"Buying a book.....from the Academic Bookshop" Top 5 Page for this destination Helsinki Favorite Tip by gordonilla

Helsinki General: 193 reviews and 193 photos

  Academic Bookshop
by gordonilla

Favorite thing: The book store is linked to the Stockmann department store by an underground walkway. The shop is well worth a visit and it will give you an opportunity to buy your travel reading material.

There are 3 floors of books, well laid out and easy to navigate. They host book signings from time to time and it is always keeping an eye on their programme of events and launches.

The Aalto Cafe is a good place to stop, especially if you are over awed by the thought of so many books.

Fondest memory: Being able to purchase signed copies of English language books.

Review Helpfulness: 2.5 out of 5 stars
