Kamppi Centre is a complex in the Kamppi district in the centre of Helsinki, designed by various architects, the main designer, however, being Juhani Pallasmaa. It is said to be Helsinki's new downtown commercial and residential centre. As a four-year construction project, it was the largest singular construction site in the history of Finland, involving the extensive and difficult redevelopment of the Kamppi district in downtown Helsinki.The Kamppi Centre combines the commercial need for streamlined, optimized shopping environment with the necessary supply of customers by maximum accessibility and mobility. One of the first of its kind in Europe, the centre consists of: Central bus terminal for local buses Long-distance traffic terminal Kamppi metro station A freight depot Internal parking area 6 floor shopping centre with a supermarket, shops, restaurants, night clubs and service points High-class offices and residential apartments The entire complex was opened in stages, with the new metro station entrance opened on 2 June 2005, the central bus terminal on 5 June, the long-distance bus terminal on 6 June and the shopping centre opened on 2 March 2006.The appearance of the building is a reflection of the main architect Juhani Pallasmaa's ongoing interest in Constructivist architecture and Structuralist architecture, as if the building functions as a machine.

  • A mall quite interesting with a bus terminal in your lower level. Have a good quantity and variety of shops and some good restaurants and cafes. It is well located in the city centre and near the train station of Helsinki.

  • Shopping Center is located in the same building as the city bus station. Therefore, there is always a lot of people. I choose to go somewhere else to shop, because I don't like crowds. In General, in the mall a lot of clothing and shoe stores. Also there can be a cheap meal.

  • The busy heart of the capital city. Always people here and lots of shops and services cater for all needs and budgets. Kamppi is also the hub of the central bus terminal. Long distance busses depart punctually and the local shop staff are helpful and speak English. There is even a local route underground to get to Kamppi from the Central railway station without going outside. Its a maze down there but fun exploring Helsinki's underground city, a rabbit warren of fun accessible by wheelchair and family friendly.
  • Would be nice to have a child play room. Improvement in child facilities needed. Otherwise a nice shopping center.
  • Love the underground luggage service and the nice information desk services! They speak fluent English and are always ready to help tourists. Large variety of different and also specialised shops inside!
  • It hosts many retail shops from clothing to electronic and banks. There are also few restaurants and several coffee shops to rest and or hang out with friends. Several buses to Espoo and other long distance buses leave and stop from there. However, many well known big stores are missing. It is a bit noisy and full of youngsters.
  • Busy shopping center in the heart of Helsinki. They offer a lot of seating for customers in the upper floors. Customer toilets, which are situated in the top floor, are free and very clean.

Where to stay in Helsinki

Set yourself up with easy access to many of Helsinki's most popular tourist sites by staying in the city's bustling and modern center. You'll find that the area is packed full of shops, restaurants, and bars, plus it's conveniently close to both the city's main train station and energetic waterfront. Though there's certainly a range of options when it comes to big-name hotel chains and upscale accommodation, prices are generally higher throughout most of the center, so consider staying at a hostel to cut down on costs. Hostels typically offer a solid location in or near the city center at a fraction of the cost of a big chain.
