A 15-minute post-break­fast stroll will take you to the cap­i­tal’s in­ter­na­tion­ally acclaimed De­sign Museum, which is housed in a his­toric neo-gothic build­ing dat­ing from 1894. The dis­plays at the 143-year-old in­sti­tu­tion trace Finnish de­sign from 1870 to the present day, high­light­ing its time­less­ness and con­tem­po­rary ap­peal. Just a stone’s throw away is the com­ple­men­tary Museum of Finnish Ar­chi­tec­ture, whose large col­lec­tion of draw­ings and pho­to­graphs fo­cuses on the coun­try’s built en­vi­ron­ment post-1900.

All that wan­der­ing and in­tel­lec­tual in­spi­ra­tion will have gen­er­ated a hunger for some­thing more phys­i­cally sat­is­fy­ing. For­tu­nately, the best of Nordic cui­sine is nearby. Spis of­fers four- and six-course tast­ing menus that con­jure mod­ern, de­con­structed dishes from the best of in­gre­di­ents. While veg­eta­bles take cen­tre stage, those fond of meat and seafood will also be sat­is­fied. There are only 18 seats, so be sure to make a reser­va­tion.
