Facilities and Services

Organize an event, party, or a gig at the atmospheric Tavara-asema right next to the Tampere Railway Station at the city center!

Tavara-asema offers a great event space with a historical setting and agile service design for a variety of functions. This event and concert venue is snuggled right next to Tampere’s developing railway district, near the Railway Station, several hotels, and the City Center.

Built in the decorative Art Nouveau style, Tavara-asema can be transformed into a venue for corporate functions, gala dinners, trade fairs, festivals, dance events, theatre, conferences, parties, and other memorable experiences. The balcony can be closed for a more intimate space for smaller gatherings, and the feel of the space can be easily transformed with various furnishing and decoration solutions. For even smaller meetings, you can also hire the cabinet.
