How to get to Tampere
Tampere is easily accessible. There are excellent flight connections to Finland from all parts of the world. Several international airlines offer regular flights to Helsinki, the capital of Finland. There is a local train stopping at Helsinki Airport that you can take to Tikkurila station and change there to a long-distance train to Tampere (train connections within Finland are found HERE).
Besides the train connections, there are very good long-distance bus connections from Helsinki Airport to Tampere. There are also several daily connecting flights on week-days to Tampere and vice versa (see Finnair and Tampere-Pirkkala airport). From Tampere-Pirkkala airport there are good connections to Tampere city as well.
Tampere is located in Southern Finland, 175 kilometres north of Helsinki.
It is Finland’s third largest city as well as the largest inland city in the Nordic countries. Tampere is located on an isthmus between lakes Näsijärvi and Pyhäjärvi, in a beautiful ridge scenery.
