Turku

Sitting at the mouth of the Aura River, Turku is one of Finland's quaintest and most historically rich towns.
Deepen your sense of the past at sights like Turku Castle and Nagu Church. You'll explore and learn at Luostarinmaen Kasityolaismuseo and Aboa Vetus & Ars Nova. Get out of town with these interesting Turku side-trips: Old Rauma (in Rauma) and Louhisaari Manor (in Askainen). There's much more to do: trek along The Archipelago Trail, ponder the design of Harmonia, and tour the pleasant surroundings at Kultaranta Garden.

Plan my Turku trip by asking Inpirock to come up with tips and suggestions.

Munich, Germany to Turku is an approximately 15.5-hour combination of car and flight. You can also drive. You'll lose 1 hour traveling from Munich to Turku due to the time zone difference. Expect a bit cooler temperatures when traveling from Munich in June; daily highs in Turku reach 20°C and lows reach 9°C. Finish your sightseeing early on the 2nd (Tue) to allow enough time to travel to Mariehamn.

Daughter of the Baltic

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.
Sea Fortress Suomenlinna and Helsinki Cathedral will appeal to history buffs. Seurasaari Island and Open-Air Museum and Maritime Centre Vellamo are good opportunities to explore the local culture. Venture out of the city with trips to Laurinmaki Crofter's Museum (in Janakkala) and Cathedral of Porvoo (in Porvoo). And it doesn't end there: admire the masterpieces at Kansallisgalleria, contemplate in the serene atmosphere at Johannes Church, pause for some serene contemplation at Temppeliaukio Church, and steep yourself in history at Mannerheim Museum.
