Tallinn airport (Tallinna Lennujaam) is conveniently located at the edge of town. The city centre is only about 3 km away.
The taxi ride from the Airport to the city centre (hotels or conference venue) should cost not more than 10 EUR. You should ask for the approximate price when entering the taxi and make sure the driver uses the taxi meter.
It is also possible to take bus no 2 (direction Reisisadam, bus stop 1 on floor 0) which will take you directly to the city centre (the stop is called Laikmaa). The cost is 1.60 EUR (cash only) for a single ride when bought from the driver. You can also use other ticket options (day tickets, etc.). Plan your trips through the public transport portal. More Information on finding your way around can be found at the Tallinn Tourism Portal.
Tallinn is well connected with Helsinki, Finland, via multiple ferries per day (travelling time roughly 2 hours) and with Stockholm, Sweden (departures every evening, traveling time 15 hours). All three passenger Terminals (A,B,D) at Port of Tallinn, which serve different ferry companies are close to Tallinn Old Town (a 20 minute walk) and Tallinn University. The Terminal D can be reached with a 10 minute walk from Tallinn University, other terminals 25 minutes walk. More information can be found here.
Bus no 2 departs from the A, B and D-terminal to the city centre and airport (direction Mõigu) approximately every 30 minutes from 7 am until midnight. The price from the bus is 1.60 EUR. A taxi from the terminal to the city centre costs about 5 up to 10 EUR.
International bus lines (Lux Express and Ecolines) offer bus connections between Tallinn and many European cities. International (and domestic) bus lines arrive at and depart from Tallinn’s Central Bus Station. From the bus station to the city centre you can take a tram no 2 (direction Kopli) or no 4 (direction Tondi). The stop at the city centre for both trams is called Hobujaama.
