Seurassi is only a short walk from my apartment and I visit it often. Its a great place to picnic, walk the dog, take photos or just to go and relax. I would say going in the summer is the best because it will be slightly harder to venture there when the ground is wet or covered in snow. Its... More

The island has good roads and trails to go around. The atmosphere is nice. It is like going almost 300 years back. The buildings are from the 18th to 20th centuries. You can also enjoy coffee and pastries (and ice cream!). Please use public transportation (bus 24) from Helsinki City South. The island is open during summer, from 15.5.2017.

We took a tram to the island and had a good walk around, everything was closed the day went but it was a pleasant walk even though below freezing.

We went at a poor timing at about 2plus in winter season, therefore there's only about 1 HR of daylight left. This place is huge and shd be given more time. Can start of with this attraction first before heading to the rest in the same area. It's all houses and buildings of the Folks from all over Norway regions... More

This is a lovely place to visit especially during summer days. My personal tip is to buy unsalted nuts (maapähkinä) and share them with squirrels, they're very tame and will come eat from your hand :) The birds prefer seeds but they too will come eat from your hand if you let them! Seurasaari can also be very beautiful during... More

Staying not far away from there we decided to visit it also. And haven't regret at all. Pay for entrance and get in. Very nice place to see. Lots of historical wooden buildings from the Finland countryside history. Most of those houses are open so you can enter and see then internally. In some of them the museum people are... More

We got the bus 24 over to Seurasaari from Esplanade square. We spent around 2 hours here wandering around with snow falling around us. It was an amazing time! Stunning scenery and interesting information about the buildings and history of the area. There was a lovely cafe that we stopped off at to warm up and had some lovely Glöggi... More

One of the best sightseeing in Helsinki. Seurasaari has enough to see for all day. Maybe few more cafe's could be adding to the great experience. Squirrels are so tame they eat from hands. History with Nature - Amazing Daytrip. Higly recommended if you have few days to spend in Helsinki.

This worth a walk there and reading the information about every house and boat there. The landscape is very nice and you can easily see some squirrels, very nice!!
