Located on a hill not far from the centre of Helsinki you will find a theme park called Linnanmäki, translated into English this means ‘castle on the hill’. Unlike some theme parks where you have to buy a ticket to enter, at Linnanmäki viisitors can either purchase a wristband, a multi ride ticket or pay individually for rides. This means that you can just wander around the grounds taking a look at the action if fast rides aren’t for you.
Linnanmäki is pleasantly landscaped with many flowers – hanging baskets and tubs of bright red geraniums everywhere. There are several cafes but we didn’t eat at any, we just bought ice creams and sat on a bench to eat them. Getting to Linnanmäki is simple as there is a tram stop (no.3) just outside the park and it’s just a short journey from the city centre.
