We enjoyed this stop with our local guide, Paulo. I'm a huge sports fan and love to see Olympic Stadiums as you can feel the history behind them. It's in a great condition still and I've been informed that they will be renovating it too. There is also a tower that has a lift as well as stairs. We were... More

Amazing view at the top, although quite cramped and cold. The stairs were out of use but I'm not sure why.

We went for both views of the city and to look at the 1952 stadium. It worked out very well. Firstly the sights from the tower, excellent, but pick a clear day (and will help if not too windy as it will be blowing more at the top). Lift takes you to 11th floor and then its a short climb... More

Not a must see but if you have the chance to go up at the top of the tower you lol probably be thankful to yourself, not the high view in Helsinki though, the fin air wheel is something special as well

The stadium is situated quiet far from centre of Helsinki (3km). There are Olympic wheels commemorated Olympic Games 1952 and Paavo Nurmi monument. Just near to the stadium you can see HJK Helsinki stadium. The tower stadium is the "feather in the cap" for the stadium

We visited as a family of four, cost us ten euro to spend time at the top of the tower. Worth saving for a cloud free day to get the best views. This was our second visit in 5yrs.

Probably the best place to get a glimpse of Helsinki, I was there in the middle of the day and was completely alone. Mind you, it can blow your head off at the top. And the building itself is impressive too.

This facility has been kept nearly exactly as it was when the Olympics were held here and it is very easy to get a sense of what it must have been like during the event. Make sure you pay the small fee to go up the tower and also go inside and sit in the seats for a while. Easily... More

I was really glad we came here - the views were awesome, even though it was a bit overcast. It was really fun wandering through the stands of the stadium and getting to experience it from all different angles. It's a must see!

I had been there the first time to attend the Athletics world championship in 2005. The stadium was built decades ago and is very old. It is small and very different from the vast modern stadiums that have been built to accommodate the recent olympic games and to host the most prominent foot-ball teams. However, it is a very friendly... More
