"Take a walk up the..." Biking, Hiking & Walking Tip by mikeworden

Biking, Hiking & Walking, Helsinki: 18 reviews and 33 photos

Take a walk up the Mannerheimentie and you can see Finlandia Hall and the Finnish National Museum. Further up go to the Olympic Stadium and take the elevator to the top of the observation tower for some spectacular views.

Don't forget the Senate Square, South HArbor, Eslande and Market Square. The Luthern and Orthodox Cathedrals are must sees!

Then there is the Temppeliaukio Church, cut directly into the rock!!

The main train station with its awesome architecture.

Take a boat tour of the harbor and archipelago around the South Harbor for vistas and views that are superb!
