Really nice experience for our foreign guest to take a look down to the city and both harbours. Also great for us hosts. There is all sorts of Helsinki & Finland suveniers sold also. more »

Helsinki Skywheel offers 3 turns and a great view of central Helsinki. It has a sauna cabin and a VIP cabin so if you want to ride it in style you can spend a great time here 👍
