Haminalahti culture trail

The Haminalahti culture trail

The Haminalahti culture trail in Kuopio passes through landscapes painted by the famous von Wright brothers. The culture trail showcases artwork created by Ferdinand, Magnus and Wilhelm von Wright in the 1800s, how the landscape of the place where they originate from looks like today, and provides information about other cultural history of the Haminalahti area.

The culture trail includes a 3.1 km round-trip and a separate 1.2 km route to the Mustalahti bay. The trail passes alongside forest paths and country roads and is intended for hiking when the ground is thawed. The trail has been marked with sign posts and poles bearing a wood grouse symbol. While hiking on the trail is relatively easy, in includes some major differences in elevation. Stairs have been built in the steepest places. As roads with busy traffic are located near the trails, you may hear some car noise in the forest.

There is a parking area at the start of the trail. The Haminalahti lean-to with firewood is also located there. The area where the trail starts is accessible. The area also has an accessible toilet, and information board and a waste disposal site.
