I had so much expectation before I came here but I have to say I am a bit disappointed. The so called outlet is very small scale. The iittala shop sells most stuff like the one in town and some factory seconds. Even the factory seconds are not that cheap. And not much stuff there to be honest. There are... More

This review is about the entire Arabia center and complex that includes not just the shopping center, cafes, restaurants but also the outdoor residential areas with modern, interesting sculptures spread all around, and the relaxing waterfront with a walking path. The entire place is a wonderful getaway from the tourists in central Helsinki. It is a 20 min tram ride... More

Nice factory shop in an arcade that has a good range of other Finnish homewards stuff. There's some seriously lovely stuff here but don't come expecting too many as most of it is very pricey. You've also got the problem of getting such weighty goods home. You might do as we did and treat it as a fun outing to... More

The factory shop is not too huge and can not compare with the factory outlets in other countries. But, you can buy lots of local products here and it's good.

Arabia factory store is tram ride away from the city centre. It may have interesting stuff if you are into porcelain and glass. It has some factory seconds at discounted prices but the rest of the stuff is the same you can find in the city centre store. Arabia does not, in fact, manufacture anything in Finland anymore. It comes... More

This rating is for the Street Festival that happens once a year in May (I found out about this from a food tour that I took and then followed up for more info from the 'visit Helsinki' website). This is a lively local event, with many community groups offering very reasonably priced street food (the cinnamon buns from a school... More

We came for the plates and glasses and stayed for the tableware, trays etc. Expect to spend some time if you are interested in Scandinavian design. There are a few shops which invite to brows and explore all sorts of objects. The cafe isn't bad. Had some coffee and rememberable cake there.

The Arabia factory store is totally a must-see for enthusiasts of classic Finnish design. The complex includes a restaurant, a museum, a book shop (and much more) and... the Iittala outlet. They have a huge range of products (new and well-known ones), both first- and second-class quality (although I had difficulties to find the difference). The prices are comparably cheap... More
