Guided Tour

Tour with stories in Alvar Aalto’s masterpiece

The Säynätsalo Town Hall is one of architect Alvar Aalto’s most significant works. It enjoys a unique position in the history of modern architecture. Aalto designed the town hall as a gesamtkunstwerk – a total work of art – as evidenced by the details and furniture designed especially for the building.

During the tour, you will hear stories and facts about Aalto’s life, architecture and the history of Säynätsalo as told by the house’s own guide. The guided tour takes about 30 minutes.

Guided tours are also available at other times by separate bookings for both individual travelers and groups. Ask for an offer: or +358 46 582 1060.
