Rautatientori is, in fact, a part of the whole city train station complex, along with Helsinki Central Railway Station.

The vast square is surrounded by prominent historic buildings, including beautiful Ateneum, Fennia, National Theater of Finland, and many others. The Clock Tower is a part of the train station building, and you can see it from a distance quite well. The square is always full of tourists, plus there are thousands of passengers going to the train station and coming out of it. There are a lot of regional and tourist buses parked at their terminals , i.e. at the perimeter of Rautatientori, as well as tram stops that are so convenient for tourists at this busy, central part of the city.

Would I visit this site again, if I am in Helsinki? Definitely!

This is just a large gathering space which currently has a My Helsinki sign displayed but nothing else. From what i can gather is in the winter it may have a skating rink but currently is empty except for the sign. If you use the train station you really can’t miss this square but if not I wouldn’t necessarily seek it out.

As the main transportation hub the railway station and its environ is a busy place. The old square next to the railway station known as Rautatien tori (Railway square) often houses events and happenings turning the place into a fun and a lively spot to visit. On one side of the square, separated by a narrow street, you have several pubs and restaurants that are especially lively during the summer.

During winter and early spring months the square houses a very nice ice skating ring with a cosy café. You can hire skates for adults and kids, and also get yourself skating instruction if you’re still a beginner on skates. The skating ring also often has events. I warmly recommend it!

The railway square is surrounded by interesting architecture: the Ateneum (The Finnish National Gallery), the Finnish National theater and the main railway station are all architecturally and historically significant buildings.

Large Square which in wintertime has a ice skating ring.
Part of the central station Helsinki. It is also a secondary bus station.
During summer a Pub Tram leaves from the Square/ Mikonkatu named "Spårakoff" it leaves every hour.

this square holds various happenings during summer and an ice skating ring during the winter, right in the middle of the city center. besides, there are nice restaurants and bars with terrace surrounding the square. so definitely a place must visit.

The Central Train Station is the major station for long distance trains in Helsinki and handles 400,000 people each day. It was opened in 1919 and replaced and older station. It is quite impressive but it still is a train station.

The Rail Terminal Square remains the "heart" of Helsinki although it is now more bus terminal than anything. But, as a hub it is very functional and as a public square it remains attractive, accessible, and convenient.
