Get to know about Turku's shipyard industry and see where the world's largest cruise liners are built.

The tour starts from the tour bus stop at Aurakatu 2. You can purchase your tickets in advance on Visit Turku Shop Online or from Turku Tourist Information, +358 2 2627444. The tour ends at the tour bus stop, but, if desired, you can also jump off at Forum Marinum to check out its maritime history exhibitions.

Starting out at Aurakatu, the tour will then take you to the Forum Marinum Maritime Centre, where you can learn about the past and present of shipbuilding in Turku with scale models and video presentations. We then continue with a bus tour of the Meyer Turku shipyard. On the way there, the guide will talk about the operations and history of the Meyer Turku shipyard.

Guests will stay on the bus during the shipyard tour – visitors are denied access to vessels under construction due to safety reasons and construction work on the new gantry crane behind the construction basin prevents unauthorised personnel from getting off the bus.
