Autumn in Helsinki
The last ray of summer’s warmth
As time is drawing closer to September, the turn of the seasons becomes vivid. Days are shorter and nights come sooner, while rains start to get in place. Yet, that does not mean you can no longer enjoy Helsinki and what the city has to offer. Follow Hotel Kämp’s recommendations below on how to embrace Finnish autumn to the fullest.
The “Ruska” season
“Ruska” is a beloved name that the locals coined for this in-between season. Ruska represents nature’s finest symphony of reds, yellows, and browns before white dominates the Finnish landscape. Leaves from birch, aspen, and mountain ash trees, turn into a romantic painting that soothes the eyes of the beholders, making autumn indeed the perfect time for a hot cup of coffee with a view. Near the center of Helsinki, Töölö Bay has everything that a fulfilling autumnal day trip would require, from the beautiful Winter Garden boasting hundreds of plants, to the wooden villas rich in history.
Indulge in arts and culture
From 5 - 15.09.2019, the popular Helsinki Design Week returns with a diversity of exhibitions and art events, showcasing rising talents in the Finnish design world. A month later, visitors will once again be enchanted by the traditional Carnival of Light at Linnanmäki Amusement Park. Hotel Kämp’s knowledgeable Concierge team will be more than glad to assist you throughout the planning process for these special occasions.
Season’s finest ingredients
Autumn also means mushroom- and berry season in Finland. With every man’s right in the country’s forests, nature-lovers can choose whatever to their hearts’ content, from yellow chanterelles and brown porcini to berries. At Brasserie Kämp, seasonally freshest ingredients are also served, sophisticatedly conveyed through well-balanced menus and top-class services. Visit the restaurant for a variety of autumn’s most exquisite flavors.
After a day breathing in the crisp air of autumn across Helsinki, tune down at Hotel Kämp and enjoy the beautiful foliage from the Esplanade park. A world of serenity full of possibilities awaits your exploration.
