Lahti Fringe Festival welcomes all artists to Lahti

Aurinkoinen päivä Lahden satamassa. Kuvassa taustalla Sibeliustalo

Finlands first ever Fringe Festival proudly welcomes all artists from far and nearby to Lahti to enjoy and experience the atmosphere of Lahti Fringe Festival. Lahti is located in the just an hour away from Helsinki. Lahti is known for its sports events and wood and furniture industry.

Lahti offers many sites to explore for a foreigner. So between the Fringe Festival shows you might want to visit the ski jumping tower at the sports center and challenge yourself by wall climbing the highest jumping tower. Or maybe you are more into culture and would like to take a nice walk to Lahti harbor and to Sibelius Hall – concert hall that has been chosen to be the best concert hall in Europe. Or if you are an outdoor person that enjoys music you might make a stop at the water organ. If shopping is close to your heart or you are in a need of souvenirs to take home you find nice small shops at the heart of the city.

So as you can see Lahti is something else offering versatile sights and attractions – most of the sights are within walking distance. For more information about the sights and attractions please visit
