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.

    Love it. Amazing place for a walk in the woods with lots of hidden things to find.

    Went on a family walk for a few hours in the sun and it was much more than we expected.

    Highly recommended. Will go again.

    Häme castle plays an important part in Finnish history. Not big, but plenty to see, including corridoors and winding staircases kids will love.

    The castle surroundings are also beautiful. There's also a nice small playground for kids. Free parking.

    TIP:

    You can get a combination ticket for the two other sights that are closely linked with the castle, both historically and geographically: the prison museum and the military museum of the old garrison. The three walk you through lots of interesting history - and is real value for money.

    A lovely little museum in a great location. You don't need a lot of time to visit, but I chose to stay a little longer and soak in the calm atmosphere. Sibelius's wonderful music in the background is a great touch, and the staff is incredibly helpful.

    This wooden house was an upper-class residence from late 19th century. It presents the lifestyle of a bourgeois Hämeenlinna family 100 years ago.

    There are many rooms for different purposes, ranging from the elegant drawing room to the servants’ kitchen.

    The museum can be visited only with a guided tour. They start every 30 minutes.

    We were the only ones on our tour and got an interesting 50-minute trip to the past.

    EVO has a large number of hiking trails of varying distances that caters for every need - from short distances to really long ones. Most of these take the hiker through the Finnish woods along lakes and over ridges through breathtaking nature scenes. This is an experience not to be missed! Strongly recommended, especially in the summer months!

    Hämeenlinna Art Museum has always well established exhibitions with reasonable amount of works for about 1 hour visit. Certainly a must visit in Hämeenlinna.

    During our visit to Hämeenlinna we visited this place and spent about 2 hours taking a slow stroll and just sitting next to the lake. There is also an outdoor swimming pool, adventure park and cafe at this place.

    This museum is located in a beautiful Art Nouveau building where was the Skogster department store opened in 1907.

    Downstairs is a museum shop and a small Hämeenlinna exhibition. The video showing the history of Hämeenlinna was the most interesting thing here.

    On the upper floor are changing special exhibitions and the Savings Bank Museum exhibition.

    On our visit, the special exhibition was Tales of the Spiritual World which contemplates supernatural phenomena. We were only visitors and in some points, the exhibition was quite scary. The sounds were so realistic.

    The entrance to this museum is free.

    The Town Hall of Hämeenlinna is located by Market Square.

    The French Renaissance building was completed in 1888.

    In addition to the town's own use, the premises are leased to the community for a banquet and conference place.

    Medieval church worth to visit. The mass held every Sunday at 10 and it is open to visitors. Church is just next to open air museum and old village center with pictoresque houses and views to the lake.
