About the Training Centre in Helsinki

All our courses in Helsinki will take place either in the Morning (9:00 13:45) or in the Afternoon (14:00 – 18:45) depending on classroom and trainer availability.

Our training center is located at Kamppi, a district in the middle of downtown Helsinki. Kamppi has a culture for all the senses to offer. It is the heart of the Finnish music scene: more than half of the city’s live music venue capacity is filled here.

You can also find the functionalist landmark buildings Lasipalatsi (Glass Palace) and Tennispalatsi (Tennis Palace) which were built in the 1930s. The buildings nowadays host the HAM Helsinki Art Museum, the largest multiplex cinema, and Amos REX art museum.

The busiest spot in Kamppi is the Kamppi Centre, which opened in 2006. The complex has become a meeting point for young people and includes a shopping center, a bus terminal, a metro station, plenty of restaurants, as well as apartments.

Kamppi stretches all the way to the Hietalahti Market Square and the sea. The long street called Fredrikinkatu is dotted with little shops and sights on Kalevankatu and includes old wooden houses.

Public transport in Helsinki:

Tickets can be easily bought through the city transport HSL application, or at ticket machines in metro stations. The tickets allow you to transfer between modes of transport within their validity, including bus, tram, and boat. A single AB zone ticket valid for 80 minutes costs 3.1€.

A day ticket is a good option if you make several journeys during one day or several days. Day tickets are valid for 1 to 7 days (from 9€ to 36€).

Go Helsinki card is another option that includes access to public transport in zone ABC, and entrance to attractions and museums. The card is valid for 24, 48, or 72 hours (from 51€ to 82€).

The training center is easily accessible, just a 3-minute walk from Kamppi metro station.

Our address: Annankatu 31-33 C 45B (5.5 floor) 00100 Helsinki

Helsinki and Surroundings

Founded by King Gustavus Vasa of Sweden (to which Finland belonged for many centuries), Helsinki’s history is deeply related to the wars the country has been through, with long years of suffering.

However, that does not mean that the capital hasn’t developed its own unique essence. In the post-war years, agrarian Finland evolved into what is now a modern industrial land, with suburbs such as Herttoniemi, Maunula, and Pihlajamäki. What once was an inhabited city is today an international, innovative, and prosperous one.

Helsinki’s architecture, marked by Modernism, Functionalism, and Art Noveau, makes it a city of intricate and multifaceted designs, like Löyly, Temppeliaukio Church, or Kamppi Chapel – places you should definitely visit!

Best Things to Do in Helsinki

1) Suomenlinna Sea Fortress

A UNESCO World Heritage Site located on a group of islands, the Suomenlinna Sea Fortress is one of the most popular tourist destinations in Finland.

2) Temppeliaukio Church

Due to its unique design being excavated into solid rock, the Temppeliaukio Church is one of Helsinki’s main attractions. Completed in 1969, the church walls are lined with rugged rock and rubble walls which makes the building so distinctive. Try to visit the Temppeliaukio Church before noon to see how light spreads from the row of windows surrounding the roof periphery to the altar wall, a truly magical sight.

3) Helsinki Cathedral

Situated on the north side of Senate Square, Helsinki Cathedral is one of the most visited spots in Helsinki and has even become the symbol of the city. Its roof is lined with statues of the 12 apostles, effectively ‘guarding’ the city. This building is a prime example of neoclassical architecture which can also be recognized in other parts of the city.

4) Senate Square

Senate Square is located just in front of Helsinki Cathedral. The buildings surrounding it: Government Palace, University of Helsinki, the National Library, and Helsinki Cathedral are all further examples of Neoclassical architecture. Being steeped in history, this square alone makes up the oldest part of the city.

5) Sibelius Park

This seaside park was constructed in honor of Finnish composer Jean Sibelius (1865-1957). Within the park lies a monument constructed by Finnish artist Elia Hiltunen entitled Passio Musicae which is made up of more than 600 hollow steel pipes merged together. Take a trip to Sibelius Park and discover yet another artistic style.

6) Central Library Oodi

The Helsinki Central Library Oodi, which is most commonly referred to as ‘Oodi’ is one of Helsinki’s public libraries. Its unique open plan and airy design are perfect for studying, educational events, and taking some time out to read one of its 100,000 books!

7) Design Museum

The Design Museum in Helsinki is home to pieces from both Finland and across the world. The museum is 147 years old and continues to dedicate itself to exhibiting industrial, fashion, and graphic design from 1870 to the present day. It really is a must-visit spot!
