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), Leivonmaki National Park (in Joutsa) and Keuruu (Church of Keuruu & Old Church of Keuruu). There's much more to do: examine the collection at The Alvar Aalto Museum, take in the architecture and design of University of Jyvaskyla, get a new perspective on nature at Natural History Museum of Central Finland, and take an in-depth tour of Finnish Air Force Museum.

To see more things to do, reviews, maps, and tourist information, go to the Jyvaskyla trip planner.

Amsterdam, The Netherlands to Jyvaskyla is an approximately 9.5-hour combination of flight and car. You can also drive. You'll lose 1 hour traveling from Amsterdam to Jyvaskyla due to the time zone difference. Prepare for a bit cooler weather when traveling from Amsterdam in August: high temperatures in Jyvaskyla hover around 22°C and lows are around 10°C. Finish your sightseeing early on the 18th (Tue) to allow enough time to travel to Karstula.
