Forssa Spinning Mill

Visit museums and exhibitions, and enjoy refreshments at the terrace by the 36-meter-tall factory chimney. Check out the Kuhalankoski rapids and admire the green landscape which brings together the historic 1800’s industrial red-brick architecture, as well as the park that borders it.
The historic Forssa cotton mill was founded by Swedish-born Axel Wahren in 1847. The spinning mill was soon followed by a weaving mill, yarn dye works and the first industrial fabric printing plant in the country. The developing textile industry soon attracted people from near and far, and the small factory town grew into a city.
The spinning mill ceases operating in 1980, after which it has been renovated into a vibrant cultural centre and a fun place to visit.
