Malminkartanonhuippu (English: Malminkartano Hill, Swedish: Malmgårdstoppen) is an artificial hill located near to Myyrmäki in the district of Malminkartano in Helsinki, Finland. With a height of about 90 meters above sea level, it is the highest point in the city of Helsinki. The view from the top gives a 360° panorama in all directions for those you have climbed the 426 steps.
One face of the hill includes a giant arrow-shaped artwork pointing upwards and several hundred metres in length.
Nicknames include Jätemäki ("dump hill") and Jättäri ("leftovers"). Both of these slang terms derive from the site's past use as a municipal landfill site, between the years of 1976–1996.
