Probably, I was just unlucky with the weather, but I wasn't really impressed. The one and only thing I _loved_ was the Teddy Bear museum! It's small, but so cute. So, the visit to the fortress island wasn't worthless :)

Suomenlinna should be visited in the summer. The restaurants are quite OK. If you wish to sit and watch boating life there is a restaurant at the marina with a nice terrace.

We took the public transportation boat to the island early during a grey october morning. The boat was almost empty. Since we rented bikes we got our bikes with us (7 euros) which requires some affinities with automatic ticked machines. But on the island the bikes where really nice to tour the trails. The fortress itself is impressive but what I was most impressed with was the daily life of those living on the island. Overall a very nicely spent morning

Off the ferry and walk around the islands connected by footbridges. So much to sea & a great walk. Interesting spaces to explore, cannons & gunpowder stores, Kings Gate drawbridge, fortress walls, wooden shipbuilding hall, even a small beach! Plenty of cafes & restaurants. Brilliants day out. Windy so wrap up on the ferry & walking around on exposed sea paths.

Walking around Suomenlinna was definitely one of my favorite moments of our vacation in Helsinki. Such a lovely place. WEAR COMFORTABLE SHOES that are sturdy and not slippery. There are many cobblestone roads that you are walking around on and it can be a bit tricky.
