On foot or by bicycle

The size of Jyväskylä is ideal: the most important services are located within a relatively small area. The pedestrian street in the heart of the city runs from Kirkkopuisto Park to Are Square. The street has ample parking for bicycles. Getting around by bike or on foot is fast and easy in the conveniently compact centre of Jyväskylä.

  • Cycling is enjoyable outside the city centre as well. Visit the Jyväskylä map service for more information on bicycle routes.
