About the tour

The best place to see street art in Helsinki is the district of East Pasila, a concrete neighbourhood in Helsinki just 5 minutes by train from the main railway station. It gained its reputation as a graffiti and street art area already 30 years ago, and now it is enjoying a revival after a long period of “zero tolerance” — a policy that forbade any street art activity in Helsinki. During the last few years a number of artists from Finland and abroad have turned this part of Helsinki into an extensive street art gallery.

Now you have the possibility to come and enjoy the art on our street art tours. During the 2 hour tour you’ll see a lot of street art varying from graffiti to stencils, big murals and ceramic art. We’ll tell the stories behind the works, explain how they were made and what kind of techniques are used in street art. You’ll also hear more about the area, history of street art and graffiti as well as other interesting details about Helsinki no other tour guides will tell you.


Depending on the weather, take with you a water bottle, an umbrella or warm clothes. You don’t have to register beforehand, just show up by 11AM at the main door of Pasila library (Kellosilta 9). The tour ends at Pasila Urban Art Center (Opastinsilta 6), where you can see the changing exhibition too.

The tours are operated on a pay-what-you-like fee (recommended donation at least 10 €). The money goes to running costs of Pasila Urban Art Center and creating new street art in the area.

We organize public street art tours every last Saturday of the month from March to October.
30.3. | 27.4. | 25.5. | 29.6. | 27.7. | 31.8. | 28.9. | 26.10.

Public tours are held in English (unless otherwise stated), but we do private tours upon request also in Finnish, German and Russian.

Itä-Pasila is not wheelchair accessible due to it being built on two levels. There are several staircases in the area. Some detours are possible in order to make the tour more accessible and people with physical disabilities can join the tour partly. If you have further questions about accessibility, please contact
