Travelling to Tampere
The international week is arranged in two separate locations, Tampere and Jyväskylä. The week begins in Tampere on Monday 8 May 2017 and ends in Jyväskylä on Friday 12 May 2017. You can reach Tampere easily either by bus or train from the Finnish Capital Helsinki, or by airplane. Tampere-Pirkkala Airport has direct flights to Helsinki and various cities in Europe e.g. Stockholm, Tallinn, Budapest, and Bremen. The best flight connections to Tampere are through SAS, Flybe and Finnair. Ryanair operates in Terminal 2 in Tampere next to Terminal 1. For more information, please see the Travel to Tampere website.
Travelling to Jyväskylä
The organisers will provide a bus transport to Jyväskylä on Wednesday 10 May 2017 for the participants of the week. Please note that the week will end in Jyväskylä on 12 May, and the organisers do not cover the potential return trip to Tampere/Helsinki.
Travelling from Jyväskylä to Tampere/Helsinki
After the week, you might need to travel to Tampere or Helsinki to catch your flight. The easiest way to travel is by train, bus (there is also a budget alternative) or by airplane (only to Helsinki).
Using Buses in Tampere
1. Wave for the bus if you want it to stop.
2. Pay the ticket to the driver (3,00 €) telling which zones you want to travel in (if you’re staying in the city centre or near TAMK, zone A is enough). You can travel and change to another bus with the ticket for 1 hour.
3. The bus stops when the stop button is pressed by a passenger. In most buses, you can see the name of the next bus stop on a board in the front part of the bus.
Buses from the city centre to TAMK (bus stop TAMK):
1, 1A, 1B, 1C, 8, 28A, 28B, 29, 80, 90Mx, 90T, and 95.
For Hotels Scandic Tampere Station, Scandic Tampere City and Dream Hostel, the nearest bus stop is Rautatieasema.
Hotel Norlandia Care is very near to TAMK, and the easiest and fastest way is by foot.
