Cultural capital – with grand ambitions on behalf of the climate


Wooden architecture, constructed from local wood types; schools; Alvar Aalto’s numerous, well-preserved buildings – and old industrial harbours, which have been developed into residential areas are just some of the high points in Helsinki. The city has experienced massive economic growth over the past decade and the Finns have proved that they dare to take chances. 


Not least, Helsinki is interesting for municipalities and city planners for its part in an ambitious international program promoting public transport – and bikes – to get cars away from the city.


We can also arrange visits to the Finnish countryside and projects in Turku – as well as north to Bjørneborg and Tampere. 

Highlights from the program: ​​

  • Office building in the city center, constructed in CLT by the most predominant CLT producer in Finland

  • The new cultural centre, including the beautiful new meeting place, Oodi Central Library, designed by ALA Architects

  • Schools and learning environments: Finnish children achieve the highest scores in PISA tests in the world; guided tours from Finnish design studios

  • The world famous architecture of Alvar Aalto, from the university area, Otaniemi Campus to many others

  • Urban development and new infrastructure in two new city districts, including the new ferry terminal between Helsinki and Tallinn, used by many thousands of travellers on a daily basis  

  • Wood City: new urban quarter based on the vision of a sustainable, high-rise residential district, made solely from timber structures, as yet only partially realised

  • Youth housing – and experimental forms of housing

  • Culture (cultural centres, churches)

  • Visit to a public wooden sauna, listed on the New York Times Top100 places to visit around the world.


Number of days: 2-4 days
