Mariehamn

Mariehamn is a large small town with its 11.000 inhabitants. The town centre has much to offer in a small space; you are always near shopping, restaurants, culture and experiences.

Mariehamn is situated on a narrow peninsula in between two sea bays and the harbours Västerhamn and Österhamn. You arrive to the western harbour by means of one of the great passenger ferries from Stockholm, Kapellskär, Helsinki, Turku or Tallinn. This is also the location of the guest harbour ÅSS if you arrive by your own boat. You may also choose the eastern harbour’s marina, MSF.

For a town the size of Mariehamn, the service and supply of restaurants, hotels, bars, museums and shops, is great. With its 1.5 million tourists each year, the town feels more spacious and larger than many other towns of the same size.

Mariehamn is also called “the town of the thousand Linden trees”, refering to the Linden trees which line an avenue across town.
