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. You can even stay in a youth hostel located inside the stadium. Olympic Stadium (Olympiastadion) is just one of the many highlights you can arrange to see using our online itinerary creator, Helsinki Edition.

  • The stadium was under construction and we couldn't even get near. Much construction material around and tourists were taking some photos from afar. This stadium is historic because it hosted the 1952 Olympics

  • I stayed at the hostel in the Olympic Stadium. And walk away from the Centre of fine walks. Lot of green around, stadium and tower stood in a quiet atmosphere.

  • The truth is that only we could see it on the outside because they are now in the works. But it is an Olympic Stadium. Little more to say. The views of the city from the tower are incredible as we have said.

  • 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.
  • Nice studium and fantastic view from the tower.
  • 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.
  • The first Olympiad after the world war I I was held here. And the street is named after the Finnish flying man Paavo Nurmi who won multiple Olympic gold medals.
