Host of the 1952 Olympics, Olympic Stadium (Olympiastadion) now supports sporting events, concerts, and Finland's national soccer team. Originally built for the 1940 Olympics, which were cancelled because of World War II, this stadium was completed in 1938. The arena can hold more than 40,000 people at a time, making it the largest in Finland. Come to watch a soccer match or see a live performance. Tour the arena and walk through exhibits at the Sports Museum of Finland. Then make your way to the top of the stadium tower for views of Helsinki.

  • We went here in the hope of both seeing the Olympic stadium and perhaps having a glimpse of the famous eagle owls that are on the area. Neither happened. The stadium was being renovated and you could not get too close to it. And the Finnish bird group are quite rude and never reply to any emails regarding getting help to see the birds. Very disappointed.
  • Great experience, lovely place to visit.
  • Unfortunately it’s under reconstruction. Impossible to get in.
  • Very nice place to visit. Old, definitely but still looking good. The tower is well worth visiting if weather is good.
  • I have working in Olympic Stadium for about 6 to 7 months and it was more like my home because I work there all day and sometimes night shift.

Where to stay in Helsinki

Set yourself up with easy access to many of Helsinki's most popular tourist sites by staying in the city's bustling and modern center. You'll find that the area is packed full of shops, restaurants, and bars, plus it's conveniently close to both the city's main train station and energetic waterfront. Though there's certainly a range of options when it comes to big-name hotel chains and upscale accommodation, prices are generally higher throughout most of the center, so consider staying at a hostel to cut down on costs. Hostels typically offer a solid location in or near the city center at a fraction of the cost of a big chain.
