The city by bus or tram

The sightseeing busses are on the road again. For those of you that just arrived to Helsinki or are anyway just here for vacation it might be a nice way to get around. With the Hop On Hop Off busses you get to see all the main sights of Helsinki and get information about them in eight different languages. Prices for a day ticket are between 25 and 35 Euros (depending which route you choose). More information about the busses, stops and times can be found here.

If you are not interested in the guided tour and rather want to read the information from your own traveler’s guide the tram line 3 might be a good and cheap alternative to a guided bus tour. Tram line 3 (depending on where you hop on it is either 3T or 3B) is a circle line operating in both directions. On the HSL website and on all tram stops you find a map of all lines.

A day ticket for the whole center can be bought for 7 Euros. The ticket prices (you need just one zone) are listed here.
