Midsummer 2019 in Suomenlinna
Midsummer celebrations are right around the corner. Helsinki quietens down during Midsummer, but the majority of the services in Suomenlinna will continue to serve visitors throughout the Midsummer holidays. We invite you to come to Suomenlinna to visit museums, enjoy a good meal or perhaps take a guided tour to learn more about Suomenlinna’s colourful past.
Ferry and waterbus operate from morning till evening
During Midsummer, from 21 to 23 June, Suomenlinna ferry will operate according to the weekend schedule. JT-Line waterbus commutes during Midsummer as well. Timetables for the waterbus can be checked here.
Visit museums or join a guided tour
All six museums in Suomenlinna are open throughout the Midsummer holidays. A combined ticket for the museums is available for the price of €19. The combined ticket is valid throughout the summer, until 30 September. The museums also accept the Finnish Museums Association’s “Museokortti” – Museum Card.
Guided tours are available daily in four languages: English, Finnish, Swedish and Russian. Tickets for the guided tours also include admission to the Ehrensvärd Museum located in the former Commandant’s House during opening hours of the museum.
Restaurants and cafés serve hungry and thirsty visitors
Getting a full stomach or quenching a thirst is easy in Suomenlinna also during Midsummer. Many of the restaurants and cafés are open throughout the Midsummer holidays. Stop by for a cup of coffee, lunch or maybe a taste of Suomenlinna Brewery’s beers.
