A children's holiday

The holiday begins at the hotel. Take the lift to the top floor and look at the Finnish capital with binoculars which you can borrow from reception. In Finland, only Helsinki has the tram, metro and rollercoaster. Tram number 3 takes you to Linnanmäki for a great time, and to Sea Life to see the sharks. Linnanmäki provides 10 free-of-charge rides for small children and the fierce Kyöpelinvuori hotel for older children.

A children's holiday is not just a visit to the amusement park. It is also worth it to see the best scenery in Finland and say hi to the Canada geese at the Kaivopuisto park. You can borrow scooters so that the explorers can have the time of their life. Kaivopuisto also has a fun children's playground, a minigolf course and an ice cream kiosk of the Helsinki ice cream factory in the summer. The delicious ice cream is also available at Kamppi all year round. Ben & Jerry's is another tasty ice cream provider at Kamppi.

The Senate Square and Market Square are also at walking distance from us. The Helsinki Cathedral, i.e. the landmark of Helsinki, is located on the Senate Square. Take the steps and count them. Children's City, i.e. Helsinki's latest resort for children is located by the Senate Square. It is free of charge: get to know toys from different decades and an urban grandmother's apartment.

Take the ferry from the Market Square: to Korkeasaari in the summer and the Suomenlinna sea fortress all year round. A cruise is a natural part of your visit to Helsinki.
