Moving cc public domain img.jpg Helsinki Hacklab has newly moved to a new location.

Starting from November 2014 our new address will be Takkatie 18 in Pitäjänmäki, Helsinki. Please note that our weekly operations start to normalize from beginning of 2015.

We expect most of the work be ready in November, but before that, we are renovating the new location. This means that there are cancellations and exceptions in our regular weekly meetings. If you plan to visit us, please bear in mind that we might have not much time to keep this website or other information up to date, so be in contact with us beforehand and we can tell you the current situation.


Helsinki Hacklab is the first Finnish open hackerspace. We organize workshops, lectures and collaborative projects for our members. For public we have an event series called Open Day where our current projects are demonstrated to anyone with interests. Our focus has been in electronics and embedded systems, but we are open to any agenda. We have workrooms for electronics, woodwork and general computer use plus 3D-priting. Please mind that, as for 10/2014, our laser cutter is still under repair.


The space is located about 9 kilometers from Helsinki city center. You can reach us with bus or train. The place is between two train stations: Pitäjänmäki (Helsinki local traffic zone) and Mäkkylä (Espoo zone). These stations also have bus stops, and e.g. route 550 goes past. Check Reittiopas for Helsinki region public transport routes to the lab: Directions to Takkatie 18.


Weekly meetings every Tuesday staring at 17.00 and usually continuing past midnight, but very likely somebody is hanging around in the lab at this very moment too. To visit the space contact us beforehand on our IRC channel or post list, or if you happen to be already around, please call our phone number or ring the doorbell. We are happy to receive visitors!


You can find all Finnish "official" independent Hacklabs, as they are called here, from hacklab.fi.
