  • Helsinki central railway station is quite easily accessible, located in city center. It is very easy to find tickets for safe and fast transportation to many other locations, including airport.

  • Always busy , so much on offer in the station premises , from coffee, snacks , clothing , souvenirs. The list goes on the Hub for all rail travel which is excellent in Finland.
  • Lockers are for 4€ and bigger I think for 6€ - coins only! But behind lockers there is a machine for change your bank notes to coins. The main building itself looks amazing.
  • Quite well maintained. Clean. But only thing I didn't like is, we didn't find any bench to sit inside the station. Lots of shops and cafes.
  • ❤🇫🇮❤Beautiful ❤🇫🇮❤
  • The station is nice and various shops. Currency exchange. Ticket vending machines with card payment (some also coins but no banknotes). Long distance trains are also easily accessible. But short distance trains (including airport train) are first time difficult to find - no proper sign where to go, confusing letters, not clear which platform you need to take! (Look closer at the display - the platform is shown after departure time). For example airport train P was near platform 16 or 18. Especially airport should be clearly marked with signs at the station.
