We serve you responsibly

All service providers in Suomenlinna are committed to ensuring their customer service will be carried out safely. The premises will be cleaned more frequently, visitor numbers will be limited, and staff safety will be taken care of with plexiglasses installed at counters. There will also be antiseptic hand rub at your disposal.

Ferries operate with safety in mind

Suomenlinna is only accessible by water. Therefore, the public transport ferries (HSL) will take good care of the safety of their passengers and personnel on board.

HSL monitors passenger numbers and official guidelines related to the pandemic carefully. The number of passengers will be reduced until further notice. You can reach Suomenlinna daily from Helsinki Market Square. During business days (Mon-Fri) you can also reach Suomenlinna with the service ferry from Katajanokka. On board the service ferry, there is a lot more space on deck. More info about HSL ferries.

On board the ferry you also have the possibility to enjoy the crisp sea air on deck.

Help us act responsibly

We ask all visitors to follow instructions related to the coronavirus situation.

Let’s keep the necessary safety distances and take care of good hand hygiene! We recommend paying by card instead of cash at any of the services. We recommend wearing a face mask on public transport and in indoor public places and always, when close contacts cannot be avoided.

Here you can find updated information and instructions on the coronavirus pandemic published by the Finnish Institute for Health and Welfare.


There is plenty of outdoor space to move around at the fortress, and smaller events can be arranged with safety in mind.

Events organised at the fortress will be added to our opening hours and events calendar.
