Helsinki overnight layover: is it worth it?

Jump to last reply

Thinking about buying a ticket (cheaper than others) from BRU to JFK with a 15h 25m stopover. It gets in at 10:45p on Thursday in July and leaves at 2:10p the next day (Friday). Given the cost of spending a night somewhere, it would cost about the same to do a direct flight home. I'm really only interested in the stopover if there is realistically something(s) I can see/visit in Helsinki.

Anyone have any idea if it would make sense to explore for a few hours on Friday morning? Any advice on where to stay/how to get in and out of town (taxi is probably too expensive for me)/how long to stay before heading back to the airport? I don't know how much time I need to give myself to get back to the airport. I'd be ready to be out and about between 7 and 8am if I did do the stopover. I've never been to Helsinki - I know I wouldn't have long, but I also don't have plans to be back in Finland in the anywhere-near-future.
