Go on top and take a look of all Kuopio. Then some food at the tower restaurant. These are must things to do when visiting but besides that Puijo does not offer anything else.

A very nice uphill trip either on the road or via the grand stair on the other side of the Puijo hill at the ski stadium by the ski jumpong tower. There are also stairs in the tower itself. An after all this climbing you can have a nice dinner/lunch at the tower restaurant and view the scenes 360'.

The tower gives panoramic views over the whole city! There are information boards provided so you can see what you are looking at and in which direction you are looking. On a clear day I can imagine that you can see for miles! Unfortunately, this was not the case when I was there but it was beautiful anyway. The area... More

There are not so many cities with more than 100000 inhabitants AND a 500 hectar natural park quite in the middle of the city. Puijo hill is such a place in Kuopio, Finland. The scenery itself is astonishing with old forest and nature reservoir. The tower is not the highest in the world, but the view over lake Kallavesi is... More

It looks ugly and a bit scary outside and even more scary inside but it is safe and worth a visit. The scene from the up is absolutely wonderful and gives you the idea what Finland is about: lakes and forests. On a good weather you see tens of kilometers away. Don't pay a visit on a cloudy day!
