Pyynikki national park is worth a walk. It's not huge, but see where the route goes and stay uphill so you'll avoid the steepest parts. Or do the opposite and walk up and down the locally famous stairs. Afterwards have cup of coffee or a glass of soda and a doughnut, which are also available as vegan versions! Then climb... More

This is one of the nicest places in Tampere. The park is great with some nice lake views, it's not too big and you really can't get lost. Entrance fee to the observation tower is cheap (2€ adults) and the 360 degree views from the top are great. The main thing, I suppose, are however the delicious and cheap (1,90€... More

Been there many times and every time the view from up top is beatiful. They also make their own "donuts" so its all fresh and warm every time you want one. During the summer it's very popular and very crowdy. Also watch out for bees! Not to forget its in the middle of the beatiful forest where a lot of... More

This is the small cozy cafe with tasty donats. They make them with their own recipe. Donats are "best in the world". The Observation tower is in pine forest between two lakes. There are several nice paths in the ridge. Not far from Tampere center. This is the Place to visit.

Went here to check out the beautiful view. We were not disappointed in the view. The cafe was closed. The sit down restraunt was a little expensive but if you eat there entrance to the tower is free. Getting there was easy. Overall worth it if you eat at the tower overpriced at 5 euro a piece if you do... More

This tower is located slightly outside of the centre of Tampere. But it's nice to walk there on a sunny day, it will take you about 30 minutes from Keskustori. The tower itself costs 2 euro, but I have seen people not pay. I don't know why. There is an elevator to take you up but there are also stairs.... More

The tower does not look that tall but once you step out in the top floor, you surprise. The view is truly outstanding; you will see over the whole city. It has also a lift but it doesnt go to the balcony roof, so little climbing is required.

Nice city seeing and easy to get. There is even a lift if you do not want to climb the 70 steps stair... You can have some excellent warm donuts at the same place.

The traditional and legendary doughnuts, a cup of something warm to drink and a climb to the best view over the city. A nice thing to do even in the spring or fall when it's not so warm!
