The website presents several Aalto destinations in Helsinki. They include Finlandia Hall, the Rautatalo Office Building, the House of Culture, Studio Aalto (the architect’s office) and the Aalto House (the home and studio).
There is a long list of Aalto destinations elsewhere in Finland. The destinations in the Lake Päijänne region include the acclaimed Säynätsalo Town Hall, Muuratsalo Experimental House, which was the architect’s summer home, and the Alvar Aalto Museum, which allows visitors to immerse themselves in the world of Aalto’s architecture, design and personal history.
The tours have been designed and realized jointly by experts of Alvar Aalto Foundation, local tour guides and local entrepreneurs. This national architectural tour and tourism project was coordinated by Alvar Aalto Foundation and supported by the project fund of Finland’s Ministry of Education and Culture for cultural tourism products.
The website is available in English and Finnish.
