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.

  • You can reach there by hop on hop off buses, public transportation or bikes etc. It is beautiful and very much what you can associate with the great artist. Luckily there is enough green area around it so you can have your little picnic there if you have enough time. It should be in your top list if your stay in Helsinki is longer than 1 day or if you are a huge big fan of music and art.
  • Interesting piece of art in a very nice and quiet park. Near the lake where you can have rent a kayak or a boat! One of the activity to so during summer time! Ps. It's a no drone zone near the waters. So be aware!
