    Main buildings are designed by Alvar Aalto. The oldest buildings are from late 19th century. Beautiful gardening.
    A real campus area, rare in Finland. Beautiful especially during the autumn with all the colours of the trees and plants.

    .... you need to be either a fan of the architect Alvar Aalto or an architect to really benefit from making the 40km round trip from Jyväskylä.
    The intriguing aspects, for me, are the thought that the main council chamber must lack natural lighting (but I've not been inside yet); the light and airiness of the unroofed courtyard with it's rectangular water feature; and the juxtaposition of the concrete steps leading up to the entrance to the Town Hall and the turf steps on the other side of the courtyard.
    This is my second visit. Four years ago I forgot to take a camera.

    Fine old building on Vapaudenkatu. As you walk up Asemakatu you will come directly to City Hall. It is worth admiring the building from the outside, even if you cannot enter.

    If you take the trouble to climb up the hill to Harju, there are beautiful views to reward you. Especially from the top of the stairs, where you have a direct view all the way down to the lake. The steps on both sides of the steep hill are popular with step runners.
