GreHack-2012-How to Reach-english
GreHack will take place in the city of Grenoble, France. Grenoble is the capital of the department of Isère, with about 157,000 inhabitants — 550,000 taking into account the metropolitan area. It is located in a valley surrounded by nearby mountains (the Chartreuse Mountains to the north, the Belledonne range to the east, and the Vercors Plateau to the west and south) that make Grenoble known as being the "Capital of Alps".

How to reach Grenoble
The town is served by two airports: Lyon Saint-Exupéry(LYS, 100km from Grenoble) and Grenoble-Isère (45km from Grenoble). We highly recommend landing to LYS, as it is a way bigger airport.

- From Grenoble-Isère airport (GNB), take the [http://www.grenoble-altitude.com/?lg=en Grenoble Altitude] airport shuttle. Their timetable reflects the timetable of the airport and there is one bus for each arrival at the airport. Tickets can be bought on the bus or in advance online.
