Target for a walk

If you've got a spare moment, walk to this tower in the forest and order a 'kahvi ja munkki'. You'll get a tasty coffee with a local bun.

Once you get to the top of the tower, you can see a huge part of the city. It's a very nice view and usually quite windy too! They have a lift up the tower, so that's pretty convenient.

There's apparently another observation tower in Tampere but this one is very inexpensive and is attached to a donut cafe, so I would highly recommend this one!

The walk to the observation tower is very picturesque through the Forrest. It only takes about 20 minutes from the Main Street. The tower has great views over all of Tampere (although when I went the cold weather meant that there was frost on some of the Windows which obscured my view on some of the Windows). It was very...

A simple cafe in a central but still peaceful place in Tampere. Open every day, which is not at all common in this country.

Lovely spot on the top of a hill. Finland has many hills and no mountains (unless Norway gives Finland the peak of Halti). The cafe is known for its coffee and munkki (doughnut), and of course the view at the top of the tower.

Visit the tower to see the town nested between the two lakes. Eat the donuts that the locals love downstairs. I challenge you to eat your donut without licking your lips :) If visiting in the winter, dress warm.

This place is a must if you appreciate a nice doughnut! They are best in town if not possibly the country. Also the scenery around is beautiful and optimal for a walk or run even. If you get up the tower the view is fantastic. The rates are not bad at the cafe and the scenery is totally free, I... More

Must-see place in Tampere especially in spring and summer. Pyynikki observation tower is near the city center but still hidden in the beautiful woods. You can take the bus number 25 from near the Pyynikki market area to the tower, but I truly recommend that you find your way there by foot through the forest if you have time. The... More
