What are the best places to stay in Helsinki?
Kamppi is a popular neighbourhood located right in the heart of downtown Helsinki. Its diverse range of attractions, restaurants and shops make it a popular base for tourists holidaying on flights to Vantaa. Some of the top things to see and do around the neighbourhood include Old Church Park, Kamppi Chapel and the Helsinki Art Museum. Kamppi’s central location also means you’ll have access to plenty of public transport, and many of Helsinki’s top attractions are only a quick walk away.
Head north of Kamppi and you’ll find yourself in the popular neighbourhood of Töölö. The neighbourhood is teeming with historical and cultural attractions, including the National Museum of Finland and the Finnish National Opera and Ballet. Visitors holidaying on flights to Vantaa can also enjoy plenty of green space around Töölö plus an excellent dining scene. Browse accommodation options in Töölö after you book cheap flights to Vantaa if you want to stay central without being in the bustling tourist centre of Kamppi.
Kallio is a popular neighbourhood among students and young adults, and it’s one of Helsinki’s trendiest areas. It’s teeming with cool restaurants and cafes, boutique shops, and some of Helsinki’s best nightlife options. Kallio is more of a local rather than tourist neighbourhood, so there are less famous landmarks than there are in the centre. However, there are still plenty of places to see, such as Kallio Church and Hakaniemi Market Hall. Consider staying in Kallio while visiting Helsinki on return flights to Vantaa if you’re interested in seeing the eclectic and local side to the Finnish capital.
