Kaivopuisto is in my mind the most beautiful park in Helsinki area. It is not that big but with its small hills and proximity to the see it is a beautiful place to stroll. Be aware of the weather and especially high winds can make a visit less enjoyable. However, it is one of the best places to spend a... More

Have a wonderful stroll on the embankment with a magnificent view. This is a must - unless you come from a sea side town from another Nordic country. Quality cafes available.

In winter this is the place for sledge and in summer you can enjoy a picnic and park concerts on flat rocks and lawns. Leafy Kaivopuisto-Brunnsparken with its embassies and villas are the oldest and most famous of the parks in Helsinki

We spent a couple of hours walking around Kaivopuisto on a gorgeous summer day in June. The park is large with many spots that offer wonderful views of Suomennlina islands and the boat harbors. The ice cream was delicious and there are many places to sit down and relax or to enjoy a bite to eat.

My girlfriend loved the sunset and was really happy about having been there and watching the clouds changing the color from sunny yellow to dark purple. The sunset is lasting long so take time, a blanket, food and drinks with you! More local people than tourists.

We stopped here briefly to relax and eat the delicious strawberry that we bought from the local market before returning to the cruise-ship. This is a stop on the hop-on, hop-off bus which is a very nice way to see things around this beautiful city.

This is such a lovely part of Helsinki with so much green space and right next to the sea. We really enjoyed strolling along the adjoining boardwalk with ice cream from Helsingin Jäätelötehdas.

This is the best piece of Helsinki in summer. Sea, views, cafés, bars, boats, park, restaurants, ice cream- all in Kaivopuisto! Something for everyone. Enjoy sea and summer!

Large, flanked on three sides by water, this park sites at the southern end of the old town. It is best enjoyed on a warm day, as there is little to protect the visitor from any gust of wind or rain squall. there is a low hill (where the local astronomy club build a small dome for stargazers) which allows...
