Vuosaari Landfill Hill – Lapland or Himalaya?
The hill overlooking Vuosaari has become one of the most curious recreational areas in Helsinki. Over the years, thanks to the subtle landscaping created by people and machinery, the hill has become a place where locals can climb up and pretend they are in Lapland. The peak offers splendid views over Helsinki and the brand new Vuosaari Harbour. The highest point is 60 metres and the other brows 45 metres above sea level. Birdwatchers refer to the hill as the Himalayas and come here to watch the migrating birds.
