  • The former factory property of Mallasjuoma, now known as Malski, is nowadays a place for food, drink and culture with many attractions.

    The guided tour explores the malted history and the bubbly present of the building. The tour also provides a taste of the new Lahti Museum of Visual Arts Malva, which will open in 2022. In the past, Malski was the place where beer was made, but now it is a popular place to spend time.

  • A walking tour that sheds light on the history of the Mallasjuoma area and the link between the brewery building and the ambitious urban planning of the early 20th century.

    The background for the development of Mallasjuoma into a major company is linked to the development of the brewery industry and related architecture in Europe, which form a story of beer manufacturing methods, business, alcohol policy and architecture.

  • In the summer of 2020, art began to make a prominent appearance in the former brewery block when a mural Block Party, covering the entire back façade of Malski, was completed. The guided tour takes you through the story behind the mural – what did artists Laura Lehtinen and Maikki Rantala wish to convey with their colourful imagery?

  • The tour introduces the public artworks of Taideakseli (“Art Axis”), which runs along Rautatienkatu.

    You will discover sculptures, reliefs and murals that span the last century. The tour starts from Lahti Travel Centre at the equestrian statue of Marshal Mannerheim and ends at Malski.
