  • Went up to see the sunrise on a cold cloudy morning, but no luck. Gorgeous park with multiple viewing points. Lovely observatory building too.  more »

  • This is a great park in southern Helsinki area. Helsinki University observatory and the department of astronomy locate on top of the hill surrounded by the park. Especially autumn colou are often incomparable, from any direction you approach. It is only about a hundred meters from Olympic terminal where Silja Line docks. I suggest visitors from Stockholm direction take a small detour through the park on their way to the Old Market Hall and the Market Square.
  • Helsinki Astronomical Observatory and surruounding gardens : well worth a visit !
