Finland's largest and most populated metropolis, the maritime town of Helsinki boasts varied architecture, a lively cafe culture, and plethora of picturesque natural delights.
Discover out-of-the-way places like Nuuksio National Park (Nuuksion Kansallispuisto) and Mannerheim Museum. For shopping fun, head to Academic Bookstore (Akateeminen Kirjakauppa) or Fazer Visitor Centre. Next up on the itinerary: take a stroll through Ullanlinna, soothe aching muscles at some of the top local wellness centers, appreciate the extensive heritage of The Esplanadi Park, and take in the architecture and atmosphere at Helsinki Cathedral.

For where to stay, traveler tips, reviews, and other tourist information, read our Helsinki tour planner.

If you are flying in from Belgium, the closest major airport is Helsinki Vantaa Airport. In October in Helsinki, expect temperatures between 10°C during the day and 3°C at night. Finish your sightseeing early on the 9th (Mon) to allow enough time to travel back home.
