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.

  • This mall is in the same building as the bus station. We liked all the shops here, and the dining places was also good, so nothing to say there! But the mall inn it self.. There were few to none sitti...  read more »
  • It's actually a small shoping, but has two markets that can help you if you are staying nearby, namely in the areas of central station. This weekend we passed there, had assembled outside several sports courts with bleachers and everything. It looked like a Championship. Was too full and lively. The bus station is underground

  • This place is for coolest and most branded outlets in the city. Also this is the bus station for the western Helsinki Bay and long distance busses. Buy everything from here if u have something in ur mind. Even K-Supermarket and Lidl are here with metro and walk tunnel to the central railway station.
  • When visiting Helsinki, this is a great spot to use as your "center" in exploring the city. It has free WiFi and some fun restaurants (Thai, Lobster hot dogs, etc). Also a great place to catch public transportation from with the access to the trains right within the building. Of course, you can also go shopping here with a TON of stores in this mall. It's a little expensive and perhaps not the "authentic" Helsinki experience, but definitely a good central meeting area.
  • Regular "scandinavian" type mall, with all the same stores you can find in any other mall in Nordic countries. Has also a nice and large K-Market which is open more or less every day. Downstairs has the bus terminal for Espoo busses and one level further down there is a terminal for long range busses.
  • A truly relevant place for locals and tourists alike. Located in the centre of Helsinki, Kamppi provides a way to easily travel to close-by cities like Espoo whilst including a well-stocked shopping mall.
  • Kamppi is a great mixed-use shopping centre including plenty of stores and a large transportation hub connecting people all around the city and wider region. Some of the stores on the upper levels are a little isolated and difficult to new-comers to discover.
