Kamppi Shopping Centre, Helsinki

(3.9/5 based on 170+ reviews on the web)
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 (underground) Kamppi metro station (underground) A freight depot (underground) Internal parking area (underground) 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.

  • The top-floor restaurant area is the comfort of the renewed. There are several food places worth trying and the general atmosphere of the floor is already close to the big world. I recommend to visit and try!

  • Great shops and nice restaurants. The grocery market is always open and has good selection of everything. The toilets are mostly awful and the elevator is always full. I have a small baby and we move with a buggy so the waiting for the elevator takes most of time. Also the family room could use some renovation.
  • The place through whoch many transportation lines intersect. Tenda to be kind of crowded at most times with people going from one place to the other. Has many shops and eateries as well. Not a place for spending time.
  • Probably the largest shopping center in the center of Helsinki. Kamppi is clean and the shops are all fairly classy. Many of the buses going to nearby Espoo and also the long distance buses leave from the terminals under the shopping center. There are even a few popular clubs on the top floors!
  • Shopping centre that pretty much has all the things you'd expect from restaurants to clothes to some grocery stores and specialist board games store. Located in a nice central location and has a metro stop and a bus terminal.
  • Shopping mall... enough said. One small caveat is a bit messy positioning/crowded due to being merged with central bus stop.
