Let the Music guide you!

The roots of Finnish culture go way back in time, where heroes and rune singers directed their people through ancient magical music. Written down in the national epic “Kalevala”, the ancient rune songs inspire Finnish musicians to this day, be it classical music, Tango, Rock or Folk. During our city walk, we forget everyday life for 3 hours and immerse ourselves in the inspiring world of music from Finland. You listen to favourite, well-known (and lesser known) music by Finnish composers, musicians and music groups and you learn about how music is connected to history, important people and the culture of Finland. While we explore the city on foot, the sights and districts come alive through magical, melancholic, tender, dynamic, rocky or simply great feel-good music.

A high-quality audio system with stereo headphones and receiver for each participant assures good listening quality.

Tunes tell stories beyond words…don’t miss them!

OPEN TOURS TIME & AVAILABILITY:  June, July and through August 2017 daily at 3 pm. DURATION:  3 hours.
