Information about the evening program for Wednesday

The conference dinner on Wednesday will be held at restaurant Suomenlinnan Panimo at 19.00. There will be a guided tour of Suomenlinna starting at 17:30 for those attending the conference dinner.

The tour and the dinner are for registered participants only.

To go to Suomenlinna you need to take a ferry from the main market square Kauppatori. The ferry ride is 15 minutes and you need to buy a ticket in the ticket office (a small wooden house with big windows, 50’s style) by the ferry departure peer (when facing the sea the ticket office/booth is on the left side). Please note; you can get a return ticket for 5 euros (cheaper than buying two one way tickets).

After the last session of the day today please proceed to the lobby on the 1st  floor from where we will walk to the ferry together.

If you only wish to attend the dinner you should take the ferry that departs from Kauppatori at 18.40.

The timetable for the ferries can be found by clicking here.
