The 2012 European Quizzing Championships will be held at the Dorpat Hotel and Conference Centre. The hotel is located next right to the conference centre and a shopping centre which also includes a multiplex cinema. A short walk away are the intercity bus station, the Aura Centre (swimming pool and water park), the newly opened and incredible Ahhaa Science Centre, and Tigutorn, the iconic residential house. Since the centre is situated in the centre of the city, a number of other attractions, including the old town, are within easy walking distance.
