The best tips for a weekend break
Fantastic culinary experiences
Helsinki’s restaurant culture is versatile and lively. New restaurants are established so often that even the locals constantly find somewhere new to eat. In addition to the fine-dining restaurants of famous chefs and the trendy neighbourhood restaurants, stay on the lookout for the city’s street food sites and events.
A magnificent cultural city
There is plenty to admire in the Helsinki street scene. The cityscape is dominated by magnificent Art Nouveau-style buildings. It is great fun to examine the buildings and their innumerable details around town.
It is a good idea to also fit in a visit to one of Helsinki’s many theatres during your weekend trip. There are performances on both big and small stages. Numerous festivals and concerts are also organised in Helsinki, so it’s a good idea to study the city’s event calendar carefully.
There are already over 80 museums in Helsinki. In addition to the most well-known museums Ateneum and Kiasma, there are, for example, many museums established in old manors.
