Experience Helsinki

Finland’s unique charm shines through on vacation in Helsinki. Whether you are looking for spas and saunas, or just a city break packed with culture and great nights out – Helsinki has something for everyone.

Travel around the archipelago’s myriad islands, or stroll around the city’s many beautiful parks – especially the famous Esplanadinpuisto park, ideally placed for a summertime picnic. Stroll beautiful streets admiring the wonderful architecture, before stopping for coffee and cake. Or visit the Design District’s hundreds of stores and galleries, which are perfect for style conscious shoppers. Take the kids to the incredible Linnanmäki theme park, or during the long winter, skating at the unmissable Icepark. For those looking for a more relaxing time, warm up at the essential Finnish experience of the evening sauna before hitting the town for a night on the tiles.

Helsinki area guide

Find the best neighbourhoods in Helsinki.

Kamppi & Kluuvi
Kamppi and Kluuvi.

Kamppi & Kluuvi

Considered to be the city centre, these two neighbourhoods are where you’ll find museums and galleries, such as the superb Helsinki Art Museum (HAM) and the Museum of Contemporary Art Kiasma. Also here is the recently renovated 1930s Stockmann department store, whose ‘Stocky's clock’, has been the meeting point for generations of Finns. Go for coffee sat at the famous outdoor cafes on Market Square and see the old American cars on display. In Kluvvi, venture up to the beautiful gardens of Kaisaniemen Park, whose botanical gardens showcase the world’s different environments – rather strange during the winter when it is -17 outside.
