This guide to using Annecy station provides insights into what to look out for when departing and arriving in Annecy by train.
In Annecy station, the voies (platforms/tracks) have letters and not numbers.
Voie A is beside the station buildings and facilities - and Voie S is accessed from voie A
A passage under the railway tracks links the station building to voies (platforms/tracks) B, C and D.
This passage can be accessed by lifts / elevators, though there isn't a lift in the main station building, you need to step out on to voie A and go to the left.
Other lifts connect the passage way to voies, B, C and D, but if your train arrives or departs from these voies (platforms/tracks), the alternative to using the lifts is to take the stairs, there are no escalators on these voies.
There is an escalator in the main station hall, which connects it to the passage way that gives access to voies (platforms/tracks) B, C and D, but as there is only one escalator it will lead either down or up.
Annecy station is very conveniently located, the picturesque old town area is within a 5 - 10 minute walk.
The easiest route is to cross the street when exiting the station and immediately turn left, and go to the right of the grassy area with trees.
On the other side of the grassy area take the first right into the street named Rue de la Poste, this street leads directly to the most recognised location in Annecy, the Rue De La Republic Pont.
