Well stuffed shopping center

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

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
