I visited the tower and the park. The view from the tower is very nice. You can see pretty far from the tower. The park is nice for a walk or to go biking.

It is not a must, but if you have time, and the weather is really nice, might be worth to pay 2€ to go up on the tower, and enjoy the view. Not far from the center.

Great view over Tampere city, cheap to visit(tower was couple Euros, park is free), doughnuts are amazing. The nature at the park is calmful and offers many citizens a place to jog and walk. Worth to visit especially for tourists.

Have a really tasty doughnut and do some exercise by climbing the stairs up to one of the city's most fascinating view points!

Really lovely view of the town, and nice to see it from above. It’s 2 euros to climb to the top of the tower. The staff weren’t very friendly, but the cafe is great, and it’s nice to experience.
