Overview of your Helsinki tour:

Our capital Helsinki is very much a walkable town. Pedestrians are getting more and more space to walk safely and all official buildings can be entered easily. During this tour we will naturally see buildings and sights that are famous. But when walking from one sight to an other we will see the things that are kind of hidden but have intresting stories to tell. Join me please. I walk a lot on my free timbals partly because we have a siberian husky dog at home. A good place to start is the market place in the Southern harbour of Helsinki. Close by we have the Senate Square a reminder of about 100 years we were part of the Russian empire. During our walk I will tell you about what is Finland today and what it was earlier. This was not a melting pot but people came from the east, the south and the west. No one came from the north as that is where the cold sea is.

Your Helsinki tour itinerary

During our walk we would see the Esplanades, the heart of Helsinki. Then we would walk trough the big main Railway station, a work of Eero Saarinen a famous Finnish architect. Later we will discover a group of buildings including our new music house and an older Finlandia building, work of Alvar Aalto. We will not miss Oodi our new library that is also a living room for local people and visitors as well. If your trousers need some mending you can fix it in Oodi. Please have an other pair to use during the mending. Yes, there are sewing machines in the library. The Rock Church built in the bedrock of Helsinki is aslo famous for its architecture. And suggestion from your side are naturally wellcome. For 9 euros you can have day ticket to our trams, busses and underground.
