The walking tour takes place in urban public space and lasts about 2 hours. The total length of the route is about 3 kilometers. During the tour, there is a short flight of stairs to enter one building (Tiedekulma), and a fairly gentle incline on Fabianinkatu. Along the route there are non-beveled curbs and in some places uneven terrain with height differences. On the walking tours, the progression is calm and includes several stops. There are no easily accessible seats or benches along the route. You can bring your own camping chair. The guide uses a mic and a carriable speaker on the tour. The nearest accessible public and gender neutral toilet is located at the Museum of Finnish Architecture (Kasarmikatu 23, 00130 Helsinki).
