"If you have time, walking is a..." City Bikes Tip by katlau

City Bikes, Helsinki: 12 reviews and 7 photos


If you have time, walking is a good (and cheap) way to go around the city. A nice area to take a walk in my oppinion is the Eira-area. Some of the most expencive houses of Helsinki are in Eira-area. Also Töölönlahti is a great choice.

By tram you can get everywhere in the central Helsinki. For sightseeing try number 3. It passes the Opera house, Temppelinaukio Church, Kaivopuisto and the Market Square.

In the summertime Helsinki has bikes all around the city center to rent just for 10 Fim. They are called 'City bikes' and have a map of the city attached to them too.

Metro takes you from the west side of the city to the east side, but not to the north yet.
And with busses and local trains you can get everywhere you desire.
