Historical place to visit

This place has probably the best donuts in Tampere region. Because of that definitely worth of visit. Scenery is awesome as well. You can either climb up to the tower (costs couple of euros) or simply wonder through the woods to vantage point.

great place to visit for walk in summer or autumn. Nothing particullary to do just wandering through forest-park. Next to the Tower it is nice munches in cafe, but cafe is tiny and always overcrowded. Nothing else in the whole area

Visited for an extended family outing on a rainy day. I did not go up the observation tower looked like it costs 2€. The warm donut was fantastic. Reminded me of the cider ones I get back in Michigan in the fall. On a nicer day there are plenty of trails to walk and of course the tower Which offers... More

Stopped here on a walk of the area( you can get a map from the Tourist information office and take the green route). On the day we were there they had a cycle race on and as this was the start/finish line the place was packed. For a few Euros you can have the pleasure of climbing the steps to... More

Should you visit Tampere, you have to go for a cup of coffee and a donut in this observation tower! It is located on the top of a hill and you have a great view over the city and the surrounding lakes. Donuts are excellent.

This traditional place is always open, exept in the nights. It's very popular anyway, especially in the weekends. You may have to wait for a moment. People meet there with their motorbikes every Sunday. You can enjoy the history and old athmosphare. They have own mixed coffee and their donut buns are best in Tampere. Only payment of the price...

I made some off my coworkers go to the tower with me after seeing reviews on trip advisor. We walked from the city centre and walked long the trails by the lake. Going in that way took us a little longer, but the views along the lake were beautiful. We went to the tower mainly for the donuts that other... More

Nice view from the tower of lake and tampere city. Downstairs legendary finnish pastry (covered in lot of sugar) is offered, which is quite famous it seems. Nice place.

very naturally beautiful, full of high trees, just between two big lakes. when we visited one lake was frozen and the other was not. you may need to walk little up, but it is worth of doing. you may even opt for steep trails. we could manage to do one with a small kid. you must try the doughnut there...
