GFH in English

Gymnastikföreningen i Helsingfors is a gymnastics club with focus on keep-fit gymnastics in good company, fun gymnastics for children, and show dance and dance groups for all, from children to adults.

Our mission is to offer various forms of gymnastics and dance in Swedish in Helsinki. Our groups have classes at school gyms leased by the city of Helsinki.

Since the start in 1876, GFH has had groups that actively participate in gymnastics festivals. In 2019, we had both gymnasts and dancers participating in the 16th World Gymnaestrada held in Dornbirn, Austria. In 2020 and 2021, all events have been cancelled due to the Covid-19 pandemic. The next gymnastics festivals in which GFH gymnasts and dancers plan to participate will take place in 2022.

Any questions you may have can be mailed to We will answer as soon as possible, but please be not upset if you do not receive an immediate answer. Our club is administered by volunteers. Thus, it might take a couple of days before any of our board members has the possibility to answer your question.
