Within a few hundred meters of the Radisson Blu Aleksanteri, Helsinki are two culturally important sites, the magnificent Aleksanteri Theater and the Sinebrychoff Art Museum. The first was built in the late 1800’s and has since been the best place to experience plays and operas in the Finnish capital. The latter displays many incredibly valuable and popular works by the European masters of art and offers guided tours, events and exhibitions.
Guests with an interest in shopping and culture will find the hotel’s location in the trendy Punavuori and Design Districts very convenient. Around the corner is Helsinki’s best place to shop, the Boulevard shopping street, which is lined with shops, restaurants, cafés and galleries.
In the Design District you can also discover the Design Museum and the Museum of Finnish Architecture, two brilliant places to start for an introduction to the famous Finnish world of design. The best way to explore the area is to walk around and see where your feet take you, but there are also guided tours available, like for example the Design Walk tour.
If you are visiting during the summer season you can catch the Hietalahti Flea Market in the square next to Hietalahti Hall, just a stone’s throw from the hotel. The vibrant market is open as long as the weather permits it and visitors can find everything from luxury items to fresh fruit and vegetables. Try some street food from one of the stalls and soak up the atmosphere while hunting for treasures.
There are many things to see and do in Helsinki, no matter if you are traveling for business or leisure. Corporate travelers can also enjoy proximity to a number of local businesses, offices and agencies such as Golla, N2, Lumi Accessories and SEK & Grey.
