Things to do

To gain insight into local culture, visit the Museum of Mechanical Music, one of the most unique museums in Finland. This museum contains the biggest collection of mechanical musical instruments in all of the Nordic regions, including the world’s largest orchestrion and Amadeus Street organ.

For stunning city views, head up to the Varkaus Water Tower Terrace. Have a drink at the top of the observation deck, sit back and relax in the sun chairs and soak up the natural surroundings and beautiful lake below.
