A walk with Helene in the old town of Ekenäs/Tammisaari

We will see locations where the famous Finnish artist Helene Schjerfbeck painted when staying in Ekenäs. We pass by houses where she or her models lived. At the same time the town history from 1546 when it was founded to the 1940’s is presented. We start the story at the Café Schjerfbeck by the town square, Smedsgatan 10. If the weather is not suitable for a long walk we listen to part of the story inside and take a shorter walk.
