Visited 12.03.2015 I went up the tower just to see what my Finnish colleagues were talking about when they said how good it was, well, I was not disappointed, the 360 degree view is breath taking, I had views of frozen lakes with the low winter sun shining on them, there is the ski jump and the people skiing below....

There is no many attractions to visit in Kuopio, but if you have time and you like beautiful landscapes this is a must see place. Especially in summer time you can see the beautiful Kallavesi lake and forests from here. It really looks like, that Kuopio is a city in the middle of the forest. Beautiful. The tower itself looks...

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
