When spring is at its most beautiful, Raseborg's parks, green areas and forests are filled with flowers and birdsong. The city is also filled with events for everyone.
The magical time of flowering
In the spring, the city’s leafy parks, lush streets and lively playgrounds come to life again. Enjoy extended days, a warming sun and a happy mood among residents and visitors. Whether you want to enjoy the tranquility of nature or raise your heart rate on one of the city’s all hiking trails, there is something for everyone.
A sure sign of spring in Raseborg, is when the white anemones start to bloom, and transforms Ramsholmen’s forest and ground into a green-white sea of flowers. At the turn of the month April-May, the forest is filled with a beautiful scenery that few can resist. For the early-morning hiker, the park area’s birds offer the most versatile and richest bird song.
The beautiful ironworks environment in Billnäs village will also be transformed into a beautiful pink sea of flowers in May, when 300 planted ornamental cherry trees will bloom. The robust mix of historic ironworks environment and beautifully blooming pink cherry blossoms is an experience you will not forget.
In the castle park adjacent to the Svartå Manor, you can enjoy spring along winding paths, gazebos, romantic bridges and statues. When the water lilies are blooming, a walk along the water lily pad and the unusual water lilies is a beautiful addition you must not miss. The castle park is one of the largest private historical parks in Finland, located next to Finland’s first ironworks.
Celebrate the arrival of spring with a visit to the flower valley Blomdalen on Gullö. Along the 500 m long walking path, almost 35,000 daffodils of about 20 different varieties bloom. We planted the first bulbs in the autumn of 2007 and have gradually expanded. Gullö manor café is open during flowering time. The most intense flowering is usually in mid-May.
Markets and local food
Local food and organic products are commonplace in Raseborg and the city’s restaurateurs have understood the importance of local ingredients, which are used in many of the city’s restaurant kitchens. Treat yourself to delicacies in the city’s restaurants and cafés or buy some with you home.
Most of the locally produced food in Raseborg can be bought in the city’s grocery stores, markets or via the producers’ farm shops.
Markets are also arranged three days a week, all year round. In both Ekenäs and Karis you can buy directly from the producer on Wednesdays and Saturdays, and in Pojo on Fridays.
