Details

As the 75th World Science Fiction Convention (aka Worldcon 75) rolls around again, it gives me another opportunity to arrange a ghost walk of its host city, Helsinki. Yes, that's in Finland. Ghost walks are one of my favorite things to do when I'm traveling and it's always a lot more fun to do them with like-minded companions. To make it even more attractive to the many members who don't speak Finnish, the tour operator has an English-speaking tour available.

Although this has been timed for the convenience of Worldcon 75 members, all BAGH members are welcome to participate. If anyone just happens to have coinciding travel plans to Helsinki, please join us.

In addition to ghost stories, guests on these tours learn a lot about the history of the locale, particularly some of its macabre past. It even starts at a hotel that is a converted prison.

We'll be meeting at:

Hotel Katajanokka (Best Western Premier Hotel Katajanokka)
Merikasarminkatu 1A
Helsinki

For those who rsvp in advance, the fee is $13.00 U.S. The price "at-the-door" will be €15.00, cash only. Tour lasts approximately 90–120 minutes.

BTW, for anyone interested in the reason why so many science fiction fans are converging on Helsinki August 9–13, you'll find more details on Worldcon 75 at the following URL:

Looking forward to seeing everyone there.
