Maybe I'm just not cultured enough, but I'm not sure why this is a stop on all the city tours? Could easily have seen this on a drive by and not missed much.

Good iconic place - we took a tram from Senate Square to Toloon Halli (sounds like a Karnataka name). In a short walk, reached this place. It is a good one for few photos - a smaller version of the monument seems to be in UN headquarters in New York city. Walk a little - a nice looking lake, frozen at the time of our visit with cafe at the end. Temporary toilets are near that place with confusing door signs. We had a good walk from here to beautiful Rocky wall church Temppeliaukio, name seem to suggest it must have been called a temple. One more interesting this that, lot of Helsinki street names sounds like Mankatu, Sofiakatu etc - there are places in Tamilnadu that ends with "Katu" meaning remote area or forest.

The monument itself is located near the lake, but is not well marked to get there from all entrances. Best to use some sort of map / navigation to find it, particularly in winter. Quite lovely monument, but would benefit from some sort of explaination -- is it a graphic representation of a particular piece (aka Finlandia)?

This was a bit too slippery for us to get close when we visited in January but still worth seeing from afar and learning about the symbolism behind the design and the artist who created it. It’s a must see whilst in Helsinki.

Jean Sibelius was born in 1865 in Hämeenlinna in the Grand Duchy of Finland, then part of Sweden. He is perhaps best remembered for his 1899 tone poem "Finlandia", which he wrote as a protest against increasing Russian censorship. It featured strongly in the score to the 1990 film "Die Hard 2: Die Harder". Sibelius is today widely recognized as Finland's greatest composer. He was featured on the 100 mark note until the old currency was replaced by the Euro, and the country's 'flag flying day' has been celebrated on his birthday (Dec 8) since 2011.
The Sibelius Monument, located in Sibelius Park in central Helsinki, was unveiled in 1967. ten years after the composer's death. The design was the winner of a lengthy competition. It features a 24-tonne construction of more than 600 hollow, steel pipes arranged in a wave-like pattern, along with a sculpture of the composer's face, which sits atop a wall alongside the main structure. A smaller version of the monument can also be found at the headquarters of UNESCO in Paris.

Sibelius Park is one of the must-see attractions when you are visiting Helsinki. The park is not big but very nice and quiet. The metal monument devoted to Finnish composer Jan Sibelius is the main place of the park. The monument looks unusual - it is made from metal pipes, symbolizing nature and harmony. Very nice place to walk there and enjoy.

The park is average, not that special. It is a little further from Helsinki city centre. The only thing of note is the sibelius monument

This seaside park was named after Finland's greatest composer Jean Sibelius (1865-1957) on his 80th birthday in 1945.

The grounds are kept in a somewhat natural state. Old birch trees shade park benches. The park is meant to reflect the rugged natural beauty of Finland, as inspired by Sibelius's music.

The highlight in the park is the Sibelius Monument designed by Eila Hiltunen and unveiled in 1967.
