Shopping in Helsinki
Due to the international coronavirus (COVID-19) epidemic, public venues, such as museums, libraries, cafés, restaurants and hotels have been closed in Helsinki. Starting from June 1, these venues are opening again. Please note! All events for over 500 persons have been cancelled until July 31. For more information and recommendations, see the Finnish institute of health and welfare.
We recommend checking the opening hours and other information on the websites of operators or organisers responsible. There might be exceptions in services available. Service providers might also give instructions to guests on how to reduce the risk of contamination.
Shopping in Helsinki is enjoyable. Helsinki offers a vast array of unique souvenirs from folksy handicraft to functional Finnish design, and a variety of shopping environments: shopping centres and malls, department stores, markets as well as designer shops and small boutiques. Helsinki’s main shopping precincts and street are downtown – all within easy walking distance.
Some of the places have discounts with Helsinki Card.
