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.

    Returned again after 5 years, and the exhibition was as good as before, if not better, the detail, presentation and quality of exhibits is really impressive, clearly a lot of thought has gone into the layout. For anyone, even slightly interested in motorcycle history this is the place to visit, as it shown a broad range of manufacturers. Some years ago, I visited the National Motorcycle Museum in Birmingham, UK, which is purely for UK manufacturers, and it was amazing to see how many UK manufacturers there were, literally 100’s! Certainly, I will be back to Lahti at some time in the future.

    Best acoustics I've ever heard in a wooden, eco-friendly building that still has presence and grandeur. Sibelius Festival totally unique experience. And fabulous views over the Lake. Inspired work by Tuomas Kinberg and others to get the Hall built.

    A fantastic little museum.

    The staff were great. Especially the young guy who explained to me and my son in English and Finnish what was there to see, how to interact with things and even took pics for us.

    My boy loved the interaction part and so did I. The ski jumping figures were my boys favourite. Mine was the shooting! I got 127m on the ski jumping simulator once too. Thats harder than it looks.

    The exhibitions are well kept, informed and very nice. Bit small but was free for my boy so I was happy with that.

    Go enjoy!

    Stopped in Lahti for pit stop and to Lahti Sports Complex with ice hockey, ski museum, outdoor swimming pool and ski jump towers. They lay plastic on the ski run and lubricate it with water so it can be used for practice when there is no snow. The
    pool had already been drained. Unfortunately, we only had time to visit the ski jump today.

    Lahti Harbor by Lake Vesijärvi offers a great environment for a summer day. There are various restaurants, ship restaurants, and cafes with terraces. Cafe Kariranta is a former train station building.

    In addition to restaurants, the port area has a Pro Puu center with galleries and design stores. The most striking building is Sibelius Hall, where you can admire the modern wooden architecture.

    Several different lake cruises depart from the port. You can choose a short lunch cruise, an evening cruise on the Vääksy canal, or travel through two canals to Heinola.

    There is a 15-minute walk from the city center and half an hour from the railway station.

    A fine new art museum in Lahti, Finland👍😀 It is located circa 100 km from Helsinki. By train it takes one hour. The building of Malva used to be a big brewery and the rooms are very big for art exhibitions.

    The Church of the Cross is designed by the famous Finnish architect Alvar Aalto. It was built in 1978.

    From outside it is not the prettiest churches in Finland. The building is dominated by a cross design formed by 52 windows and a massive belfry of concrete.

    The beautiful interior has a triangular form which directs the attention towards the altar. The interior has the same vibe as you can feel in the Finlandia House in Helsinki.

    The sculpture Spirit of Freedom by Wäinö Aaltonen stands in the cemetery for the war dead.

    The Lahti International Organ Festival is held here.

    This museum has both indoor and outdoor exhibition. Outside, you can find the old radio broadcasting building, with some activities. Inside, you get an overview of this AM stations history and the history of Finnish Broadcasting, both radio and TV. There are plenty of activities you can do - listen to samples, make a phonecall old fashion way, and of course you can buy some souvenirs and small staff. I recommend the salt liqourice (which Finns love). You can buy coffee to go during your visit. Everything is kept well and clean and the staff is super friendly.

    Lahti has grown in the last hundred years from a small township to a remarkable summer and winter attraction. The Lahti Historical Museum shows why and when the growth has happened.

    Pikku-Vesijärvi is a large pond connected to Lake Vesijärvi. It is surrounded by a lush park.

    In the Kariniemi Arboretum, surrounding Pikku-Vesijärvi, you can find 45 different tree species to grow.

    There is a small pond where is Lahti Energia's water organ. It is also called the musical fountain of Lahti.

    This house will be visited from further afield. Cafe / canteen on a flat lunch dining level. Guided tours worth a visit - available in several languages, guides professional. Interiors/exteriors worth seeing ...

    Some of the porters could be more friendly and take their customers into account: indoors, the sound of conversation and the voice of the conversation carries farther than you think - the criticism and other unnecessary buzz of fellow human beings could be left at home ...

    Lahti City Theatre is one of the biggest theatres in Finland. It is a concrete building completed in 1983.

    The building includes three auditoriums. The main auditorium sits 770 spectators.

    On our visit, there was a musical Sound of Music going. It was an excellent presentation. Although we were sitting in the last row, we had a good view.

    The intermission service worked well and the products were tasty.
