Monument Nature / Park
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.

  • Impressive, the monument to the memory of Finnish GAM Sibelius. Duzenlenmesi and around the park. The convoy was to arrive here by bus and tram coming tourist location. I would recommend Gelinmesini

  • 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.
  • 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
  • A must if you visit Helsinki. The abstract monument was designed to embody the spirit of Sibelius’ music and it resembles a soundwave made of clusters of organ pipes (over 600 steel pipes).
  • Park is lovely. Love cycling trough here. Usually crowded with tourists wich is cool.
  • It's cool looking but only worth the trip if you go to the adorable little cafe across the street that is a must visit called Regatta

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.
