Jyväskylä is a city and municipality in Finland and in the western part of the Finnish Lakeland. Venture out of the city with trips to Himos Ski Resort (in Jamsa), Oravivuori Triangulation Tower (in Korpilahti) and Petajavesi Old Church (in Petajavesi). There's still lots to do: see the interesting displays at The Alvar Aalto Museum, test your problem-solving skills at popular escape rooms, don't miss a visit to Saynatsalo Town Hall, and stroll around Maki-Matin perhepuisto.

For maps, ratings, more things to do, and tourist information, go to the Jyvaskyla trip planning app.
