Kanttiini Café

When I started designing the building, the objective in my mind was to build a landmark – like a burning torch – which is visible far beyond the expansive plains, and shows the suffering people living there that the road to health starts from here.

Alvar Aalto 1955


On the ground floor, which opens onto the grass fields, there is a café, where visitors can buy drinks and sweet and salty bakery products. 

There is also soup during the lunch hours 11-15.

Opening hours same as Parantola’s visiting hours (except Thursdays):

Thursday 1 1 am -7  pm

Friday 11 am- 5 pm

Saturday 11 am-6 pm

Sunday 11 am- 5 pm

Warmly wellcome!
