Short break in Helsinki 30.11.-2.12.

Short break in Helsinki 30.11.-2.12.

A stop-over in Helsinki will give you a chance to relax and taste the cultural life of our capital.

Helsinki  is always full of  events, especially during the Christmas season from late November to 22.12. The traditional Christmas market at the Senate Square opens up at 10am on the 1st of December and is open on Saturdays and Sundays from 10am to 7pm. You can find here a lot of local, seasonal delicacies and hand-made products by local artisans.

We would also recommend you to include a cultural experience in your Helsinki weekend: 

  • Opera: The Phantom of the Opera Sat 1.12., Fri 7.12. and Fri 14.12. at 19.00
  • Ballet: Cinderella (suits well for the entire family) Fri 30.11. at 19.00, Sat 8.12. and Sat 22.12. at 14.00 and 18.00
  • If you are not interested in opera or ballet, there is always ice-hockey available.

Please note that tickets are not yet available so we cannot include them in prices. Opera or ballet typically costs depending on the ticket category from 76-119€/person and ice-hockey from 35-55€/person.
