“Nice view”
Reviewed 20 October 2013

use your HC card and pay 3E to take the lift to the top of the tower. Nice view over city. It is a nice walk back into the city centre maybe 20 minutes

“Helsinki Olympic Stadium”
Reviewed 6 October 2013

Helsinki olympic Stadium was built in 1938 and in 1952 the Olympic games were hold there. Helsinki Olympic Stadium has been characterized as the world’s most beautiful Olympic Stadium. It is located very central in the city of Helsinki, so if you are there, take a tram or a bus (or walk) and go and have a look at it, it's definitely worth it!
The capacity of Helsinki Olympic Stadium is about 40 000 people (more in concerts). The plans to renovate the whole stadium thoroughly have progressed and a big renovation will start within the next few years. I look forward to see the result, but it also means that the stadium will be closed for a pretty long time. However, you can always give it a try, if the stadium is closed when you're visiting it, don't be sad. There is a lot more to see in the city.
When we are talking about the Stadium I also have to mention the Stadium Tower. it is a tower that stands next to the rest of the Olympic Stadium. It is 72 meters high and you can go up in it if you just buy a ticket. (5€ for adults, 2€ for children, and children under 6 are free) I visited the tower once, sadly was it a rainy day but although it was awesome. You can see the whole downtown of Helsinki! It is definitely worth to see! The pictures above is from my visit at the stadium, and from a light festival in Helsinki.
The Olympic Stadium also offers a very cheap hostel, so you can even sleep there! And a restaurant aswell (MON-FRI, 9am-4pm).
Days when the Olympic Stadium is closed for visitors are the following:

24-25th May
19th June 4pm-9pm
20th July
27th July
6th September

“If you like architecture”
Reviewed 21 September 2013

The stadium made for 1952 Olympic Helsinki Olympic games. That time the games were enough small for country like Finland. There are some history in that building. Good to see. Ont the way from the centrum you past Finlandia house and Opera house.

“Get up the tower and see the sports museum”
Reviewed 17 September 2013 via mobile

Went to the stadium on a quiet day and visited the top of the stadium tower and the sports museum which adjoins the stadium
The views from the tower are worth the 5 euro lift ride.
We also visited the small museum which has some great displays of equipment, medals and a little of the Olympic history.

“The tower has great views of Helsinki!”
Reviewed 15 September 2013

This was $5 EU, not a bad price to see the highest point in Helsinki. Great views even on a rainy day!
