Travel and Accommodations

The university is quite centrally located in Tampere, some 500 meters from the railway station.

Traveling via Tampere-Pirkkala Airport (TMP)Tampere-Pirkkala Airport is located about 15 kilometres from the centre of Tampere. There is a bus connection from airport to the centre (4,10 euros; can be bought from driver; see time table). The taxi fare is from 25 to 30 euros.

Traveling via Helsinki-Vantaa Airport (HEL)

Tampere is 180 kilometres northwest from Helsinki. From Helsinki-Vantaa airport there is a frequent and comfortable bus connection to the center of Tampere (duration: approx. 2,5 hours; see time table). There are also daily flights between Helsinki-Vantaa Airport (HEL) and Tampere-Pirkkala Airport (TMP), the flight time being 30 minutes. It is also possible to first take a bus to Tikkurila or City Centre of Helsinki and take a train from there to Tampere.

Accommodation in Tampere

The seminar will be held at University of Tampere. For budget travellers we recommend Omena Hotel Tampere (or Omena Hotel Tampere II), some 1.5 km from the university. The nearest business hotel is probably Sokos Hotel Villa, but City of Tampere tourist information can provide you with several alternatives within a walking distance.
