If you are visiting this place, do not miss the view of the city from the tower. We had only 8 hours in Helsinki and decided to take the top view of this wonderful city from the tower near the stadium and it was worth it. The entry is 5 Euros, but it gives a nice view of the landscape... More

If you are visiting Helsinki, this is a must see if you are travelling with guys. They have a nice collection of different sports equipments, medallions and so on.

This is a good argument in favor of holding the Olympics in the same place instead of forcing the 'winning' city to build a big venue to be used only one time. Walking around the grounds, even these many years after the olympics, is sufficient to give one goosebumps. It is well worth the time getting to see it.

The stadium is definitely worth a visit for sports nuts if visiting Helsinki. The entry fee of 5 euros that allows spectular views of the city from the top of the Olympic Tower is good value. There are two honour boards for the gold medalists of the 1952 Olympics behind the stadium. During my visit there was a woman from... More

The Olympic Statium catches your attention as soon as you lay your eyes upon it. Even if not as big as one might think, the structure blends toghether glass, white painted metal and wood, making it very pleasing to the eye, especially if it's a nice, sunny day. But the most important thing is that by the adjacent 72 meters... More

Sets you back 5 €, but as a trade off you get the best views of the City. 72 meters (or about 236 feet) high it's no skyscraper, but then again Helsinki's a pretty flat city, so the overall view is very nice, indeed. One of the definite places to visit. If you're really lucky you might catch a soccer... More

It's a nice view but that's all. A long walk from the centre of the city though. Peaceful area, we stayed in the stadium area but not worth seeing!

We visited the Olympic Stadium on a two day visit to Helsinki. The tower offers a nice view of the city, the stadium is standard and has little to offer for someone who has visited modern European stadiums.
