The tower offers nice views around the surrounding area, and you can see the lakes around Tampere. The tower has a nice, small café, where you can have the best doughnuts in the town.

To the scenic: Probably it will be amazing in summer when you're on the tower and relax, everything is green etc. But you really see the tampere thing, the two lakes... More

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.

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
