Espoo Top 50 Attractions

This page is available in:


Espoo's top 50 attractions revealed by our followers  

We asked – you answered. Earlier in spring 2022, we asked the followers of Visit Espoo channels for help to figure out Espoo’s best attractions; the result was an unbeatable list! We put together a TOP50 list based on the suggestions of the followers of Visit Espoo social media channels, in other words, the best Espoo experts and visitors to Espoo. The list provides options for day trip destinations or even after-work activities. The suggestions included both firm favourites as well as wonderful less-well-known gems. 

Espoo's top50 attractions   

You were amazing! We received many, many suggestions, and because we did not want to leave out any of them, we combined them a little to include them all on the list. Check the weather forecast and choose the best combination of attractions and head out on an expedition! 

Espoo is full of wonderful destinations, and naturally, this list does not include them all. You can keep suggesting your favourite places and hidden gems not found on the list – whether you wish to share with us a popular destination for the general public such as a kindly old tree stump in your local forest or a breath-taking view from a hideaway, we want to hear about it! If you wish to share your experiences on social media, tag  @visitespoo and use the hashtag  #EspooTop50, if you want to. 

Note: The list is not following alphabetical or favorability order.
