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.
Escape the urban bustle at Nuuksio National Park and Aurinkolahti Beach. You'll discover tucked-away gems like Seurasaari Island and Open-Air Museum and Stromforsin ruukki. There's much more to do: steep yourself in history at Fortress of Suomenlinna, admire the landmark architecture of Rock Church, browse the eclectic array of goods at Hakaniemi Market, and take in the architecture and atmosphere at Helsinki Cathedral.

To see more things to do, other places to visit, where to stay, and more tourist information, you can read our Helsinki vacation builder tool .

If you are flying in from Germany, the closest major airport is Helsinki Vantaa Airport. In August, plan for daily highs up to 24°C, and evening lows to 13°C. Cap off your sightseeing on the 17th (Fri) early enough to travel back home.
