Welcome to experience the Alvar Aalto Cruise on Lake Päijänne. During the trip you will get known with Alvar Aalto’s history and the Säynätasalo Town hall (Alvar Aalto 1949-52) . Did you know that Alvar Aalto often travelled to Säynätsalo by the same boat s/s Suomi?

The genuine steam boat s/s Suomi departs from Jyväskylä harbour at 3 pm and arrives to Säynätsalo dock at 4.20 pm where the guide will be waiting for you. Together we will take a short walk to the Säynätsalo Town Hall, where you will hear more about Aalto’s unique design. After the tour you can head back to Jyväskylä by local bus (departs in front of the town hall at 7 pm).

The price includes the cruise, guidance and the bus ticket. During the cruise there’s a chance to buy buffet lunch and there’s also a cafe at the Säynätsalo Town Hall.
