13th meeting: Complexity and digitalization of cities – Challenges for urban planning and design


Traveling to Tampere

The best way to come to Tampere is either to fly straight to Pirkkala airport 20 km from city center, or fly to Helsinki and take an express bus to Tampere (they go frequently from the front of the terminals 1 and 2 straight to Tampere city center).  Note that the train
connection goes only to Helsinki city (if you plan to see also Helsinki, you can continue to Tampere by train from there).

Information of train tickets and possible campaign with lower prices can be find here.

Local transport

There are also good connections from the city center to the meeting venue in Hervanta, e.g. busses 3, 13 and 20 go very frequently. Bus 13 and 20 have a stop in front of the University.


There are plenty of options for good downtown hotels. Some suggestions:

Also in the center is the very affordable Omena Hotel

In Hervanta it is also possible to stay in Hotel Hermica
