Service vehicles and cycling
Suomenlinna is a car-free zone where only service vehicles are allowed. If you are, say, organising an event or need to transport goods, you can bring your vehicle to Suomenlinna on an HSL ferry or on the service boat which leaves from the Katajanokka wharf. More information on the website of Suomenlinnan Liikenne Oy.
