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.
Helsinki is known for historic sites, shopping, and museums. Your plan includes some of its best attractions: explore the historical opulence of Sea Fortress Suomenlinna, appreciate the extensive heritage of The Esplanadi Park, don't miss a visit to Senate Square, and pause for some serene contemplation at Temppeliaukio Church.

Plan my trip to Helsinki with suggested itineraries provided by Inspirock.

Brussels, Belgium to Helsinki is an approximately 6-hour flight. You can also drive; or do a combination of train, bus, and ferry. Due to the time zone difference, you'll lose 1 hour traveling from Brussels to Helsinki. Traveling from Brussels in October, expect Helsinki to be slightly colder, temps between 10°C and 1°C. Finish your sightseeing early on the 15th (Mon) so you can drive to Espoo.

Espoo is the second largest city and municipality in Finland. Start off your visit on the 16th (Tue): stroll around Nuuksio National Park. On the 17th (Wed), you'll have a packed day of sightseeing: cool off at Serena Water Park.

To find reviews, photos, and tourist information, refer to the Espoo day trip site.

Espoo is just a short distance from Helsinki. In October, plan for daily highs up to 9°C, and evening lows to 2°C. Wrap up your sightseeing by early afternoon on the 18th (Thu) to allow time for travel back home.
