14°C Sept

From saunas to the Design District

Would you like to combine a weekend holiday to a city with the great outdoors? Then book a flight to Helsinki and visit the rock-hewn Temppeliaukio Church and Katajanokka peninsula with its characteristic Art Nouveau buildings. Nearly all sights are within walking distance of each other. And if you’re longing for a bit of peace and quiet, a ferry or water taxi can be arranged in no time to whisk you off to one of the many islands off the coast.

Pioneering design

The snow-white Helsinki Cathedral, standing tall over the city, can be seen from far and wide. Located on the lively Senate Square, the cathedral is one of the city’s major sights. Be sure to visit the galleries, museums, fashion studios and antique shops in the Design District, at the centre of which sits the Design Museum. Home to a collection of 75,000 designer objects, from graphic design to fashion, every possible category is represented here. Not only is Helsinki the ideal destination for weekend holidays, it’s also a perfect starting point for a longer vacation in Finland. Treat yourself: book a flight to Helsinki now!

Finnish specialities and cool cafés

Helsinki doesn’t only have a reputation in design to uphold. Also foodies will find there’s a lot to enjoy in the Finnish capital, like traditional Finnish dishes such as Lohikeitto (salmon soup) and Korvapuusti (cinnamon buns). Or you can just have a drink at one of the many cafés you’ll find throughout the city. But if you’d rather go dancing, then join the partygoers and head for one of the various clubs in the Punavuori and Töölö districts. Or end the day on a relaxing note with a Finnish sauna!
