Complimentary weekly programme for overnight guests

In addition to our gym and lovely sauna, we offer the following weekly programme free of charge. Activities are available when you stay at Marski.

  • Monday 6 pm – MARSKI X Amos Rex
    Art moves us, or not, in ways that we ourselves do not always quite understand, let alone knowing how to put them into words. ‘I feel, for now’ is Amos Rex’s first exhibition of works from its own collections on this scale, and it takes us through the art into emotions. The museum is open from 11am to 8pm. Limited amount of tickets available per day.
  • Tuesday 6 pm – TUKTUK TOUR
    See Helsinki from a TukTuk! Departure from the lobby at 6pm. The tour can accommodate 4 people. Register at the front desk.
  • Wednesday 7-8 am – MARSKI X Saucony Run Club
    Refresh your morning and join for a morning run with Saucony Run Club! There will be also Saucony test shoes available. Please note that there is a limited amount of shoes. Meeting at 06:45 in the lobby.
  • Thursday 6 pm – GUIDED WALKING TOUR
    This short 1-hour tour gives you a brief introduction to the capital city and its history. This easygoing 2 km tour takes you from hotel to the Baltic Sea views and historical city center and then returns to the hotel. Departure from the reception at 6:00 pm and the tour can accommodate 15 people.
  • Thursday 8-12 pm – MARSKI THURSDAY SOUNDS @ Marski Bar

  • Saturday 8-12 pm – MARSKI SATURDAY SOUNDS @ Marski Bar
  • Sunday 9-10 am – PLOGGING
    The name of plogging comes from the Swedish words jogga (to run) and plogga (to pick up). This trending sports combines the effectiveness and variability of a running exercise and environmental values in a clever way. You get to see Helsinki by foot, get a good exercise and do good for the environment. The person picking up the most trash will be rewarded. All you need is sporty clothing. Register at the front desk latest Saturday evening 9 pm. Event can accommodate 15 people. Session starts from the lobby.

Marski Gallery

The exhibitions are open daily. Free entry.

Jun 3 – 30 Susanna Iivanainen – Flowing Nature

Susanna Iivanainen – Flowing Nature

Helsinki-based artist Susanna Iivanainen explores the connection between human and nature in her paintings, especially the theme of water. In her works, water symbolises emotional states and states of mind, using mainly ink and acrylic-based ink colours on canvas.

The paintings also feature abandoned spaces that nature has reclaimed over time. These spaces express both mystery and a sense of threat, while depicting the inevitability of the passage of time and its impact on humans and the environment.

Jul 1 – Aug 4 Minttu Polso

Aug 5 – Sep 1 Maria Windschuttel – Of Sad Waters

Maria Windschuttel – Of Sad Waters

Maria Windschüttel is an artist with a passion for adventure and freedom, who draws inspiration from the strength and autonomy that she finds in isolated places of vast grandeur, and natural beauty. Born in Dresden, and studied in Hamburg and Helsinki, Windschüttel has made repeated retreats throughout Finland, to the Åland Islands and the Norwegian Arctic, during these past 10 years, to create an extensive body of work – of which, a small sample is being shared for this exhibition. 

In drawings, self-portrait photography, mixed-media, and landscape installations, Windschüttel engages with the constraints of self and relationships between human and nature. A quest to be left fully alone, without gaze or interruption, and draped in the sublimity and Romanticism of wilderness. On mountains and by seascapes, she memorializes these intimate engagements and the hours spent through photo and documentation.
