GETTING TO HANKEN SCHOOL OF ECONOMICS
Helsinki is very walkable with friendly and reasonably priced taxis.
From the train station for example it would take 15min walk to Hanken.
However - it can be quite cold and rainy in September BUT also very sunny and beautiful
- please prepare for all situations!
Train to the city center: From the airport you can take either the I-train or the P-train to Helsinki Central Railway Station. The trains run from around 5 am till around midnight (around 10 min intervals during the day, and 30 min intervals early morning/late at night). Tickets are 5 EUR/ one way from the HSL ticket machines, located at the airport in front of the entrance to the train station, in the corridor between the terminals.
The city center can also be reached with Finnair City Bus which runs between the airport (serving both terminals) and Eliel Square (adjacent to the Central Railway Station). The cost is EUR 6.70 for one way ticket when purchased from the driver. Timetables can be accessed via this link
