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.

A good mix og shops, but a bit "messy". Had some trouble finding my way here, but for the stores I found I liked it :)

Interesting concept to have everything in under one roof. Great arrangements of clothes all over the floors with easy access by all.

The shopping mall has a good variety of stores, restaurants and cafes. It's well organized after being renovated a few years ago. It's a good place for families a specially!

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

This is a wonderful shopping center! It closes by 6pm so you do need to plan your shopping accordingly. There are a variety of shops. Everything from Marimekko fashion and fabrics to a hardware store. I purchase cosmetics from Kicks! In a central location with lots of public transportation. There is even a food court inside. Happy shopping! 😀

Plenty of shops and dining areas. I don't find it necessary to shop at these big stores when travelling thru Europe - if you must then this has plenty of fashion stores.
