If you want to spent about an hour, just visit this place. Enjoy nice view from the tower to both lakes and to the Tampere city, relax with a cup of coffee or tea and beautiful donuts and make a walk in the park around.

The amazing ridge between two lakes in Tampere s really a must see place if you have a half day to spare! Beautiful forest walks, amazing views, and coffe with doughnuts still warm in the cafe of the old tower.

I liked the view from the tower, but my favorite part was actually taking a hike around the park afterwards. Such a peaceful picturesque place right in the city!

Nice atmosphere. Marvelous doughnut. Good coffee. Friendly staff. A great view of an old observation tower in Tampere and around the beautiful lake scenery.

This, in my opinion, is the best place in the whole Tampere. First, you have a lovely cup of coffee and the best doughnut of your life, then you go to the top of the tower and enjoy the views.
