Office and You.

The CERN laboratory is a working site: your visit will be subject to safety conditions. Before your visit, please read the liability waiver regarding safety on site.
