Alvar Aalto – e la natura – architectural cruise From Jyväskylä
Welcome to experience the Alvar Aalto Cruise on Lake Päijänne. The most well
known Finnish architect Alvar Aalto used to spend his time in the beautiful Säynätsalo area where he also used to have his summer house – designed by himself of course. During this trip you’ll get known with Alvar Aalto’s history and the Säynätasalo Town hall which is designed by Aalto. Did you know that Alvar Aalto has often travelled to Säynätsalo by the steamboat s/s Suomi?
Our Steamboat s/s Suomi departs from Jyväskylä harbour at 14.00 pm and arrives to Säynätsalo dock at 15.20pm where the guide is waiting for you. Together with the guide you’ll find your way to the Säynätsalo Town Hall where the guide will tell you more about Aalto’s unique design. After the tour you’ll head back to Jyväskylä by local bus nro 16 (the bus departs from Säynätsalo for example at 17.00, you can check the whole bus timetable from here).
