  • 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.
