Cozy little cafe and observation deck worthwhile to visit in Tampere. Would suggest taking a stroll / walk through the Pyynikki park and end it visiting the tower for a beer or coffee.

Very nice view and the best munkki in town. Easy to find by bus or by walkin. Tickets to the tower are not too exspencive. I take my guests here instead of Näsinneula. Worth going when visiting Tampere.

This place is a very nice spot to see all of Tampere. The cost was 2 euro per adult. the coffee and doughnuts are also some of the best I have tasted. Very worthwhile to visit.

Beautiful walk to get to the tower through the forest! Cheap (2€) to get up the tower and lift available. There you can see all Tampere and have an idea of the size of the city! A must!!

This pictoresque, classictic observation tower is easy to reach by car and offers a lovely view and a fine indoor-outdoor cafe with the best, fresh baked, sugar covered doughnuts. By the way, only their shape is a doughnut, they are actually made of yeast batter, which is very traditional Finnish. There is a small fee for getting up the tower... More

The tower wasn't quite as tall as I expected but after climbing up the steps (and walking up the hill to get to the tower) I felt I had earned my doughnut. Good views from the top and an enjoyable visit.
