Where is the writing retreat?
Furuborginkatu 3, 00980 Helsinki
The beautiful Hotel Rantapuisto in east Helsinki is our venue. This remarkable building was constructed in 1963 for use as a bank's training centre, with architectural inspirations drawn from Alvar Aalto and the Danish Louisiana Museum of Modern Art.
Now an independent and unique hotel, the spacious buildings are all clean lines of wood and glass; the rooms are filled with natural light and gorgeous views of the surrounding forest.
Being on the hotel grounds feels like you're in another world — but it's well connected to Helsinki city centre by metro and bus. Check the public transport routes and schedules.
If you're coming from further away — or want to really immerse yourself in the retreat — accommodation packages are available.
And if you felt like staying for the weekend, the hotel offers plenty of other activities, including sauna, sea kayaking, workshops and more.
Free parking is available onsite.
Come for the retreat, stay for the venue!
