Jyvaskyla ©
Jyväskylä is a city and municipality in Finland and in the western part of the Finnish Lakeland. Eschew the tourist crowds and head to Padasjoen Tuomastornit and Maki-Matin perhepuisto. Explore Jyvaskyla's surroundings by going to Oravivuori Triangulation Tower (in Korpilahti), Leivonmaki National Park (in Joutsa) and Paijatsalo Trail (in Sysma). And it doesn't end there: make a trip to University of Jyvaskyla, stroll through Tourujoen Luontopolku, admire the landmark architecture of Kuokkalan kartano, and take in the waterfront at Jyvaskylan Harbour.

To see traveler tips, photos, where to stay, and other tourist information, read our Jyvaskyla day trip planning website.

Copenhagen, Denmark to Jyvaskyla is an approximately 8.5-hour combination of flight and car. You can also drive. Due to the time zone difference, you'll lose 1 hour traveling from Copenhagen to Jyvaskyla. Expect a daytime high around °C in July, and nighttime lows around °C. Wrap up your sightseeing on the 10th (Wed) early enough to travel to Saarijarvi.
