If you're a fan of old historic sites this is must visit in Tampere. Located in the middle of beautiful forest and the view to the city as well as two lakes so make sure to bring your camera. After admiring the scenery remember to enjoy a cup of coffee and Finnish donuts at the Tower's famous cafeteria.

Pyynikki forms a ridge between two beautiful lakes. The view from the tower is grand and the donuts baked on site superb. A must for visitors to Tampere.

This landmark in Tampere offers great view from the top, and best sugar donuts in town. Cafeteria is extremely small, but during summer time it has tables also outside. Worth visiting if new in town.

Cheap overview of the town of Tampere! You must have taste of the freshly baked doughnuts, they're delicious. Admire the view of both sides lakes: Näsijärvi and Pyhäjärvi.

Everything is humble but original. Tampere is old industrial city and moste of people in olden times had hard work and not much... More

The park and observation tower is a must if you are near Pyynikki. Not only the view but the best home made doughnuts (cafeteria rated separately on Tripadvisor)! Compared to the Näsinneula observation tower (8 euros), the elevator ticket is only 2 e/0,50 e but the sights are pretty much the same. To be noted: Pyynikki park is very hilly.
