Tampere Airport

Tampere has connections to some of the hubs around the Baltic Sea (Helsinki, Riga, Stockholm). However, the airport is better known for ist low fare flights to typical Ryanair destinations like London/Stansted, Frankfurt/Hahn, Bergamo and Bremen. The airport has two terminals which are just a very short walk away from each other (ca. 300 m). Terminal 1 is the more modern one and handles all flights with exception of Ryanair and Wizzair. There, you have also a café where you can have some hot and cold food as well as all car hire offices.

Terminal 2 is the former main terminal. It is already crowded with a single full Ryanair flight and seems to be from another time. There is only one office which serves as airport information, shop, ticket counter etc. Behind the security control is a restaurant, probably the only decent thing in this terminal. My tip: Try to spend as less time as possible in the area of Terminal 2. Wait at Terminal 1 or rush as quickly as possible through security control and wait in the restaurant.

For information about transport from/to the airport, please see my separate tip.
