Sea voyage by public transport
The ferries to Suomenlinna fortress are a natural part of the city traffic in Helsinki. In only about fifteen minutes, they will transport the passengers from the city centre to the peaceful fortress isles surrounded by the sea.
The Suomenlinna ferries operate all year round, during open waters as well as when the sea is frozen up. They serve the residents of Suomenlinna, people that work there and thousands of tourists interested in the fortress.
The ferries to Suomenlinna operate from Kauppatori every day of the year and from Katajanokka on weekdays. In Kauppatori, the departure dock can be found near the Keisarinnankivi memorial statue of a double-headed eagle. Katajanokka dock is located right at the end of the cape Katajanokka.
