“Inspiring view”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 28, 2014

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 high tower, you can have one of the most beautiful views of the city. From Senaatintori to the Market Place to the Katajanokka peninsula every main sight of Helsinki is visible from up there. The fee is 5 €, 3 € with the Helsinki Card (which I definitely recommend), and it's totally worth it.

Going down one can visit the Sport Museum, where there're some hisoric insights into the Olympic games.

“Hop to the Top”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 21, 2014

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 game down there!

“Meh!”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed July 19, 2014

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!

“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.
