Just a shopping mall

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 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.

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

Located right in the centre of the city, its well accessible through all forms of public transport. It houses virtually every major clothing store. There are many restaurants catering to all major cuisines too. the 3 floor has many shops dedicated to just children, so if having a family dont forget about it

Honestly, there is nothing special about this shopping center. It's a shopping center! But it was a rainy day in Helsinki when we were there, so we killed a few hours, walking around in there. Lots of stores, and some really nice ones too. Definitely nothing you need to go out of your way to experience, but if the weather... More

Large shopping center with a mix of different types of shops. Layout is a bit confusing. Good selection of restaurants.
