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.

  • Sports lovers can go there a jump, but all you can do is walk, from the outside, because unfortunately the stadium is closed for renovation until 2019. Shame you can't climb the Tower, which is definitely the main attraction of this sports facility. On the other hand walking in the surroundings is not bad: you'll be pretty close to Sibelius Park and winter garden (Talvipuutarha), two places that deserve to be seen.

  • It is the largest stadium of Finland. It is located 2 kilometres from the Centre of Helsinki. Today the stadium is used for concerts and some sport activities.

  • 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.
  • Very nice place to visit. Old, definitely but still looking good. The tower is well worth visiting if weather is good.
  • You get an excellent view from the tower, the price is not expensive.
  • 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.
  • An old Olympic stadium that seems a bit out of date. Nonetheless, it is still serving its purpose.

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.
