How to get there
To get yourself to Finland you can choose either ferry or airplane. If you are travelling by car outside of Finland we suggest you to take a ferry. Alternatively you can travel around the Gulf of Finland and enter Finland via Russia. The other alternative is to travel around Gulf of Botnia and enter Finland via Sweden. These options are worth to consider if you are coming from St Petersburg or the Swedish Lapland. Otherwise the ferries are most convinient way to travel to Finland by car.
There is frequent ferry traffic between Estonia and Finland as well as between Sweden and Finland. You can pick and choose from multiple different companies. Prices are reasonable and between Finland and Sweden you can even do some Tax-Free shopping. There are also ferry connections directly from Germany to Finland.

Hämeenlinna is easy to reach by train from any major city in Finland. The official event hotel Emilia is about 1 km from the train station and the Häme castle is 2 km away. All event related activities are well within a walking distance.
Train is a convenient and fast way to get to the city. The only possible problem is to get to the train station since there are no train connections directly from the ferry harbors or airports. Airports have information regarding the connections to the railroads by bus.
