Nice view from top of the tower to Näsijärvi and Pyhäjärvi lakes. Entrance fee only 2€! Very good donuts in the cafeteria downstairs.

Stairs or a lift take you to the top of the tower, where you have an all-round panorama of the city. The parkland around there is very pleasant, clean and well maintained, and even has interesting wild flowers growing. The cafe promotes their doughnuts which are very good, though the small seating area was very very busy and we had... More

Just had a ball with all the kids at the beach area (near the open air theatre). Kids and parents played in the sea, space for relaxing and areas for picnics.

The very popular coffee and doughnut stop. The doughnuts are always fresh and often still warm. They do vegan doughnuts too which are really delicious.

Pyynikki is a must to visit place for the Finns. So if you come to Tampere from outside of Finland, you should definitely visit there. Nice finnish view and coffee plus delicious donuts from observation tower. Enjoy!

The tower is located on the top of a hill, so you are at the highest point possible. There is an elevator that will bring you on top of the tower. The price to get in... More

We went to the observation tower in the evening, after the park was closed. It was a bit difficult to find the parking lot, as signs were only in Finnish. The price was reasonable (EUR 5) and the view from the tower beautiful. Recommended if visibility is good, and if you are not interested in the amusement park come after... More

This city park has great reputation among Finns and no wonder. It's a really nice escape from the city life and located between two big lakes. On the top of the hill you can find an observation tower and some nice, fresh doughnuts.
