Herttoniemi (Swedish: Hertonäs) is a neighbourhood and a suburb of Helsinki, the Finnish capital. It is located about 7 km east of the city centre and can be easily reached by metro in 10 minutes. It has an older northern suburb and a newer coastal suburb with ferry connections to the city centre. There once was a large harbour in Herttoniemi, but in the 1990s, this industrial harbour area was demolished and converted to a tightly populated residential area and marina.
There are four districts in Herttoniemi:
- Länsi-Herttoniemi West Herttoniemi
- Roihuvuori which is former East Herttoniemi
- Herttoniemenranta Harbour of Herttoniemi
- Herttoniemi industrial area
Another famous owner of Herttoniemi manor was admiral Carl Olof Cronstedt, who had the existing building built and lived in the manor the last years of his life. A street in Herttoniemenranta called Amiraali Cronstedtin ranta is named after him.
