Helsinki Walking Tour & Finland’s Musical Heritage Discovery

Meet your expert guide at the Helsinki Cathedral and join a small group walking tour. For this extraordinary tour, a high-quality audio system with stereo headphones and receiver for each participant will be provided to assure good listening quality.

Immerse yourself in the inspiring world of music from Finland and forget everyday life for three hours. Listen to favorite, well-known (and lesser known) music by Finnish composers, musicians, and music groups. Learn how music is connected to history, important people, and the culture of Finland.

Explore the city on foot, see the sights, and districts as they come alive through magical, melancholic, tender, dynamic, or simply great feel-good music.

Listen to the music that has been a powerful force in Finnish history; it still shapes life in Finland today in fascinating ways.

As you listen to music, you will see: Senate Square, Uspenski-Cathedral, Marketplace at South Harbour with Presidential Palace, Esplanades, Train station, Kiasma Art Museum, Musiikkitalo Concert Hall, National Museum, Parliament Building, Art Nouveau buildings (Pohjola-Talo, National Theater), and the Chapel of Silence.

The Helsinki Musical Tour is all about enjoying the rich musical heritage of Finland. Hear the soothing sound of ancient Kantele and listen to Folk Music; also enjoy some rune singing.

There will be classical music by famous composer Jean Sibelius, melancholic Finnish tango, Pop music, Jazz, Rap, Hip Hop, Sámi Music, and world-famous Metal Rock (Hint: you can always control the volume according to your preferences).
