Attractions and places to visit
You know what they say – practice makes perfect!
And Hämeenlinna has had plenty of practice over the centuries to make itself a real treasure, both for adventurers and for those who simply want to relax and enjoy everything the region has to offer. This includes its impressive castles, charming attractions and fascinating museums, in addition to its birdsong, the crunch of white snow under your step and unforgettably beautiful landscapes: for example, Aulanko’s forest parkland, the Evo hiking area and National City Park.
Hämeenlinna’s well-known, popular places to visit should also be on your own list: the mediaeval castle, comprehensive Verkatehdas Arts & Congress Centre, and easy-going Aulanko Spa. If you’re a friend of cultural history, the area’s splendid churches, museums and galleries are well-worth going to see.
Terola Nursery is for everyone with a green thumb. Its garden park features, among other things, Europe’s most extensive collection of meadowsweet shrubs.
