Interesting concept to have everything in under one roof. Great arrangements of clothes all over the floors with easy access by all.

The shopping mall has a good variety of stores, restaurants and cafes. It's well organized after being renovated a few years ago. It's a good place for families a specially!

Huge shopping center in the middle of Helsinki. If you can't find it here, it probably doesn't exist. Definitely worth the visit.

Spent a week in Helsinki and was a regular here. Forum is very Central and much nicer than the huge Kampii shopping Centre just behind it. Across the road is Stockmann. Location is great. It takes up a whole block. There are a few entrances - just look for the flags saying Forum above the doors. Bought headphones, a Finlayson... More

This is a wonderful shopping center! It closes by 6pm so you do need to plan your shopping accordingly. There are a variety of shops. Everything from Marimekko fashion and fabrics to a hardware store. I purchase cosmetics from Kicks! In a central location with lots of public transportation. There is even a food court inside. Happy shopping! 😀

Not the biggest or best shopping mall in Helsinki but decent with clothing stores, restaurants and electronics. Good location.

Plenty of shops and dining areas. I don't find it necessary to shop at these big stores when travelling thru Europe - if you must then this has plenty of fashion stores.

This was really disappointing bar Mango and H&M it's full of low end clothes stores suitable for teenagers. Did spot an Irish bar on the top floor with a roof garden.

Probably useful if you are local - if you have limited time as a tourist then don't bother. I'd probably only walk through here if I was on my way to the Chapel of Silence (a must do). Lighting in this complex is horrible if you have a headache. Public toilets on the ground floor not the best (in fact... More
