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.
Museum-lovers will get to explore Seurasaari Island and Open-Air Museum and Parola Tank Museum. You'll discover tucked-away gems like Bellevue Beach and Natural History Museum (Luonnontieteellinen Museo). Change things up with these side-trips from Helsinki: Fagervik Museum (in Inkoo), Sipoonkorven Kansallispuisto (in Vantaa) and Suomen Lasimuseo (The Finnish Glass Museum) (in Riihimaki). There's much more to do: admire the masterpieces at Kansallisgalleria, get to know the fascinating history of Castle Hill, test your problem-solving skills at popular escape rooms, and enjoy the sand and surf at Beach Mansikkalahti.

To find photos, other places to visit, reviews, and more tourist information, go to the Helsinki day trip tool .

If you are flying in from Sweden, the closest major airport is Helsinki Vantaa Airport. January in Helsinki sees daily highs of -3°C and lows of -9°C at night. Finish your sightseeing early on the 12th (Sat) so you can travel back home.
