Alvar Aalto (1898 – 1976) was a world-famous Finnish architect and a pioneer of modern architecture and design.

Alvar Aalto Route is a way to help find buildings and sites designed by Alvar Aalto, in an easier way than before. We’ve already listed most of the sites all over Finland and elsewhere in Europe. But first of all, you can find interesting tours and day-trip programs to Aalto-cities. We love Aalto’s architecture, and are happy to introduce you to it, too!

We didn’t do this alone. Our collaborators and friends at the Ministry of Culture and in the Aalto -cities made this new online service possible.

Alvar Aalto Route – 20th Century Architecture and Design was awarded with the Certificate of Cultural Routes of the Council of Europe in 2021!  Discover unique European cultural heritage and more at Cultural Routes of the Council of Europe website

There are plenty! In Finland alone, you can find Alvar Aalto designed buildings and sites in 22 cities or municipalities. 16 of them have launched this website together with us. You’ll find booking information and the travel agencies for more detailed questions, in each tour’s Book-page. You can also follow the links to the different Aalto-cities’ travel information services in these pages. Enjoy your tour!

You’re operating an interesting Alvar Aalto designed site? You serve audiences as a museum, visitors site, or  architecture and design -related travel organization? You can join us, become a member of the Alvar Aalto Route and present your own Aalto tour on this website!
