I usually walk my dogs around the island. Takes about an hour. Wooden buildings are awesome. There's usually a fire at a small kiosk, where you can grill sausages. In winter they have nearby also the round sledge. Interesting place with Finnish history

Seurasaari is a great place to go for a walk, especially around Christmas time, as there are loads of activities in the island and you might be able to walk the ice path that leads there, if the weather permits. If not, loads of friendly squirrels and birds will come to your hand for a seed in exchange =)

Most people consider it number 1 place to visit in Helsinki but not me. It is a beautiful island, lots of trees and nice places to sunbathe during summer. Sometimes there are programs going on and those times it surely more interesting. There is open air museum but that costs.

I have been to Seurasaari Island last year (2014) with my family. It was mid autumn and there weren't no one in the island.

One of my favorites places in Helsinki. Perfect for a walk or for a barbecue during summer. Warmly suggested to go there to relax and enjoy nature close to the city.

An open air museum in the midst of the city. An absolute marvel for the locals. Great place for a day out in the nature. Easy and free access. Lotsa places to sit, relax and enjoy, either alone or with a group of friends. Tiny beaches and places to swim and BBQ.

Go at dawn , when the light is very special. The ferries from Helsinki are very frequent and cheap. The views back at Helsinki are every good. Interesting for photographers.

A beautiful way to while away a few hours. Very snowy when we went and nothing open, but I'm sure in the summer there would be. Definitely worth a visit.
