Stroll by the sea at Sibelius Monument, which commemorates Finnish composer Jean Sibelius. Designed by Eila Hiltunen and completed in 1967, the structure features over 600 steel pipes fused together with a bust of the composer to represent the music of Sibelius. Photograph this 24-ton work of abstract art, which is also one of Helsinki's most popular tourist attractions. Some say they can hear music playing here with the sound of wind moving through the hollow pipes.

  • If you are close by it is worth stopping and taking a look. I would not go out of my way to go and see it.  more »
  • Easy to get to and find by public transport. Pleasant park with a view of the sea and of course the unusual Sibelius statue and monument  more »

  • This monument or sculpture might inspire you! It's cool to look at from all different angles, including from underneath. Get close and touch the textured surface of the pipes. Give them a tap and compose your own masterpiece. There's a slightly jarring contrast when you see this piece and the sculpture next to it, the seemingly floating head of the composer Sibelius himself.
  • Lovely park in Helsinki, great place to visit. You can exercise, walk, have a picnic or just relax in between the nature. Very accesible to get from the metro station in Kamppi or use the bus. Sight recommended especially spring and summer were the nature is blooming.
