A paradise for a culture and architecture enthusiast
Explore the legendary architect Alvar Aalto’s production from his earliest works through to achievements in the latter stages of his career. Production of the world-famous architect Alvar Aalto is found extensively in the Jyväskylä region. In the master architect’s footsteps we travel from classicism to functionalism, from brick architecture to monumentalism.
Items can be found within close range from the Jyväskylä harbour. Stay in the unique houseboat surrounded by the lake and nature, and sail to Lake Päijänne to explore the impressive attractions such as an experimental house in Muuratsalo, a church in Muurame and the Säynätsalo Town Hall which is considered one of the most remarkable works in Alvar Aalto’s production. You can also explore the colourful stages of the master’s life in the Alvar Aalto Museum.
