Lahti Things to Do

  • Culture by the lake

    Sibelius Hall (Sibeliustalo in Finnish) is a big culture centre next to the lakeshore a couple kilometers from Lahti downtown. The venue is known for concerts and other cultural events, but it is worth of a visit even an event.The building is made of wood, and being several storeys high, it is an architectural feat seldomly seen in Finland -- we...

  • The harbor area

    A beautiful place to just walk around and to enjoy the atmosphere. Fish market once a month during the summer. The old fashioned Finnish style cafe is my favorite cafe ever. Also chek out the Sibelius Hall, the biggest woden concert hall in the world! In the park near by, you can find the biggest musical fountain in Scandinavia.

    Rosso is one of the biggest restaurant chains in Finland, operated by the co-operative S group. The restaurants are usually found next to Sokos Hotels or Sokos department stores. Lahti is no exception, as the local Sokos Hotel is next to Rosso and Sokos store is across the street.The food in Rosso is semi-Italian; basic Italian portions have been...

  • Don't Forget Insurance

    Transportation to Lahti and around Lahti

    by FinElina Written Nov 10, 2006

    The easiest way to get to Lahti is by train or bus (if you don't have your own car). Buses from Helsinki depart every half hours and it takes only 1½ hours to reach Lahti. Train from Helsinki is nowadays even a bit faster.
    The bus and train systems are very good in Finland so Lahti is easily reached from all over the country.

    Buses in the city of Lahti operate not so often but do operate anyway. The best way to go from one place to another in Lahti is by your own car, bicycle or by walking.

  • Finnish design

    Pentik is one of the less known Finnish design houses. Their products are not shown in Wallpaper, but they are still part of Finnish heritage. Maybe the reason for exclusion is the rustic focus. Most of their items looks good on Finnish summer cottages.They have a largish store on the basement level in shopping center Trio in downtown Lahti that...

    Trio is a shopping mall located on Aleksanterinkatu in Lahti downtown. The shops are spread into four (albeit the name implies three) separate buildings that are joined together on the basement level and with tubes on the second floor.The shops are mostly part of middle level chains, so no extra fancy items are to be found here.

    Winterday in Lahti

    by Eleonoora Written Mar 11, 2006

    Favorite thing: This morning I woke up early and I went for a long walk.
    It was cold, about -20 degrees, the trees- also in the town are a lot of them - were frosted and the sun was shining. Everything was glimmering like diamonds. IT WAS SO BEAUTIFUL.

    So never miss to go for a walk on a very cold sunny day. But don't forget warm clothes.
