  • I've been to Fiskars many times in the summer but I seldom come in the winter. Last time I visited in December. Many of the shops close in the winter, and even the restaurants may close. It's still ni...  more »
  • To the West of Helsinki, to something more than 1 hour in car, is located this small village famous by their utensils of metal (knives, scissors, pans, etc) due to its long tradition metallurgical that has left the village full of old factories and factories. Such utensils, very appreciated by them Finnish by its reputation of great quality, is still manufacturing, but the modern factories are out of the village. The old facility, have nonetheless is recycled in workshops of art, craft, or shops that offer all kinds of Finnish design products, one of national pride. This combination of old with modern is really interesting and a good example of the ability to reinvent itself from the Finns and convert a small town convicted almost to the disappearance of the cessation of industrial activity to an important tourist and commercial centre in the region. Undoubtedly, it is an excellent place to take a stroll, enjoy this beautiful town with charm and step buy beautiful objects to decorate or give. Fiskars has quite a few restaurants and hotels, despite their small size, which demonstrates its touristic character. Also organizes regularly activities, such as festivals of food, fairs of handicraft, etc. There is a large free public parking at the entrance of the village, so parking is no problem.

  • A lot of things, a suitable day trip destination, a short drive from the capital of the region. Nice cafes and restaurants, however, the prices of the "tourist". The market in the summer. The big events of the times, it can be difficult to find a parking place.

  • An amazing place to visit and see the rich history of Fiskars and to imagine life back when Finland was basically Swedish. My favorite part is the different buildings which are mostly from quite different years and how well some of the oldest have lasted. It must have something to do with those slag bricks. I bet they are super tough. Have a peek in the shops but be prepared to encounter high pricetags. Also there is nowhere to get cash in the village itself. I went specifically to browse a local food market which was a little bit hampered because of course small mobile vendors can't be expected to take cards. Although many do! The permanent shops and restaurants are no problem with either form of payment. It seems to get busy on the weekends but there are several parking lots to choose from. Don't be afraid to pass the first one and drive a little closer.
  • Apart from understanding how Fiskars came to be, there's not much to get out of the place. You can have a coffee and see different shops shops selling artistic wares. The Fiskars shop gives no better deal than elsewhere.
  • This place is very quaint. Lots of nice old or old style buildings and a lovely creek running through. There is a nature trail nearby which I walked. On the other hand, it was too expensive for me personally. I think it's catered just to tourists with money, so I didn't even eat here. Just looked around, walked the nature trail, and then headed out to get something to eat at a more reasonable price. Nature trail itself is quite nice, though some parts of it are actual dirt roads with cars going by kicking up dust!
  • Great little village. Lot's of history, idyllic surroundings, lot's of artesans and wonderful restaurants. Enjoy easy and relaxing two day visit for example.
  • Loved this place with artisan products
