Directions to the office

Our address is Itämerenkatu 11–13, 00180 Helsinki

Helsinki Region Transport has an online route and timetable service that will help you pick the best mode of public transport, wherever you are starting from.

When you arrive in the building, staff at the reception desk will point you to the right floor.

By metro

The fastest way to get to FFI is by metro, especially if your starting point is near any metro station. Our office is located across the street from the Ruoholahti metro station. Helsinki has only one metro line and travel time from the city centre is only a few minutes.

By bus or tram

Helsinki bus lines 20 and 21 stop nearby at Ruoholahti stop.

Tram routes 7, 8 and 9 also go right by our office, stopping at Ruoholahti (8) and Länsilinkki (7 and 9).

From the airport

Trains run from the Helsinki-Vantaa airport to central Helsinki every ten minutes, and they all terminate at the central railway station. At the central station switch to a westbound metro (Tapiola or Matinkylä) and get off at Ruoholahti.

Alternatively, a taxi from the airport costs about 50 euros.

Parking

There are 10 free parking spaces reserved for our guests in the courtyard of Itämerenkatu 11–13. If you use one of these parking spaces, give your licence plate number to our reception as you arrive.

Paid parking is available in the adjacent Ruohoparkki car park at Porkkalankatu 10. Entrance to the car park is from the Porkkalankatu side or through the Itämerenkatu 7–9 courtyard.
