Public Transportation: Aeroplane / Train:

Paris/France has a big international airport named Charles de Gaulle (CDG). You can get flight tickets to CDG.
From their integrated transport hub you can directly hop on the TGV high speed train that takes you to Lyon TGV train station – and the shuttle bus to SwingSummit.

By train :

There is the famous TGV from Brussels-Paris-Lyon TGV: www.tgv-europe.com
For prices and hours you can also take a look at the site of the french railway company : www.sncf.fr

By airplane :

The best way is to fly to Lyon (airport St. Exupery) and from there take the RhoneExpress tram (every 20 min) to Lyon centre (railwaystation called Lyon Part Dieu). The tram stops are underneath the airport – Gares/Aéroport’ (Train stations/Airport).

Other destination options are Grenoble, Marseille, and Montpellier (Ryanair!).
We recommend you to check for low-budget airlines from your nearest airport to any of these French destinations.
Once you’re in France, it is easiest to continue by train to get to Lyon.

Once you receive your registration confirmation, booking a flight / train quickly will save you a good deal of money!
