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!

A nice tower though the viewing platform was not opened due to great wind. That was a pity. We did get a chance to see the panorama through glass. Opportunity to dine at their restaurant. Had a lovely blueberry cake. Price is not the cheapest.

Puijo tower itself is not very interesting, but in the surrounding protected forests there is absolutely wonderful nature trails.

The restaurant is located at the top of a television tower. The restaurant is entered by a central lift. The floor next to the outside wall revolves slowly making one rotation per hour so it is possible to see all the superb views. The food was also lovely.

Hidden in the top of hill Puijo, but still at sight and accessible, the Puijo Tower is an unique land mark in the area. Take a walk up to the hill via the nature paths, or drive there by car. Either way, you are in for a treat. The landscape of the vast Pohjois-Savo area is there to be seen.... More

Puijo Tower is kind of a must. You can see whole city from there and more, a breathtaking landscape of Kuopio region. If you are hungry or thirsty, sit down restaurant that rotates around the tower. Take time and walk into the Puijo´s forest. You won´t get lost. Pick berries or mushrooms, or just enjoy the silence and beautiful nature,... More

The hotel rooms are very clean but somewhat small and not very well equipped (tiny TV, weird looking shower). Breakfast to large, tasty and varied with nice forest views from the windows. Tower restaurant is highly recommended for dinner at sunset time in which surrounding lakes at the horizons wear magnificent Colors. There is a small forest near by with... More

If you are going to Kuopio, the Puijo tower is a must visit. Downstairs there is a gift shop where you can buy souvenirs and post cards. At the first level the restaurant is located. The upper level brings you to the cafe and to the viewing platform. Once you are on that platform you get an amazing view of... More

The Tower and hotel are only part of the whole Puijo area. It includes a golf course, downhill and cross-country skiing areas and miles of hiking trails. On a sunny Sunday morning there was a large number of people hiking and cycling in the area. It was fun to see one ski jumper practicing his craft off one of the... More
