Sibelius Park & Monument, Helsinki

(4/5 based on 850+ reviews on the web)
Stroll by the sea at Sibelius Park & 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. Put Sibelius Park & Monument into our Helsinki vacation builder and find out what's close by, where to stay, and where to head next.

  • The picturesque Park of Sibelius (Finnish composer) in the old district of Helsinki, the original monument. I advise to visit.

  • Definitely one of the most famous tourist attractions. In the summer, you should take a picnic lunch and enjoy the Park, or walk in Meilahti to the beach where you will find a parilin good.

  • A monument that is very different to what you become accustomed to find in large parks. Impeccable sample of human art, surrounded by a picturesque countryside and with great views of the surrounding area. Worth a visit if you're in Helsinki. I liked it much.

  • We expected something much smaller, and less spectacular. Was completely bewildered by its beauty. Spent over half an hour hanging around, walking under and around the sculpture. V-e-r-y impressive. Only a shame that other tourists kept on flocking by the busloads, so you never get a quiet moment there.
  • The Sibelius Monument, resembling organ pipes, is made of welded steel with the bust of the composer on one side. The monument is one of Helsinki's most popular statues and one of the most well-known tourist attractions.
  • Very well-crafted pieces of art. Be sure to get up close to get good photos. Also, visit the surrounding area. It is very lush.
  • Beautiful views here but a bit far out from the city Centre
  • Nice monument. The shape and idea of it are quite interesting and the area around nice for a walk!
