My first visit to the city of Helsinki was an unintentional one as we missed our flight to Ivalo after we stood a good 40 minutes on the runway in Hamburg due to the current constructions going on at the Finnish airport. We were put into the nearby Holiday Inn for the night and decided to get our diner somewhere in the city instead of the hotel’s restaurant.
A few days later, I returned intentionally to Helsinki in order to get to know the city a bit better. I booked a guided tour with Red Umbrella Tours but was not overly impressed by the tour guide. I left the group early and headed directly to the Tivoli Linnanmäki shortly thereafter.
