HOW TO GET THERE – GENERAL INFORMATION

The airport is connected to the Helsinki main railway station by local trains I and P. The journey takes around 35 minutes, and trains leave every 10 minutes in the daytime. The ticket fare (zones ABC) is 4,60 € and should be bought from a machine at the airport (train platform level). You can also buy it via the application of Helsinki Region Transport authority (HSL). More information on the airport connections.

From the city center/main railway station to Wanha Satama it takes around 10 minutes, with trams 4 or 5. If traveling directly from the airport the train ticket is valid for transfer, otherwise tickets can be purchased from the ticket machines or any R-Kioski (note: tickets can NOT be purchased onboard). For more details, see the route map.
For more information on public transportation in Helsinki region, please visit the HSL website.

The conference venue is about 1,8 km away from the main railway station and it makes a nice walk in the historic part of the city.

The best way to get around town
Yellow city bikes have been rolling on the streets of Helsinki since May 2016. The aim of the city bike system is to encourage everyday cycling. To use city bikes, register as a user at hsl.fi/citybikes. The first time you use a city bike, you need to enter a seven-digit code you get when you register as well as a four-digit PIN code and show your Travel Card. After this, you can borrow a bike simply by showing your Travel Card and entering your PIN code.

A taxi from the airport to the conference venue would take about 40 minutes and costs around 50€.
