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 and waterbuses to operate with safety in mind
Suomenlinna is only accessible by water. Therefore, the public transport ferries (HSL) and JT-Line waterbuses 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.
JT-Line waterbuses operate to Suomenlinna, Lonna and Vallisaari. Only a limited number of passengers will be allowed on board at a time to ensure passenger safety.
On board the ferry and the waterbus, 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.
Large public events will not be organised in Suomenlinna. 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.
