Why locals love it

One of those amazing Helsinki green places that's just a stone's throw from the city. A great spot for a picnic and some nature watching, it's a favourite for joggers throughout the year.

Why you should visit it

Wander across the bridge to this open air museum displaying 400 years of the traditional Finnish way of life. Explore cottages, farmsteads and other buildings that've been relocated to the island from around Finland. You’ll find plenty of birds and forest animals to amuse you here also. Don’t stumble across the island’s nudist beach by accident.

Special tip

Bring some tidbits to feed the cute and emboldened squirrels that will happily mount your trousers and scramble up your leg.

A really nice place to spend a few hours to walk around in. Interresting buildings with lots of history. And beautiful nature aswell.
