Somewhere in the eastern part of Helsinki there is a very spooky forest.

Haunted Forest

Hidden within the forest are at least half a dozen old abandoned houses. Some of them have burned down, some are just locked up and others fall apart along the years.
Inside the houses you can find remains of lifes once lived in them – dusty clothes, toys, magazines…

Haunted Forest

I haven´t so far found out why and when this forest has been abandoned.

I´m not giving an exact location since it would be a shame to crowd this place. Contact me if you don´t manage to find it by yourself and I can give you some hints.

Update from a comment by Ervasti from 13.08.2008:
“Those wooden buildings used to belong to former German nobles, but after 2nd WW those were captured by Soviet Union due the Paris Peace Treat 1947 where all German property was given to Soviet Union.. during decades property was sold/given/etc. and it belongs to City of Helsinki. That pond of water has a underwater well which is refreshing it and there was a pier for swimmers.”

  13. Hi..
    I’m really interested in old buildings and forests. I just moved to Helsinki and I miss the old creepy forests we had around at home. If you would be so kind and tell me how to get to this haunted forest of yours, I would really appreciate it.. Thanks!
    Greetings, Sol.

  15. Hi! I would very much like to find this forest, if it still exists like in your photos. Could you help me find it?

    Great site by the way!

  16. Those wooden buildings used to belong to former German nobles, but after 2nd WW those were captured by Soviet Union due the Paris Peace Treat 1947 where all German property was given to Soviet Union.. during decades property was sold/given/etc. and it belongs to City of Helsinki.

    That pond of water has a underwater well which is refreshing it and there was a pier for swimmers.

    I hope this peaceful place will be left remaining without tourists.. until it is built up in the near future..

  17. Tommi:
