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.
You'll enjoy a bit of beach vacationing at Bellevue Beach and Aurlahti Beach. Venture out of the city with trips to Kotka (Beach Mansikkalahti & Aijanniemi Beach) and Inkoon kirkko (in Inkoo). Pack the 3rd (Sat) with family-friendly diversions at Linnanmaki Amusement Park. And it doesn't end there: step into the grandiose world of Sea Fortress Suomenlinna, hunt for treasures at Market Square Kauppatori, make a trip to Senate Square, and pause for some serene contemplation at Temppeliaukio Church.

To see other places to visit, traveler tips, more things to do, and tourist information, read our Helsinki day trip planning website.

If you are flying in from Switzerland, the closest major aiport is Helsinki Vantaa Airport. In July, daytime highs in Helsinki are 25°C, while nighttime lows are 15°C. Finish your sightseeing early on the 5th (Mon) so you can travel back home.
