What to do while in Helsinki

What to do while in Helsinki

Since Helsinki is located along the water, there are numerous opportunities for boat trips, kayaking and more. Must-visits in the city include the Helsinki Cathedral, and the design district for the best of Scandinavian design, including the Kamppi Chapel of Silence and Lonna Island. A weekend drive to Nuuksio National Park is a must, and so is a visit to the 18th-Century Seurasaari’s Open-Air Museum.
Winter in Helsinki

Winter in Helsinki

Winter in Helsinki ushers in annual exhibitions, concerts, festivals, and sports events. Enjoy the Winter Sports Fair at the Helsinki Far Center and more. Helsinki has numerous wood-heated saunas that are open to the public, and if you are brave enough, you can try a bit of ice swimming to cool yourself down after the hot sauna.

Well organized rental station, however the signs in the car park to pick uo the rental cars could be improved to be better guided when picking up the car.

Return to Airport was a big hassle. SIXT destination in GPS took me to a dumpster in restricted area. “Rental return” was not properly marked and return to SIXT was thru a small opening at the end of a gas station lot. As long as construction is going on, inform clients at the time of rental how to return car and provide a map or drawing. Otherwise, great service ..!
Phillip H.
Smooth renting, the service was good and fast. I arrived late but the place still had a person there to get me the car. The car was like new and everything went good. I can highly recommend Sixt in Helsinki airport and i will be using them again in the future.
