Things to see and do

Jyväskylä offers a great deal to see and do. The city possesses numerous museums and beautiful churches which are well worth a visit. In summer various guided tours, either on foot or by bus, are arranged. These provide an opportunity to explore the work of Alvar Aalto, for example, or Jyväskylä’s attractive green spaces. Further information about guided tours: here, churches: here and museums: here.

There is also four themed routes that you can explore: The Aalto Route, The Sports Route, The Express Route and Dinner with light.

On the city centre pedestrian street visitors will find a tight network of services, shopping options and recreational venues. Shops, cafés, restaurants, theatres and museums are located close to each other to form an easily managed whole. Further information: visit.jyvaskyla.fi/en.
