Crowne Plaza Helsinki is virtually opposite the home of the Finnish National Opera. Admire the Opera House's sweeping glass-walled foyer and its impressive vantage on the shore of Toolonlahti Bay. The new Helsinki Music Centre, next to the Finlandia Hall, will open 31st August 2011.
Ride the traditional roller coaster, bumper cars and ghost train at Linnanmaki Amusement Park, 1km away. The park, which dates back to the 1950s and is lovingly maintained, sits on a hilltop overlooking Toolonlahti Bay, the Opera House and the hotel.

Ne repartez pas sans
Hearing the wind murmur through the abstract, steel tube monument to Finnish composer Jean Sibelius, 15 minutes' walk away. The tubes seem to float in the centre of Sibelius Park and recall both a jagged mountain range and the pipes of a church organ.
Ask our friendly Concierge at Crowne Plaza Helsinki about boat tours of the city's colourful South Harbour and wooded archipelago. You can wander through Helsinki's bustling harbour and Market Square, where a herring market takes place every October.
