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.
Get some cultural insight at Rock Church and Fortress of Suomenlinna. Relax by the water at Aurinkolahti Beach and Hietaranta Beach. Change things up with these side-trips from Helsinki: Nuuksio National Park (in Espoo), Valkmusa National Park (in Siltakyla) and Sibelius Hall (in Lahti). And it doesn't end there: stroll through Korkeasaari Zoo, head off the coast to Pihlajasaari Recreational Park, pause for some serene contemplation at Helsinki Cathedral, and browse the eclectic array of goods at Old Market Hall.

To see traveler tips, where to stay, more things to do, and tourist information, go to the Helsinki driving holiday planning site .

If you are flying in from Germany, the closest major airport is Helsinki Vantaa Airport. Expect a daytime high around 19°C in September, and nighttime lows around 8°C. Cap off your sightseeing on the 2nd (Tue) early enough to travel back home.
