Best donuts in town!

A little hike away from the center. This place is legendary for its tasty donuts. Everyone in Tampere knows them and they are worth the little hike. Great view.

We walked here in the morning and visited the bakery in the tower; the donuts were warm and tasted great! The view from the tower is a little crowded but definitely worth the 2 Euro if you are looking to take some great photos. Recommend spending the day to take advantage of the many trails around the tower.

The tower itself is not very big thing. Nature around is pretty cool. There is an untouchable forest in almost heart of the city. Visit to tower takes maybe 1 hour top, but you can easily spend hours by trekking in the forest around it without fear to get lost. There are very good trails to follow and nice view... More

Home made donuts - traditional and excellent. Nice terrace but no real view. Place to visit but nothing extraordinary.

Really nice place with a great view! There is also a cafeteria that serves e.g. good coffee and the famous Finnish sweet delicasies called the "Munkki".

Tasty sweet and just baked buns called munkki (the direct translation is a munck) taht all locals want to eat when they walk in the area. Be prepared to queue! But they are worth it. The nice tower is a little smaller than Näsineula, but with a more historical tone. The surrounding area is well worth the stroll.

Do pay to go up the tower, and do take the stairs up to the view point! It's a climb, but once you see the view, you'll know it was worth it!
