If you ever visit a Tampere this is a place to go (walk). Besides seeing beautiful (and world highest?) Pyynikki -esker, there is this small cafe in sightseeing tower. These Finnish sugar donuts (munkki) they bake there several time a day are a must to eat when in Tampere. If you don't like Finnish (roast) coffee, take one of the... More

Many people in Tampere say doughnut of Pyynikin Nakotornin Kahvila is the most delicious of Tampere. Some of them even say that it is the Finland's number one. The cafe is surrounded by forest and there is a walking trail leading to the cafe. So, we frequently visit this cafe while enjoining walking exercise. The walking trail is nice location... More

Very nice atmosphere in 1929 built observation tower. The Café is famous of its donuts and the experience was great in this time again as expected. Nice jugend style decoration ornaments, old fashioned interior makes you feel like living in the past.
