Finland's largest and most populated metropolis, the maritime town of Helsinki boasts varied architecture, a lively cafe culture, and plethora of picturesque natural delights.
You'll explore the less-touristy side of things at Spas & Wellness and Kansallisgalleria. Venture out of the city with trips to Stromforsin ruukki (in Ruotsinpyhtaa) and Porvoo Old Town (in Porvoo). There's still lots to do: test your problem-solving skills at popular escape rooms, take in the architecture and atmosphere at Rock Church, explore the galleries of Fortress of Suomenlinna, and contemplate the long history of Seurasaari Island and Open-Air Museum.

For ratings, other places to visit, maps, and more tourist information, go to the Helsinki day trip planner.

If you are flying in from Germany, the closest major airport is Helsinki Vantaa Airport. In January, daily temperatures in Helsinki can reach -3°C, while at night they dip to -9°C. Wrap up your sightseeing on the 12th (Sat) early enough to travel back home.
