Travel to Tampere
Tampere is easily accesible. There are excellent flight connections to Finland and Tampere from all parts of the world. Tampere has an international airport, served by Blue1/SAS (Star Alliance), AirBaltic, Finnair (One World Alliance) and Ryanair.
For more travel information, see the Tampere Convent Bureau website.
A large city by Finnish standards, with more than 200 000 inhabitants, Tampere has managed to keep the small town feel. The city centre is compact in size, and the atmosphere is friendly and casual.
The city is located on a scenic spot on a narrow isthmus between two lakes. The Tammerkoski rapids and their riverbanks form the backdrop for old industrial buildings, and ridges formed thousands of years ago by ancient seas and retreating ice offer fantastic views over the two lakes. Original architecture and innovative urban development blend together to please both viewers and users of the built environment.
For more information about the city, see the VisitTampere website.
