Shopping Mall
“On the eight floor of the Kamppi shopping mall you will find a floor full of local restaurants/cafés in different price ranges. It was recently opened, modern and trendy feeling. It gets very crowded there during Finnish lunch hours (11:30-13:00) since many Finns like going there for lunch. Approximately 10 restaurant/cafées in total, a lot to choose between.”

Art Museum
“An ambitious contemporary art museum well worth checking out. The unfortunate abbreviation makes many think of sandwich topping made of pork's booty, but the only hunger you'll satisfy here is that for aesthetic revelation. Also admire the architecture of the so-called Tennis Palace housing the museum, as well a gigantic multiplex movie theatre. There was, however, never any tennis played here. Instead it was used as a basketball court in the 1952 Olympic Games. But that's another story. ”
