Ferry takes you to the wintry Suomenlinna Sea Fortress

If you are planning a winter break in Helsinki, the Suomenlinna Sea Fortress is definitely one of the places to visit. A ferry service runs to Suomenlinna from the Market Square every day of the week.

In winter, the ferry runs at the most every 40 minutes. The first service leaves at 6.20am every day, the last at 2.20am.

Although summer is definitely the high season for visiting Suomenlinna, the fortress island has been steadily increasing in popularity as a winter destination. In February 2016, 27,000 people visited Suomenlinna. The previous year the figure was 22,500.

There are many exhibitions, museums, cafés and restaurants for visitors to  enjoy around the year. During the school winter  break in southern Finland, 20-26 February, entry to the Military Museum is free.

In addition, the Toy Museum is open on Saturday 25 and Sunday 26 February. There are also guided tours in English on weekends.

All HSL’s tickets, including the mobile ticket, are accepted on the Suomenlinna ferry. There is also Suomenlinna ticket that costs five euros and is valid for 12 hours, allowing plenty of time for a round-trip.  

You can buy a Suomenlinna ticket in advance on a single-charge card or from a ticket machine at the Market Square or Katajanokka terminals. The tickets bought from a ticket machine are valid from the moment of purchase. You can also buy a group ticket for 2-31 passengers
