Kauttua Ironworks

The old Kauttua was born during a period of over 320 years around refinement of iron and paper. Nowadays there are restaurants, museum, events, many art exhibitions and services in the Kauttua Ruukinpuisto area. Come and see the idyllic atmosphere for yourself!

The beautiful surroundings of Kauttua Ironworks function as the stage for many events in the summer as well as the winter. In the summer, there is for example the Antiques and Collectibles Fair and  many art exhibitions.

Kauttua is also known as Alvar Aalto’s architecture. The first one, the Terraced House was completed in 1938.  The design of buildings in this strong period of growth was highly influenced by Aalto and two more buildings should be mentioned: female officials’ dormitory Tipula (nowadays as a gesthouse) and labourers’ sauna and laundry building (nowadays as a café and restaurant). Aalto also created a master plan for Kauttua 1943.
