||Some things to consider.
- Arriving at the airport, you can take the
Finnair bus (6.60 €, for customers of all airlines) or
the new train connection between the airport and the central railway station
with ringrail trains I and P (5.50 €).
The Journey Planner for public transport, and
Google Maps might be helpful.
Wikipedia knows about
public transport in Helsinki as well.
- A taxi from the airport to the Kumpula Kampus (A.I. Virtasen Aukio 1)
or the city centre should be around 40–50 €. Taxi stands are located
right outside the exits of the arrival halls in both terminals.
- Look at the
latest weather reports before travelling as temperatures
might drop down to -15 degrees for the Winter School week.
|Other things of interest:
||Helsinki might be cold, but is not dead in December.
