“A nice view from the tower”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed July 19, 2014

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.

“Cool View of Helsinki”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 18, 2014

Not much to see but from the top of the tower you can see all of Helsinki and it's interesting landscape as well as read about the Olympics that were hosted there. Nice quick stop!

“Just a driveby on our tour”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed July 17, 2014

On our city tour (not Hoponhopoff), the Olympic Stadium was just a photo stop so we didn't see much of this structure from the parking lot. We didn't even get off the bus! Really, this sight is just a little more than a driveby on the way to other sights in the area on some city seeing tours. The Olympic Stadium is a distance from the center of town so one would have to be a sports enthusiast to come here using public transportation, IMO, but then be sure it is open for a quick look around inside. My rating reflects what I saw from the bus window more than the potential of this place as a tourist sight.

“Very interesting sports museum”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 5, 2014

Great to see this complex still in use more than 60 years after the 1952 summer Olympics. It still looks pretty good too. The sports museum is really interesting and the views of Helsinki from the tower are pretty good.

“Outstanding Views and a reflection on how sports used to be”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 29, 2014

The stadium is interesting in the building simplicity and highlights how much we now pour into sports in western nations. I doubt the seats here have changed since the 1952 Olympics. It was great to go up the tower and see amazing views of Helsinki as well as to visit the statue of the Flying Finn.

There was something about this visit that spoke about how sport has moved from being a good thing for the sake of sport rather than what it is now - overtaken by money.
