    Not London, not LA, and not Paris either: No, the honorary title of World Design Capital belongs to Helsinki - at least in 2012. Our travel report for Helsinki will show some highlights of the city. Read more

    Although it's a fairly busy airport, this one is surprisingly calm. Nice spaces, clean, lots of places to eat. Grab yourself a Fazer chocolate at a shop and get acquainted with Moomin while you wait.

    Free WiFi. Comfortable seats. Big grocery shop, Alepa, in T2. Good coffee in both, T1 & T2. Steadily becoming an efficient, smooth, and peaceful hub for Eurasian travel.

    The Uspenski Orthodox Church was built in 1868 and has the flavor of the Russian period, with red brick architecture. The church is one of the largest orthodox churches in Europe and has 13 domes.

    Go Sleep pods, if free, are great for private dark sessions, online, or asleep. Not all the buttons always work, and the usbs and power outlets are optionally on though...

    Rent a mobile broadband for your visit in Finland. It is the best way to use Internet while traveling. Get it from Zonga in Arrivals terminal 2A or Avis desk in the corridor between terminals 1 and 2.

    Best waiting place at gate 24 of T2. A meter away from main entramce to gate there are two tables with the most comfortable chairs at the gate. Enjoy the waiting time!

    If you r looking for breakfast and have a little time to spare, go to gate 14a there is a breakfast buffet. For €14 you get a lot more for ur money than just buying a sandwich at one of the kiosks

    Extra time before check-in or after landing? Go check out the awesome pan pizzas in the Cesar's Food Court in the T2 basement. One pepperoni pan pizza will easily feed two adults!

    Great for food shopping but don't rely on it as they run low on stock easily (if you are looking for Finnish food). Great luxury and kitchenware shopping options

    One of the best airport I've ever been. It is not so crowded, no big queues on check in and security control, free WiFi. Also you can find many electrical outlets here.

    The departure hall is right next to the gates, quick service and very clean and neat. Not a massive amount of shops. Non-schengen gates are far away, go to pass control well ahead of time!!

    Check from which terminal your flight is departing - there are two of those! Free wi-fi available on all airport. If you are in need for some coffee - Starbucks is near the entrance on T1.

    There's free WiFi which actually works. The most convenient way to get downtown is on the Finnair bus. You can purchase tickets from the information desk or on the bus itself.

    One of the most convenient airports in the world. It took me just 10 minutes from the cab to the gate. Oh and they have a pretty fast free wifi.

    Passenger-friendly airport, one of my favourites in the world! If you dislike transiting at LHR or FRA, you should consider here, its much more pleasant than those airports

    First of all, purchase prepaid SIM card at KIOSK before heading to Helsinki city !! And if you have single ticket for a train, do not forget to validate a ticket on a train.

    There are "sleeping pods" dotted around the airport where you can lie on a flat bed, isolate the noise by closing in a shutter - even charge your phone inside! Get snapped up really quickly though.

    Small and nice airport with free-wifi. Try to eat before the security-control, is cheaper (in Picnic or in the restaurant near the hotel entrance in terminal 2, I can't reamember the name!)

    If you travel to/from Tampere, take bus 61 to Tikkurila, then Pendolino train to Tampere city center. Fast, easy and cheap. And the train has WiFi!

    With the Stockmann First card you can go to the Finnair non-Schengen lounge. There's also a buffet food place downstairs if you want to eat but don't want to spend a lot.

    I spent a night here. It was difficult to find a AC plug. I found one in the passage from T2 to T1 in behind the seats almost in T1, near Europcar and corner with cafeteria.

    Use the Finnair bus only 6.30€. Makes a few stops (certain hotels on request) before reaching the Helsinki rail station. Only a 30 min trip.
