Guided Half-Day School Visits in Helsinki with Lunch

Open School Visit is the most practical solution for individuals and small groups. It includes a half-day visit in the Helsinki metropolitan area with the possibility to observe classes and talk with Finnish teachers. The visit also includes the Finnish school lunch – famous for being offered to every student for free.

The concept of these school visits is as the name indicates, open for everyone. You can be an educational professional or a student, a business person or a tourist. The only requirement is that you are interested in Finnish education and eager to see how learning takes place in a normal classroom setting.

If the Open School visits don't suit your schedule, get in touch about Private or Customized School Visits.
