The card is available for 24, 48, or 72 consecutive hours and is activated and time stamped the first time you use it. Prices start at 35€ for a 24-hour pass, and as with any tourist card, the more places you visit the more you’ll save.

Public transportation is also included, and you can get a 30% discount on Finnair Airport buses with the card. The Helsinki Card also includes a free Audio City Tour worth 27€ and free transportation and admission at the UNESCO World Heritage site Suomenlinna Sea Fortress.

The card comes with a guidebook English, German, Russian, Swedish, and Finnish. The website also lets you design your own preferred itineraries based on themes and interests.

What’s Good?

Free transportation and admission at Korkeassari Zoo and Suomenlinna Sea Fortress are both excellent values.

What Could get better?

There are no line-skipping privileges with the Helsinki Card. When you present it at an attraction, the attendant will write down your card number, so it’s not a quick swipe-and-go process.

Get Your Money’s Worth

This pass is best for avid museumgoers, as you will have to visit at least three to make a 24-hour card worth the cost.

Insider Tips

The Audio City Tour is a 90-minute narrated bus tour with headphones that allow you to listen in Chinese, English, Finnish, French, German, Italian, Japanese, Latin, Russian, Spanish, Swedish, and Helsinki dialect. It’s a good way to get oriented as you begin your visit to Helsinki.

Trams 3B and 3T on public transportation are also good ways to sightsee downtown, but don’t include narration.
