  • A must is to go up the look out tower here at night. A small tower but amazing views over the city. Go here! 
  • The Olympic stadium can easily be reached by tram, entry into the Tower cost me as students about €2, this one certainly had the best views of all Helsinki! In addition to the Tower, there's not much to see, when I was there there was a small exhibition, which was included in the price. Clear recommendation in good weather, because otherwise the view is probably not that great.

  • Very nice place to visit. Old, definitely but still looking good. The tower is well worth visiting if weather is good.
  • Building is nice but becoming of course a bit old. Employees for visit were sympathetic at all. But still a thing to see when visiting Helsinki.
  • Nice place to visit, when there are competitions going on. The tower is fun to climb, and offers a fantastic view of the city.
  • Basic stadium. The view from tower is good though
  • The view from the tower is great and is half price with a tour bus ticket. But the thing I mainly remember is the good food... help yourself to salad,soup, main course and dessert for 10 euros. Worth a trip for sure.
