Evening program locations

Monday 20th of June – A Dinner for the speakers at Restaurant Särkänlinna

The restaurant is situated on an island, a few minute ferry ride from the mainland. The ferry departs from the Ullanlinna pier, next to the Café Ursula in the Kaivopuisto park shore.

The easiest way to get there by public transport is to take the tram line 2 from Senaatintori to Olympiaterminaali, from which the pier is a 10-minute walk away.

A joint departure from the Ullanlinna pier will leave at 18.00. We recommend that you arrive to the pier at least 5 minutes in advance. If you miss this departure, you can take the next ferry – they leave every 20 minutes. Click here for Särkkä ferry timetables

Other conference guests can attend the dinner at their own expense.
