Jyvaskyla

Jyvaskyla ©
Jyväskylä is a city and municipality in Finland and in the western part of the Finnish Lakeland. Change things up with these side-trips from Jyvaskyla: Petajavesi Old Church (in Petajavesi), Oravivuori Triangulation Tower (in Korpilahti) and Keuruu (Church of Keuruu & Old Church of Keuruu). There's much more to do: see the interesting displays at The Alvar Aalto Museum, learn about all things military at Finnish Air Force Museum, learn more about the world around you at Natural History Museum of Central Finland, and take a leisurely stroll along Jyvaskylan Harbour.

To find where to stay, maps, photos, and other tourist information, read Jyvaskyla attractions planner.

Amsterdam, The Netherlands to Jyvaskyla is an approximately 9.5-hour combination of flight and car. You can also drive. Due to the time zone difference, you'll lose 1 hour traveling from Amsterdam to Jyvaskyla. In August, Jyvaskyla is slightly colder than Amsterdam - with highs of 22°C and lows of 10°C. Finish your sightseeing early on the 25th (Tue) to allow enough time to travel to Karstula.
