Events data in Helsinki
In Helsinki, we offer three APIs which provide events data of Helsinki capital region collected from various sources and provided as open data.
Linked events API
The Linked events API (http://api.hel.fi/linkedevents) provides categorized data on events and places for the Helsinki capital region. The API contains data from the Helsinki City Tourist & Convention Bureau, the City of Helsinki Cultural Office and the Helmet metropolitan area public libraries. The data will be updated every hour.
The data from Helsinki City Tourist & Convention Bureau contains data on events and POIs. The data from City of Helsinki Cultural Office contains data on cultural activities provided by itself and in cooperation with other operators. The data from Helmet metropolitan area public libraries contains a variety of events in local libraries.
The location information in the Linked events API is linked to the City of Helsinki registry of service units which contains e.g. information about accessibility.
In the API, you can search data by date or location as well as city neighborhoods.
The data is provided in JSON-LD format.
Languages: Fin, En, Swe
Issues about the API can be discussed in Linked Events API discussion forum.
CitySDK Tourism API
The CitySDK Tourism API offers tourism related data like events and POIs in an harmonized manner in several European cities, i.e. Lisbon, Amsterdam, Rome and Lamia (see http://tourism.citysdk.eu/).
The Helsinki endpoint of the CitySDK Tourism API (http://api.tourism.helsinki.citysdk.eu/CitySDK/resources) offers the same data as the Linked events API. The data will be updated once a day.
