Great view and doughnuts

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.

Walking distance from the center with beautiful scenery and trails. Also the observation tower offers nice views of both lakes before heading to the downstairs cafeteria for the best doughnuts.

With 2 euro you can get to the tower (buy your tickets from the cafeteria) either by walking the stairs (good exercise) or take the elevator! On the top you can find indoor and outdoor observation spot. After being in the cold you can go to the cosy and warm cafeteria and taste the best doughnuts in town! Prepare to... More
