Visiting Helsinki – A City Guide

Helsinki is a vibrant waterfront capital ringed by islands. Ice covers the sea in winter, while in summer the city basks in almost constant daylight. But life here isn’t all about seasons. Helsinki is also a youthful metropolis with a cutting-edge design scene and a deserved reputation for culinary excellence.
 

Helsinki: city layout

Helsinki is built on water. The city centre sits on a narrow peninsula surrounded by islands, and you’re never far from the sea. You can visit the islands thanks to an efficient network of ferries that run day and night. Many mainland sights are south of the main station, around Senate Square. West of the centre in Ruoholahti is the international ferry port, with connections to Estonia. The districts south of the centre are more residential, but also home to several parks and beaches. Areas north of the centre are more business-oriented.


What to see in Helsinki

Start a tour of Helsinki’s historic centre at Senate Square, which is ringed by grand neoclassical buildings including Helsinki Cathedral, the Senate, the University of Helsinki and the National Library of Finland. Don’t miss the Sederholm House, the oldest stone building in the city, in the southeast corner. The nearby Esplanade Park is the city’s green heart. At the east end of the park, in South Harbour, you can visit the stalls on Market Square, which sell traditional Finnish foods and treats, as well as handicrafts and souvenirs.


The concierge recommends…

  • Boarding a ferry to Suomenlinna sea fortress. The island is a monument to European military architecture, and home to several museums and cafés.
  • Admiring the neoclassical beauty of Helsinki Cathedral, for many the symbol of Helsinki. The grand white church was designed by architect Carl Ludwig Engel and completed in 1852.
  • Taking in the modernist simplicity of Temppeliaukio Church, which was quarried directly out of the bedrock in 1969.
  • Getting to know Finnish folk traditions at the Seurasaari Open-Air Museum. The buildings here come from across Finland and reflect everyday life from the 18th to the 20th century.


Hotels in Helsinki

Helsinki offers a wide range of accommodation choices to suit all tastes and budgets, from luxury to shoestring. You can stay in large modern hotels oriented towards the needs of business travellers, or pick from short-stay apartments and design hotels that are perfect for a leisurely city break.
 

You’ll find most hotels in the city centre, south of the station and west of Senate Square. The bulk of the shops and many restaurants and sights are also here. The centre becomes quieter as you move west and south. Staying in a western suburb such as Ruoholahti leaves you close to several businesses and the international ferry terminal, and within a short tram or metro ride of the centre. North of the centre, the Pasila business district is convenient for visitors to Helsinki’s Convention Centre. You can also opt to stay out of the city, close to Vantaa Airport.


Eating Out in Helsinki

Helsinki’s restaurants have gained an international reputation by focusing on local ingredients such as wild berries (lingonberries and cloudberries) and fish (particularly salmon and herring). Influence from Lapland has popularised game such as elk and reindeer. To try local food, look for the “Helsinki Menu” fork logo in restaurant windows.
 

You’ll find a high concentration of upmarket and mid-range restaurants on the streets around Esplanade Park. For simpler fare head to Helsinki’s indoor market halls, where restaurant stalls sell traditional specialities. It’s a great way to discover local food culture at reasonable prices. In summer, the temporary outdoor eateries on Market Square are hugely popular with al fresco diners, while other stalls overflow with fresh strawberries and peas in their pods – two delicious, healthy seasonal snacks. You can also taste the catch of the day almost as soon as it is unloaded at the adjacent harbour.
 

The chef recommends...

  • Hernekeitto: Pea soup made with fresh green peas and ham and served with mustard, traditionally served on Thursdays and followed with a dessert pancake.
  • Reindeer (Poronkäristys): Said to be the healthiest of all red meats. Usually served with mashed potatoes and lingonberries or cloudberries.
  • Silli ja uudet perunat: Herring and new potatoes, served in many ways but best served simply with butter, dill and a little salt.
  • Leipäjuusto: A mild cheese made from curdled cow, reindeer or goat’s milk. Often called “squeaky cheese” in English, it is fried or baked, then cut into wedges and served with cloudberry jam.


Shopping in Helsinki

Helsinki is a hotbed of modern Nordic design, which emphasises beauty, minimalism and functionality. You’ll find hundreds of small boutiques and designer stores in the city. For more down-to-earth bargains, there are also dozens of flea markets and antique stores. Finnish people rarely haggle over prices, even in markets.
 

Most high-street stores in the city centre are southwest of the main station. You may want to check out the flagship site of the Stockmann department store chain, or the Forum shopping centre, home to 120 outlets. Esplanadi Street is lined with designer boutiques, while Market Square is filled with food stalls. To discover where Helsinki is at in terms of cutting-edge fashions, accessories and other goods, head southwest of the centre to Design District Helsinki, an area of 25 streets with over 200 designer goods stores and art showrooms.
 

Top markets in Helsinki

  • The indoor Old Market Hall opened in 1889 and still sells everything from cheese and shellfish to vegetables, fruit and cakes.
  • Hakaniemi Market Hall has around 70 shops on two floors. Those on the lower floor sell food, while those above focus on souvenirs and handicrafts. In summer an outdoor market sets up on the square outside.
  • Located in the South Harbour, Market Square is Helsinki's largest outdoor market, selling traditional foods and handicrafts, even in winter.
  • Hietalahti Flea Market sets up in summer on Hietalahti Square in the Design District, with around 150 stalls.


