Helsinki

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.
When in Helsinki, make a side trip to see Nuuksio National Park in Espoo, approximately Espoo away. The adventure continues: explore the historical opulence of Sea Fortress Suomenlinna, don't miss a visit to Market Square Kauppatori, admire the striking features of Helsinki Central Railway Station, and appreciate the extensive heritage of The Esplanadi Park.

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

Berlin, Germany to Helsinki is an approximately 5- hour flight. You can also do a combination of flight and ferry; or drive. Due to the time zone difference, you'll lose 1 hour traveling from Berlin to Helsinki. In September, daytime highs in Helsinki are 19°C, while nighttime lows are 8°C. Wrap up your sightseeing on the 2nd (Wed) early enough to drive to Tampere.
