About the District

Cointrin might sound familiar if you’ve ever flown to Geneva, as Geneva airport is located in Cointrin’s district. Cointrin is a locality in the canton of Geneva known as “16th Street” and spreads over the towns of Meyrin and Vernier, which are the fourth and second most populous towns of the canton after Geneva. The district is linked to Meyrin, Vernier and Geneva’s city centre via several bus and tram lines and three train lines connect the airport to Geneva’s train station in 7 minutes. It is also very close to the CERN, the European Organisation for Nuclear Research, one of the world’s largest centres for scientific research. L’Oréal and Alcon Novartis are other organizations located in the district.

It is also a prosperous quiet residential area with a primary school, making it popular amongst Geneva’s families as well as people working in the city centre but preferring a calmer area to live.