Culture & Nightlife in Helsinki

Helsinki is bursting with galleries and cultural attractions, including the Helsinki City Museum’s several sites, which are all free to enter. After dark you’ll find a vast range of clubs and bars that offer something for everyone, no matter you’re looking for in terms of atmosphere and price.
 

For high culture, you might want to take in a concert at Finlandia Hall, home to the Helsinki Philharmonic Orchestra. The bulk of the city’s bars and clubs are in the central area, around the main station and to the south and west of there. You’ll find another cluster of trendy bars, and pubs with a more local feel, in the former working-class district of Kallio, just north of the centre. This up-and-coming area is popular with students and young professionals alike, and the focus of the nightlife here is along the main street, Hämeentie.
 

Best museums in Helsinki

  • To learn about Finnish history from prehistoric times to the 21st century, check out the ethnographic collections in the National Museum of Finland.
  • The Ateneum Art Museum is home to Finland’s largest art collection, with more than 20,000 works from the 1750s to the 1950s.
  • Helsinki City Museum, near Senate Square, is free to enter and takes you on a journey into Helsinki’s past, with an eclectic collection that ranges from plastic bags to pianos.
  • The Design Museum illustrates the development of Finnish art and handicrafts from the 19th century to the present day.


Visiting Helsinki with a Family

Helsinki offers a variety of activities and attractions to keep children of all ages entertained. The city is home to a large number of parks for little ones to let off steam, and there even beaches where everyone can make a splash in the Baltic when the weather is warmer.
 

Give your children an insight into Finnish folk history by heading north of the city centre to Seurasaari Open-Air Museum. You can explore traditional homes and buildings that were transferred here from all across the country, while guides dressed in national costumes regale you with colourful tales of the past. If you want to head out onto the water, take a ferry out to the sea fortress of Suomenlinna, which was built on several small interlinked islands near the city centre. When you’re done exploring and need a refreshing break there are also several child-friendly cafés here.
 

Best family attractions in Helsinki

  • Helsinki Zoo was established in 1889, and is home to around 200 different animal species. You can meet them in customised environments that range from Arctic tundra to tropical rainforest.
  • Helsinki’s most popular and oldest theme park, Linnanmäki Amusement Park, has a wide range of rides for all ranges, from gentle to adrenaline pumping. The central attraction is a wooden roller coaster that’s more than half a century old.
  • On Suomenlinna island, the Suomenlinna Toy Museum has an enchanting collection of old dolls, antique teddy bears, and other toys, some of which are more than 200 years old.

Top Rated Helsinki Hotels


Convenient location
By CJKK
I have an early flight to catch. This hotel is right next to the train station, making connection to the airport by the frequent fast train real easy. It also allows me a few hours to explore the [More] city of Helsinki. [Less]
Great location in Helsinki
By Mika76
This hotel is conveniently located by the main railway station. It has modern rooms, friendly staff, excellent breakfast and all the amenities available for both the business and leisure traveler. [More] I love staying at this hotel! [Less]
Bring an air freshener.
By Nordic_Explorer62
Staff are very professional and provide an excellent service to guests. Breakfast offers good variety. I checked into one top floor room, but had to move as the smell of stale sweat was all [More] pervading. The second room I had was marginally better as staff had sprayed air freshener in the room, but this soon wore off. The curtains reeked of a sweaty stale smell. As windows can not be opened and the A/C system is very ineffective, with little impact on the heat in the room in summer, bring your own air freshener and go outside as often as you can. Location is great but not a good in room experience. Rooms are getting tired and the wrinkled woodwork on bedside tables and stale unwashed curtains and carpet make for an unpleasant aromatic experience. Sorry to say this as I love this hotel, but standards are on the way down. [Less]
Comfortable centrally located hotel. Super helpful staff, stylish rooms.
By Caroline LB
Thoroughly enjoyed staying here on our trip to Helsinki. Hotel staff always welcomed us in each time we returned from a trip out. Breakfast was perfect, too easy to over eat! Our room was spacious [More] and comfortable, with all the facilities we would expect of a hotel of this standard. Decor a bit quirky, which is adorable! Mattresses incredibly comfortable. The only down side is that we couldn't open the windows wide to get fresh air in, and neither could we control the heating. Staff very helpfully gave us a fan. Love this hotel and would definitely go back. [Less]

Excellent hotel with fantastic staff
By Dors66
I am so glad we picked this hotel to stay in. It is situated in a really nice area and the staff really excelled in all areas from the perfect welcome, to serving breakfast and at the bar. Nothing [More] was too much trouble. Our room was spacious, clean, bright and modern. If you’re being picky there were a few marks on the wall and floor, however, not unexpected in a hotel. Bathroom very clean, shower excellent with lovely toiletries. Breakfast was fantastic with a lovely selection of bread, pastries, hot and cold items. It was continually replenished. The location of the hotel was lovely, a little walk into the centre but nice to explore. There are several nice cafés and shops on the walk. I would highly recommend this hotel, we were in Helsinki for a wedding and had booked 5 rooms between us, everyone in our party was equally impressed. [Less]
