Fodor's Review

In an idyllic position at the top of a wooded slope is Hvitträsk, the studio home of architects Herman Gesellius, Armas Lindgren, and Eliel Saarinen. The property dates back to the turn of the 20th century, and is now a charming museum. The whimsical main house reveals the national art nouveau style, with its rustic detail and paintings by Akseli Gallen-Kallela; Saarinen lived here, and his grave is nearby. A café and restaurant are set up in one of the architects' houses. Hvitträsk can be reached from Helsinki by taking the L or U train to Luoma and walking 2.7 km (1.7 mi) or taking the E, L, S or U train to Kauklahti and then a taxi.
