Why visit Fiskars Village

Fiskars is one of the villages in Finland that is full of joy and inspiration. Established in 1649, it is a pioneer of industrial development in Scandinavia. The region has attracted craftspeople and artistic-minded individuals for centuries, and today Fiskars Village is known as the center of Finnish art and design.
Only about an hour away from Helsinki and Turku, Fiskars Village is so close, yet another world. Fiskars Village is the best destination for green holidays: the idyllic artisan atmosphere is present everywhere, from the historical architecture and local flavors of the restaurants to the nature trails, children’s playgrounds, and the unique art and craft products of the small boutiques.

Fiskars Village is a home for a large variety of unforgettable events – such as concerts, the summer theater, the famous food events or design workshops – that enchant the visitors and vitalize the village scenery all year round.


The attraction of Fiskars Village is based mostly upon its valuable nature and cultural heritage that led us, together with local stakeholders, to identify six principles for sustainable operations: to promote protection of heritage, culture and nature, to minimize harmful impact on the environment, to strengthen local aspects, to promote health and wellbeing, to support local economic growth and offer job opportunities to locals and to communicate the values of Fiskars Village in a congruent and uniform manner among local entrepreneurs and associations.
