Nice view to Tampere

Really nice place to see Tampere. Lift upstairs and you see how town is located between two lakes. The restaurant downstairs has best donuts in town so do not miss it!

The cafe is surrounded with beautiful nature which gives the visit a special flavor. The doughnuts (munkki) are probably only special for those of us that have eaten them since childhood, but they are fresh (which is not the case in many cafes). And like I said there aren't that many cafes that have similar surroundings. I also recommend abseiling... More

If you search for a good coffee and something sweet with it, Pyynikin näkötorni's cafe is the right Place. Take coffee with 'munkki'

Relaxing atmosphere and a nice cafe! In the middle of the beautiful pine forest. You can also walk here from the city centre.

Very nice surroundings - yes. A cute tower in the café (chargeable) - yes. A good café - nope! I do not get the hype about the doughnuts, these are as good as anywhere else and not even the best ones in Finland. Great coffee, wide selection of different flavours, excellent café latte - nope! What you get is a... More

This small and very popular (don't be scared off by the queue) café is a wonderfull hidden gem just out of the city centre. Self made doughnuts are worth the wait - taste is fabulously good. The surrounding park area of Pyynikki is wort the trip on its own on a nice day - excellent views to the lakes by... More

And great doughnuts they are! Busy but efficient. A few other sweet treats available. Nice forest walk to the tower. Recommended small excursion.

Pyynikki Tower and dougnuts served by Tower Cafe form an iconic combination in Tampere. The Tower was built during the 1920s and it is not very high, but since it is situated on top of a ridge, it offers good views over the city, near-by lakes and forests extending to the skyline. And the doughnuts: they are fresh, tasty and... More

This place is located in a "park" surrounded by trees and forest. You can enjoy "the best Munkki" in Finland here as they say. A lot of tourists visiting here during the summer so it might be very busy. Walk around in the forest and enjoy the views to lakes. This place is extremely relaxing and good for spending couple...
