Sibelius Monument, Helsinki

#2 of 120 in Parks in Finland
Stroll by the sea at Sibelius Monument, which commemorates Finnish composer Jean Sibelius. Designed by Eila Hiltunen and completed in 1967, the structure features over 600 steel pipes fused together with a bust of the composer to represent the music of Sibelius. Photograph this 24-ton work of abstract art, which is also one of Helsinki's most popular tourist attractions. Some say they can hear music playing here with the sound of wind moving through the hollow pipes.

    If you visit in the right time, the right season, when tourists are not all over the place, you will certainly enjoy it. It is bigger than what you would imagine from pictures... Make sure to walk aro...  more »

    Day tour of Helsinki included this monument in a park in a quite area of town. Quite understated in one sense but yet dramatic and odd at the same time. Worth a look and feel - quite a tactile place. ...  more »

    Worth a visit . A bit of a walk from the centre but do able it take a bus ride to get off closeby. Good place for a picnic or a drink. There is a small cafe closeby.

    Wonderfully positioned in a quiet park, few tourists and seagulls. Pleasant view of the sea and paddle boarders in summer. God knows what the view is like in winter.

    An interesting monument in a nice park, but VERY touristy - there were hordes of people queuing up to get there photo taken in front of it, dropped off by several tourist buses. It's interesting if you're nearby but in my opinion it's not worth going out of your way for.

    This remarkable and very avant-garde monument is located in a charming park. I think that anyone who admires Sibelius is will enjoy the visit here

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.
