Hernesaari welcomed its first cruise ships a bit over a week ago and now the new season is starting to wake up the area once again. What has changed is the harbor area. Now the shops are even closer to the cruiseships and there is also a nice cafeteria in the area. Since Hernesaari is experiencing big changes during the next coming years, as the area is turning into a residential neighborhood, the plans for its temporary use are changing each year. This makes it a great place for testing and piloting services and an interesting environment for events and festivals. What is new this summer is the boat connection to the city center. Its a nice 30min ride to the market square or the other way around.
Our Walk and Feel pilot last summer assisted passengers to find their way to the Helsinki City center by feet. This summer, the same digital path with the signposts will be offered to the visitors by the Helsinki Tourist Office.
