Location & Directions

Allas Sea Pool

Getting Here

The Allas Sea Pool is situated close to the Kauppatori marketplace and next to the SkyWheel Ferris wheel. Located in the Helsinki city centre and only a little over a kilometre from the main railway station. The entrance to the Allas is after the Kauppatori pedestrian bridge.

  • You can reach Allas with the tram lines 1, 2, 4 and 5. See the Helsinki public transport timetables.
  • If you want to go by car you need to park at a nearby parking lot since Allas doesn’t have a parking area of their own.
