The Tower is very characteristic and identifies the Helsinki Olympic Stadium among its peers around the world. It is also one of the best known constructions and sites in Helsinki and Finland. The 80 years of the Tower’s history are made of many stories and celebrations.


At 72 metres from the ground, the Tower of the Olympic stadium is one of the best place to admire Helsinki from high above. The Tower is open on weekdays until 21:00. The opportunity to see the underlying city in evening lights has been a great attraction throughout the years. 

Open views to the city

The Tower of the Stadium is an icon in its own right. It has been a venue for falling in love – according to the wartime legend, the spark flared in the Tower between a “Lotta”, member of the Finnish women's auxiliary services and an air defence serviceman – for popping the question and even for celebrating the wedding. No wonder, since the Tower offers the best view to admire Helsinki. Especially the light-spotted cityscape over the Helsinki in the dusk is very impressive. The Tower offers the excitement of the all-around views over Helsinki.
