Visit Tampere - Tampere Convetion Bureau

Tampere Convention Bureau / Visit tampere

According to Finns, Tampere is the most loved residential and tourism city in Finland. It is a way of life that takes you along. The secret of Tampere is its originality. Tampere is a functional entity in a compact size.

Thousands of congress delegates and over one million travellers visit Tampere every year. Many of them fly straight to the Tampere-Pirkkala international airport.

The industrial structure of Tampere is versatile. Tampere is internationally known as a city of technology, often going in the forefront of development. The hometown of innovations has made many world-class breakthroughs, largely thanks to the universities and research centres in the city. For international congress delegates these offer an innovative academic environment and numerous interesting research centres and laboratories to visit.

Tampere is defined by a few unique characteristics: it is surrounded by beautiful lakes and eskers, it has a perfect scale for walking and there’s always something new and innovative going on. The centre of the city is dominated by industrial heritage; the national landscape of the Tammerkoski rapids and historical red brick buildings. But in Tampere we don’t look back, and therefore construction sites are often seen in everyday street life. At the moment, Finland’s largest multipurpose arena, the first Marriott hotel in Finland and a tramway are being constructed in Tampere.
