Kallio Neighborhood Free Tour

At 12 pm, we'll meet at Unioninkatu Street in Helsinki to start a walking tour to discover the more residential side of the Finnish capital - the Kallio district!

Our walking tour will start in the Kallio district, where we'll learn about its humble origins. Did you know that it was once a working-class neighborhood? Today it's one of the most unique, creative, and alternative areas of Helsinki. Quirky cafes, unusual stores, and vintage clothing markets flourish can be found on every corner.

During the free tour, we'll admire the exterior of the Kallio Church, a Lutheran temple from the early 20th century that stands out for its large granite tower. Did you know that this building played a role in the Finnish Civil War? We'll tell you all about it on our tour!

Next, we'll be able to see the facade of the neighborhood library, stroll through the Hakaniemi market, full of traditional Finnish products, and admire the popular Long Bridge. While we explore the area, we'll tell you some interesting facts and historical details about the Kallio neighborhood. We'll find out where the former president of the country usually takes her coffee or how the enforcement of the Finnish Prohibition Law affected this district.

Lastly, we'll go back to the starting point, ending the tour after two hours.
