Sitting at the mouth of the Aura River, Turku is one of Finland's quaintest and most historically rich towns.
Escape the urban bustle at Bellevue Beach and Nuuksio National Park. You'll explore the less-touristy side of things at Tulliniemi Nature Path and Ispoinen Beach and Sauna. You'll find plenty of places to visit near Turku: Teijo national park (in Pernio), Mathildedalin Kylapanimo (in Salo) and Raseborg (Ekenas Old Town, Hagen - Ramsholmen - Hogholmen, & more). There's lots more to do: trek along The Archipelago Trail, browse the collection at Turku City Library, kick back and relax at Vepsa Island, and let the kids burn off some steam at Adventure Park.

For other places to visit, where to stay, reviews, and other tourist information, you can read our Turku day trip planner .

If you are flying in from Germany, the closest major airport is Turku Airport. January in Turku sees daily highs of -3°C and lows of -9°C at night. Wrap up your sightseeing on the 7th (Fri) early enough to travel back home.
