 *** Practical info ***

AIRPORT – GENEVA – TANNAY 

Geneva Airport is at 7 minutes by train from the Central Train station (called Gare Cornavin). People arriving by plane can take a free one-way welcome ticket for their first Geneva public transport trip next to the airport’s baggage claim section JUST BEFORE leaving through customs. You just need to push a single button (there is only one on the BLUE machine) to get this one-way welcome ticket.

If you plan to go to Tannay directly from the airport, additionally to the free ticket, buy a regular train ticket from Geneva Cornavin to Tannay on the SBB machines (6.60 CHF).

For those arriving directly at the Friday milonga or taking the plane back home on Sunday, the airport is connected directly by train in 35 minutes (ask us for more info if required).

 NIGHT BUS: TANNAY – GENEVA

We have arranged an exclusive bus service that will take you to downtown Geneva at the end of the evenings Friday and Saturday ending at 2am.

The bus will make three stops: Gare Routière de Genève, near Plainpalais (the old location), and Rond Point de Rive.

For those who prefer the train, the last one is at 00h49 from Tannay to Geneva.

There are more surprises coming up!

* New dance location !! Inscriptions reopened **

(Hernan called everywhere to find this beautiful location above)

As we were very sad to say No to more than 30 people who wanted to join us, due to the limited size of our rooms, we have been intensively searching for new venues for our event and we are very pleased to announce that we have managed to get a bigger room for our entire Queer Tango Meeting 2019.

All Milongas will take place at

“Salle communale de Tannay”, route du Village 2, 1295 Tannay,

reachable in 22 minutes by train from Geneva main train station Cornavin.

On the one hand, we deeply apologize for changing the location of the event, especially if you have chosen accommodation near the previous venues.
On the other hand, this change will allow us to provide a GREATER QUALITY OF EVENT for many reasons:
– the dance floor will be 3 times bigger on wooden parquet for all the Milongas,
– the amount of dancing hours on Friday and Saturday will be extended,
– there will be up to twice as many dancers,
– the place offers much more comfortable facilities for organisation and for serving food and drinks,
– the venue has a much better quality of sound system,
– the place is overall far more beautiful.

Please trust us that we’re making the greatest efforts to make you live a great experience joining us. We thank you for your understanding about this change.
