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.
Eschew the tourist crowds and head to Stromforsin ruukki and Bellevue Beach. Seurasaari Island and Open-Air Museum and Museum of Contemporary Art Kiasma will appeal to museum buffs. Change things up with these side-trips from Helsinki: Kotka (Aijanniemi Beach, Industrial park Karhu ja Tahti, & more), Pike's Gut (in Hanko) and Inkoo (Inkoon kirkko & Fagervik Museum). Pack the 29th (Fri) with family-friendly diversions at Linnanmaki Amusement Park. Spend the 25th (Mon) exploring nature at Sipoonkorven Kansallispuisto. There's still lots to do: learn about all things military at Fortress of Suomenlinna, take in the architecture and atmosphere at Holy Cross Church, wander the streets of Ullanlinna, and admire the masterpieces at Kansallisgalleria.

For maps, photos, more things to do, and more tourist information, refer to the Helsinki trip itinerary planner .

If you are flying in from Germany, the closest major airport is Helsinki Vantaa Airport. February in Helsinki sees daily highs of 0°C and lows of -3°C at night. Cap off your sightseeing on the 1st (Mon) early enough to travel back home.
