The name of the main train station in Chamonix is, "Chamonix Mont Blanc," on the French national rail network operated by the state controlled company SNCF.
However, the Swiss Rail web site of the operator SBB is better for route and timetable info.
Address: 40 Place de la Gare, 74400 Chamonix
Ticket Office hours: Everyday 06:40-20:20

From the UK
Travelling to Chamonix from the UK by train is not always the best option. If using public transport, air travel will nearly always be quicker and less expensive. If travel on the rail network is preferred, here are a few tips help plan the journey and find the least expensive tickets.
The main TGV lines (fast train) from Paris :
- Paris - Annecy
- Paris - Lyon
- Paris - Bellegarde
- Paris - Chambéry - Aix Les Bains
These stations have onward connections to Saint Gervais Les Bains Le Fayet (which is serviced by TGV during some periods of the year)
Tip: If you have trouble on the SNCF site finding a train, it may be because there are too many train changes. Instead of using "Chamonix" as your destination, try using "St. Gervais Les Bains Le Fayet." From wherever you come in France, you will almost always have to change trains at St. Gervais Les Bains Le Fayet (which is about 15 minutes down the valley from Chamonix after Les Houches.)
The Swiss have an excellent rail network. the SBB, with major stations in Geneva and Zurich airports. However these do not provide easy access to Chamonix.
We advise a transfer by road, but if you are set on using the train, cross Geneva to the Eaux-Vives rail station and take a French SNCF train to Annemasse or Roche-sur-Foron. Change here for Le Fayet/St. Gervais Les Bains. Change here onto the Mont Blanc Express and a panoramic ride to Chamonix.
Journeys will take between 2 hours 51 minutes & 3 hours 25 minutes. A shuttle transfer by road takes about 1hr 10 mins.
The SBB timetable is better than the SNCF timetable. The latter does not provide times and routing from Geneva Airport, only from Eaux-Vives.
