MLG banquet

The banquet will take place at the Töölönranta restaurant at 8:30pm, on 4th July. The restaurant is located by Töölölahti, a cove/bay very close to the center of Helsinki, just behind the Opera house, about 2.3 km from the University main building. The address is Helsinginkatu 56. (Google map)

To get to the restaurant from Helsinki downtown first walk towards the central railway station and then up to the Opera house via Mannerheimintie street or via the Hesperian puisto park between Mannerheimintie street and the Töölölahti bay. The trip takes around 20-30 minutes by foot, depending on your walking pace. Those arriving to the baquet by other means can take a taxi from the University or a bus from the Elielinaukio square beside the railway station, about 500 m from the University main building. Due to ongoing construction work in the city center tram lines are not trafficing towards Mannerheimintie street from the University during the week of the workshop.

There will be local organizers leaving at 20:00 from the University main building entrance for the banquet. You are welcome to join.
