We are located right next to Kirkkopuisto park and the Water Tower. In the tourist office we have all kinds of wonderful things to offer for Hanko fans: T-shirts, postcards, Hanko stamps, Hanko tea and our favourites “Hangon Keksi” (Hanko biscuit) tins. The newest temptation is a lovley Hanko towel in linen. The products can also be ordered from our webshop. You are most welcome to visit us!
If you happen to drop by when we are closed, you can take a brochure and a map from the Hanko post box outside the tourist office entrance.
Did you know that the tourist office is open all year? Don’t hesitate to contact us whenever you want, and we will be delighted to show you a different kind of Hanko; the magnificent light and high skies of spring, the long, velvety autumn and the almost European Christmas time.
Wishing you a wonderful holiday in Hanko,
