    Things to do in Helsinki in November 

    Winter Garden 

    When most people think of gardens, they think of spring. Helsinki, on the other hand, embraces its cold weather with the beautiful Winter Garden. A recreational meeting place for more than a century, the garden is an oasis of exotic plants and beautiful fish. Visitors can be transported around the world and through the seasons with plants like island palms, cactus, and dozens of flowers.

    Loyyl

     A visit to Helsinki isn't complete without a Scandinavian sauna experience like the one at Löyly. In a country with an estimated 2 million saunas, guests will have hard time choosing just one. Löyly offers a complete experience in one destination, with a smoke sauna, a wood-burning sauna, and a spot to enter the frigid Baltic Sea. There's also a bar and restaurant for guests so no one has to leave hungry.

    Kamppi Chapel of Silence

Welcoming everyone, regardless of religion, the building was designed in 2012 with a beautiful curved shape. The chapel is free of charge and may be the perfect moment of peace in a busy day of touring.
