Finlandia Hall is a masterpiece by the renowned Finnish architect, Alvar Aalto, and worth a visit in its own right. Its combination of an all-embracing aesthetic vision, distinctive atmosphere, and functionality is unique. Our location in a park by the sea in the centre of Helsinki provides the final touch to a building that has no equal, either in Finland or anywhere else.
