About Helsinki & Espoo
Helsinki city center is very compact, which makes walking from one place to another always a good option. A brochure with four walking routes, in 11 languages, is available for free from the Tourist Information Centre at the Central Railway Station – exploring on foot is a great way to see Helsinki’s sights! You can also stock up on regular printed maps and create your own route. The campus itself is also located along a popular walking route following the Espoo coastline.
Helsinki and Espoo have an excellent public transport system that is convenient and efficient. The registration fee includes a four-day pass (Sunday-Wednesday) for public transportation with which the delegates can use the metro, trams, buses, commuter trains, and Suomenlinna ferry. Trams are the main mode of public transport in the city centre and a great way to see the city.
City bikes offer an additional, easy option to get from Helsinki to Aalto Campus or – thanks to the extensive network of 476 bike stations – just to get around in the cities of Helsinki and Espoo.
