We made the half-hour walk from the city centre to visit the Olympic Stadium, only to find it surrounded by boarding, and closed for comprehensive reconstruction. We found one construction worker who told us that this work had begun earlier this year, and that it was scheduled to take until 2019 before completion. The tower of the stadium, supposedly offering... More

A must is to go up the look out tower here at night. A small tower but amazing views over the city. Go here!

Sadly this iconic stadium is closed and there is no access to the wonderful tower while the whole place is undergoing renovation. Not a criticism by any means and you can still admire it from the outside, but just a warning for any fellow travellers wanting to see this place which has such a rich and interesting history.

Many years have passed by from the Olympic Games here in Helsinki, but the Stadium, as well as the rest of the Olympic complex, looks very well conserved and actual in its architectural concept. It deserves a visit

It is convenient to get to by train and is located right next to the new HJK soccer stadium. The Olympic stadium was an average stadium that was under renovation in Nov. 2016.

Well, there is nor much to say really. The Olympic Stadium Of Helsinki is under reconstruction. However, noone bothers to tell on homepages that's the fact. So after having bought tickets for the Metro and busses we arrived to a closed stadium

We were surprised to see the Olympic Statium and other structures were closed for about a year for renovations. So do not waste your time unless you just want to walk around the grounds.
