Helsinki ©
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.
Take a break from the city and head to Nuuksio National Park and Teijo National Park. Get a sense of the local culture at Seurasaari Island and Open-Air Museum and Kansallisgalleria. Get out of town with these interesting Helsinki side-trips: Tulliniemi Nature Path (in Hanko), Arboretum Mustila (in Elimaki) and Castle Hill (in Porvoo). There's still lots to do: brush up on your military savvy at Sea Fortress Suomenlinna, wander the streets of Katajanokka, contemplate in the serene atmosphere at Temppeliaukion Church, and learn more about the world around you at Natural History Museum (Luonnontieteellinen Museo).

Before you visit Helsinki, use our trip planner to discover what you can do and see there.

If you are flying in from Luxembourg, the closest major airport is Helsinki Vantaa Airport. In July, plan for daily highs up to 25°C, and evening lows to 15°C. Finish up your sightseeing early on the 9th (Tue) so you can travel back home.
