Finland's largest and most populated metropolis, the maritime town of Helsinki boasts varied architecture, a lively cafe culture, and plethora of picturesque natural delights.
Visiting Nuuksio National Park and Niivermaki Nature Conservation Area will get you outdoors. Rock Church and Sea Fortress Suomenlinna will appeal to history buffs. Get out of town with these interesting Helsinki side-trips: Bellevue Beach (in Hanko), Pernio (Teijo national park & Ruukin kehräämö ja puoti Oy) and Fagervik Museum (in Inkoo). Pack the 5th (Fri) with family-friendly diversions at Linnanmaki Amusement Park. Spend the 18th (Thu) exploring nature at Ekenas Archipelago National Park. There's lots more to do: pause for some serene contemplation at Helsinki Cathedral, look for all kinds of wild species at Sipoonkorven Kansallispuisto, explore the striking landscape at Hiidenkirnut, and take an in-depth tour of Seurasaari Island and Open-Air Museum.

If you are flying in from Germany, the closest major airport is Helsinki Vantaa Airport. In July, plan for daily highs up to 25°C, and evening lows to 15°C. Cap off your sightseeing on the 18th (Thu) early enough to travel back home.
