This Stadium is listed as one of the most beautiful stadiums. It was built in 1938, and the 1952 Olympic games were hosted here. The adjoining Tower is 72 meters high ( about 14 storeys high). That was the height at which Paavo Nurmi -- a decathlon Olympian -- threw his Javelin capturing a world record at the time. Of... More

The Olympic tower is the perfect place to see a beautiful overview of Helsinki. The lift up is rather small. The day we went it was quite windy at the top but was a sunny day. The facility is well maintained.

Great views of the city from the Olympic Tower. Half price if you show receipt from hop-on, hop-off tour buses. Elevator is small (3-4 people MAX). I would not recommend for someone with a wheelchair as they would experience difficulty.

Great place to go very tall building and not one for those who are scared of heights like none of my teenagers who refused to come up with us in the lift. Excellent views of Helsinki from the top.

The Olympic Stadiunique um was biult for Helsinki Olympic Games in 1952. It has unique, old time feeling and the tower is the must place to visit if you are in that part of town. You can see the whole Helsinki fron the tower.

Olympic stadium is a great place to see what the 1980's olympic standards were. There is a tower where you can go on top, they charge you 4 euros. The view from the top is fantastic and you can see the whole stadium from top. Also the panaromic view of helsinki city from there is outstanding.

This is a ‘must see’ on any visit to Helsinki, or indeed Finland. Thinking about Olympic stadia these days, Helsinki’s Olympic Stadium reeks of a purity of spirit that seems missing now. Just shows how much things have moved on. The tower is well worth it – the view of the city and the surrounding countryside is justification in itself... More

The Tower is worth a visit for the views of the archipelago and of Helsinki. You can visit the main arena but that is about all except for the famous Paavo Nurmi statue that is in the car park. Quite a walk from the city centre but doable.

You can climb by stairs to the top, but there is lift up. There is excellent view of the city. With Helsinki card you get the discount, then the entrance fee is 3€.

Worth visiting for its top view. It costs few euros to go to top and get a 360 degree view of Helsinki.
