Go when the weather is good

See the perfect view upstairs and eat nice pullas downstairs. Only minus is you need to walk for a while to get there and it is not bad at all when you are surrounded by the trees.

I liked it that it's only € 2,- to get up. You see a lot of the sourroundings. There is also a small coffee place to grad some drinks.

Easy to find, though parking lot is quite small. Lots of people so we didn't fit in, we ate our doughnuts outside. Friendly staff and so fresh coffee and doughnuts. Good prises too. The view is awesome, definitely go there again.

Just wonderful old granite tower where you can see over the town of Tampere and over the two big lakes on the both sides of the town. The tower is locating in the highest point of Pyynikki ridge and in the midle of Pyynikki National Park. There is a also a famous cafe in the tower building. The distance from... More

The best place to view over Tampere. The observation level is as high as Näsinneula's and the surrounding park is fantastic compared to the amusement park around Näsinneula. The cafe downstairs is famous of it's buns (munkki) well woth of experimenting. Well, near Näsinneula you find Sara Hilden art museum if you are not nature affectinado.

This is a must in Tampere. If you wish very nice natural environment, great view or best-in-town doughnut this place is for you. Remember to visit the tower also.

Go to Pyynikki tower to enjoy the beautiful views of the city of Tampere and surroundings (you'll be able to see Nasijarvi lake to the north, and Pyhajarvi lake to the south). Also, there's a small café where you can eat the best munkkis (similar to a doughnut) of Finland. Plus, if you eat something at the café/restaurant, you'll get... More

This is an absolutely beautiful part of Tampere. The Tower is a great way to get a fantastic panoramic view of the city and surrounding area. Making it even better is the coffee shop on the ground floor. The doughnuts they serve are fantastic, and the coffee is better than most of the other places in town. The park in... More
