This shopping complex in central Helsinki is a great destination for retail therapy. There are many shops and restaurants to suit every taste. There are even a couple of bars and night clubs. It is only a short distance from the central railway station and there is a tram stop out front.

Helsinki's oldest shopping center has so many entrances it is easy to find approaching from any direction. There are long underground corridors connecting it with Main Railway Station and Main Bus Station at Kamppi Shopping center, which are popular in winter weather. The recent renovation added space both to the basement with large Gigantti home appliancies store and on the... More

The Moomin Shop was the real reason we came to the Forum shopping centre. Lots of other clothing shops here. It was nice and warm on a cold day.

Huge shopping center in the middle of Helsinki. If you can't find it here, it probably doesn't exist. Definitely worth the visit.

Spent a week in Helsinki and was a regular here. Forum is very Central and much nicer than the huge Kampii shopping Centre just behind it. Across the road is Stockmann. Location is great. It takes up a whole block. There are a few entrances - just look for the flags saying Forum above the doors. Bought headphones, a Finlayson... More
