Helsinki holidays

Helsinki sights and attractions

A city break in Helsinki encompasses striking architecture and cutting-edge design, picturesque nature and stylish eateries. Resting upon the banks of the Baltic Sea, Helsinki has two distinct seasons. In winter it is a festive wonderland, with Christmas markets, trees dusted in snow and cozy bars serving Finnish mulled wine, called "glögi". In warmer months, boating on lakes, hiking, outdoor festivals, and al fresco dining can all be part of the itinerary. Key sights include the city's eye-popping Cathedral swathed in gold, blue and white, the Rock Church carved out of ancient rock, and the city's Old Market Hall where visitors can sample gourmet Finnish delicacies.

What to do in Helsinki

The centre of Helsinki is compact and can be easily explored on foot, or by hopping on and off the easy-to-navigate tramline. Attractions range from architectural gems, bustling food markets, and innovative exhibitions to attractive outdoor spaces and boat trips around the peninsula.

On a weekend break in Helsinki, you can:

  • Climb the steep steps up to the domed blue, white and gold Helsinki Cathedral
  • Take a tour of Finnish art from the 19th century to present at the Ateneum Art Museum
  • Shop for souvenirs and local food at the Market Square in the South Harbor
  • Visit the jagged monument representing organ pipes, dedicated to Sibelius, Helsinki's world famous composer
  • Check out the Temppeliaukio Church (a.k.a. the Rock Church) carved from natural bedrock
  • See an open-air jazz concert in Esplanade Park during summer
  • Admire grandiose Neo-Classical architecture in the Senate Square
  • Feast on cinnamon buns and coffee for breakfast
  • Take the boat to Suomenlinna Island to see one of the biggest sea fortresses in the world
  • Drink a warming "glögi" at one of the city's rooftop bars at dusk, as the lights twinkle far below
