Attraction > Tamminiemi


Tamminiemi has been connected to Finnish stately and administrative life for almost half a century.

• The study and the special phone in the office
• The guided tours take you to the famous sauna of the president.
• Upstairs presents the private life of president Kekkonen.

Some of the biggest decisions in the history of Finland were made in Tamminiemi. The official residence of Presidents Risto Ryti, C.G.E. Mannerheim and Urho Kekkonen offers visitors a glimpse behind the curtains of power and politics.

Tamminiemi Villa is located in Meilahti adjacent to Seurasaari museum island on a beautiful park estate which used to be President Urho Kekkonen's official residence during his period in office between 1956 and 1981. In those days it was known as the centre of Finland's political and governmental life. Tamminiemi is furnished the way it was in Kekkonen's time in the 1970's.
