Helsinki: Winter Garden

p10006601The winter garden in Helsinki is a beautiful place, which any visitor can go to (if they find it!) and have a bit of a break in. In the summer time they have a beautiful rose garden outside, and the indoor garden is open all year around. Indoors they have a lot of benches and tables, where everyone can sit down and enjoy their packed lunches at even when it is cold outside. There is also a pond with fish in, and the room with cactus’ finally thought my children to listen when I say “do not touch” ;). My toddlers, 1,5 and 3 yo loved this little visit!


The only downside is short open hours: Mondays closed, Tuesdays 9am-3pm, Wednesdays-Fridays 12-3pm, Saturdays and Sundays 12-4pm.

The garden is at Hammarskjökdintie 1.
