Helsinki Card

Helsinki Card

This Helsinki card is good everywhere, even the 18th Century.

The Helsinki Card from RailEurope not only includes unlimited free use of Helsinki’s public trams, buses, metro and Suomenlinna municipal ferries, but somewhere to take them to- over 50 popular museums and attractions with free entry. Including the Seurasaari Open Air Museum, a must-see that gives you a view of Finnish country life from the 18th to the 20th century. On it’s own island with 87 different buildings that are yours, free to wander. Or perhaps you’d prefer the National Museum of Finland, which begins at the Stone Age. Or a trip to and tour of Suomenlinna, one of the world’s largest historical maritime fortresses. You’ll even have access to discounts on everything from restaurants to concerts to sightseeing tours, including some by boat. So why not get the 24, 48 or 72-hour Helsinki Card? It’s a great way to save capital in the capital of Finland.
