Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

A lot of things here, boat building, restaurants and shops. Also some small happenings every now and then. Still not that fascinating, it left us a bit disappointed.

An interesting destination right next to the city center. Here you can see a good cross-section of how the sea and the people of Åland belong together. In addition, a few shops.

The Maritime Quarte (or the Sjökvarteret) is an interesting place near the center of Mariehamn. Lots of old maritime sheds and workshops, boats and some restaurants too. I especially liked the tiny old Seafarers' chapel; it was so cute standing alone in the end of the "pier".

We thoroughly enjoyed our visit to this small pretty area alongside the water. Several of the old buildings were used for crafts and traditional boat building, which was very interesting. There were plenty of old photographs too unfortunately there wasn't really any information in English. local produce, drinks and snacks were for sale. Alongside the wooden jetties there were boat houses, an old small ship which you could wander around and a fisherman's church. Certainly worth a visit.

You will find this place from the eastern harbor of Mariehamn, 10 minutes walk from the city center.

Here is still boat building activity, a smithy, and other handicrafts. You can visit a museum or stroll around the traditional style Åland marina for traditional ships and wooden boats. Furthest you will find a Seafarers’ chapel.

From the shops, you can buy Åland handicrafts. Pub Niska is serving pizza, other food, and drinks.

So many things to see and do in this quarter. It really is a small destination unto itself. From a shop to restaurant to boat building, there is a bit of everything. Great fun to wander about.

If you have the possibility, better go to Käringsund, the harbour there is much nicer. This one in Mariehamn has huge potential of becoming a wonderful open-air museum, but it's not there yet.

You can easily come here by walking, around 10 minutes from the center. I really liked the old buildings in the area. There was one nice craft shop, where you can buy some local handmade souvenirs.

Beside these there was not much for me to see or do.

After arriving at the big ferry harbour, going on a day-trip from the new yacht harbour, after having visited the Maritime Museum and the windjammer 'Pommern' a further enjoyable experience in Mariehamn, that town so closely connected to the sea, was a stroll through the 'Sjökvrarteret', the Maritime Quarter not far from the actual yacht harbour on Österhamn.

There are about 30 traditional buildings, often painted in that typical Swedish falun red, around a boatyard, where schooners, galleasses and all kind of wooden boats have and still are being constructed. There are workshops and sheds, where one can watch work going on. Besides that one finds two handicraft shops 'Salt' and 'Guldviva' (mostly for jewellry), then the pub 'Niska', a seafarers chapel on a breakwater, a reconstructed beacon from a pilot station and a harbour full of traditional boats.

If you like old wooden boats, this Maritime Ouarter is for you !
This is an area just east of Mariehamn center, with docks where dozens of beautiful wooden boats are tied up......- a true gem to visit for boat lovers !
There is always work going on, there is also a small museum, a chapel, old houses with workshops, and even a bar/pub (at least in the summertime) !
Well worth a visit !
