"Cheapest Helsinki sightseeing !" Helsinki Transportation Tip by ZenLady34

Helsinki Transportation: 334 reviews and 353 photos

  Tram 3T/3B routes
by ZenLady34

The cheapest sightseeing one can do in Helsinki is by tram. There are two trams (3T and 3B) which will take you to a sightseeing. These are trams that are in "normal" trafic, not especially for tourists but they've got a really good idea printing the brochures with lots of information on places. Dont they?
So, Yellow Spots are Stops with interesting sights nearby
Green Spots:Stops

some examples:
Nbr 1: Market Square
Nbr 2: Senate Square: The Neoclassical ensemble around the Senate Square was created by architect C.L Engel.
Nbr 24: Kaisaniemi Park. The Botanical Gardens are to the right.

First go to a Helsinki Touris & Convetion Bureau at Pohjoisesplanadi 19 and get yourself a brochure which shows you the route and explaines the interesting sights on the route!

The route lasts about an hour and you can return to the starting point. A single ticket from driver costs 2 Euros.

Sorry about the brochure picture, maybe you can save it and then resize it bigger?
