Kirkkonummi (Swedish:Kyrkslätt) is in Uusimaa, about 30km west of Helsinki.

Understand[edit]

Get in[edit]

Kirkkonummi is part of the HSL regional public transport cooperation. See Helsinki#Get around for information about HSL fares and tickets. For coaches, see Matkahuolto. The centre is 500 m from national road 51 (Länsiväylä, Västerleden).

By train[edit]

There are frequent regional trains from Helsinki and Espoo.

Few trains from Turku to Helsinki stop in Kirkkonummi. Usually you have to transfer to a regional train in Leppävaara, Espoo, sometimes in Karis, to a regional train or a minibus. In both cases the transfer should be included on the ticket.

By bus[edit]

Also buses run regularly from Helsinki. Coaches along road 51, mostly between Helsinki and Karis (often continuing farther), stop at "Kirkkonummenportti" (Kyrkslättporten), i.e. the crossroads.

By car[edit]

Kirkkonummi is a 20–30 minute drive from central Helsinki along highway 51, depending on the traffic.

Get around[edit]

See Helsinki#Get_around for information about fares and tickets

The town is sufficiently small to get around in by foot, however for sights further away, the most practical mode of transportation is your own car. HSL operates local bus routes.
