  • Very large train station with great architecture inside and out. Hotel nearly so used to get to the airport in 25 minute trip. Lots around the area and plenty inside the station

  • Always busy , so much on offer in the station premises , from coffee, snacks , clothing , souvenirs. The list goes on the Hub for all rail travel which is excellent in Finland.
  • Lockers are for 4€ and bigger I think for 6€ - coins only! But behind lockers there is a machine for change your bank notes to coins. The main building itself looks amazing.
