Helsinki Guide

Know Before You Go

  • An easy and cheap way to sightsee around the city is with tram routes 2 and 3. It passes many of Helsinki's famous sites, and you can get a free audio guide for the trip.
  • Eating out and drinking is expensive in the city. To get around this, head to the bottle store before 8 p.m. and have a few drinks at home before you head out.
  • Finland doesn't have a tipping culture. With a healthy national minimum wage, waitrons don't need to rely on tips, but if you think your service was exceptional feel free to round up your bill.
  • If you lose your wallet in Helsinki, don't panic. According to one study, the odds of getting it back are higher compared to any other city in the world.
  • The headlining event for Helsinki's summer months is Flow Festival. If you can, plan your trip around its dates to experience a world-class music, food and arts festival.

Getting Around Helsinki

If you are going to be using public transportation a lot while in the city, you can buy the Helsinki Card. With it, you'll get unlimited travel on the buses, trams, subway and ferries; a free sightseeing tour; and free entry to over 50 museums and sights. Prices for the card start at EUR 46 for a one day pass.

  • One of the best ways to travel around the city is by tram. It's an excellent way to tour Helsinki and travel among the locals. If you're interested in architecture, choose route number 4; route 6 is for design, art and food lovers and tram 2 is the classic sightseeing route.
  • If you need to get somewhere outside the city centre, hop on board one of the buses. You can buy tickets beforehand or from the driver, but you'll need small bills. A one day ticket for the bus or tram costs EUR 9, or you can buy a single trip for EUR 3.20.
  • While Helsinki does have a metro line, it's not the best way to get around as a tourist. Unless you are going to Rastila camping site, Aurinkolahti Beach or Itis shopping centre, there aren't many stops on the line that are of interest to travellers.
  • With a 1,200 km network of bike paths, it's easy to explore many of Helsinki's sights on two wheels. Bike rentals start at EUR 5 a day and can be dropped off at any of the 140 locations around the city.
  • Taxis are a more expensive way to get around town. Fares start at EUR 5.90 on weekdays or EUR 9 after 8 p.m. and increase by EUR 1.52 for every kilometre. Uber is also available in the city and is a cheaper option with a ride to Helsinki Cathedral costing EUR 6.

Best time to visit Helsinki

When is The Best Time to Visit Helsinki?

If you're looking for the best time to visit Helsinki weather wise, book your trip between June and August. The summer months are warm, and there are plenty of activities and events to keep you busy. But it is the city's high season, so expect higher hotel rates and crowds at museums and other attractions.

Another popular time to visit Finland is during the winter months (December to March). While there won't be much sun, you'll be able to witness natural phenomena like the Aurora Borealis in December or take part in the many winter sports activities. While it is a more expensive time of year to visit, the experience makes every penny spent worth it.

If you are travelling to Finland on a budget, September and October are good times to visit. You'll avoid the high tourist season, and while a few attractions will be closed, the city will be yours to explore with its beautiful fall landscapes and mild weather. Just make sure you pack a raincoat if you're visiting during September as that's when the city has its highest annual rainfall.
