Check out bus companies
The best way to come to Taizé is by car.Then you can also see a bit of the beautiful area around it.Take the autoroute A 6 towards Mâcon and leave at the exit for Tournus. There are signs showing the way to Taizé.
But since many of the students there don't have one, there are bus companies to take them there. Many students from Eastern Europe spend up to three days in a bus to get there.
By train you can take the TGV to Mâcon TGV and then a bus to Taizé.

Taizé at the palm of your hand
Going around Taizé is pretty easy! You might feel a bit lost for the first couple of minutes - till you meat someone, that is. :) Btw., there's a welcome for everyone who comes, but if you're coming alone ('alone' as 'not in a group), you should contact them. (Meetings in Taizé > On-line Registration > ...). There's a map of the camp, but everything's at hand - I'm sure you'll make it just fine... :)
