An easy walk to the tower through the tall trees. We enjoyed the views of the frozen lakes. The cafè is so cozy and the doughnuts are a must.

one of the best attractions in Tampere. The view from the tower was stunning but the best part was the coffee and the great donuts we ate later!

Everyone in Tampere knows this small and crowded cafe and it's delicious pastry. And it is not a doughnut! If you visit the observation tower by the elevator, remember to buy your tickets from cashier, or choose free stairs.
