Open House Helsinki returns this year on May, 5–7, 2023.
Themed “re-use,” the 2023 edition of Open House Helsinki features a range of stories about recycling, activism, the risk of demolition, and preserving cultural heritage. Festival highlights include Cable Factory, one of the largest cultural centres in Finland; Maria 01, the leading Nordic startup campus located in the former home of the city’s first public hospital; the Art Nouveau home of businessman and arts patron Amos Andersons; and the harbour-front, Lars Sonck-designed magazine warehouse. The programme also includes a self-guided QR-coded tour for exploring locations of former cinemas.
Open House Helsinki allows visitors into places which normally are not available to the public. Open House Helsinki organizes guided walks in fascinating interior spaces, interesting parts of the city as well as old and new architectural points of interest. The walks are guided by designers and specialists.
The tours and walks are free of cost. For safety reasons some of the destinations have restricted number of participants and enrollment is required. If the language of the tour is not mentioned, it will be Finnish.
