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.

You can see the whole of Tampere from the tower of Pyynikki. Also excitement and terror available, should you be afraid of ancient squeaky and rusty elevators. The tower is old and it shows, but the traditional Finnish pastry called 'munkki' is fresh and tasty....More

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.

Small idyllic place just next to city center. Small hiking (up hill) from end stop of bus #2 end stop. Part of National Park, nice small cafe with famous donuts.

This was my favourite thing about Tampere. The views from the tower were amazing. I wanted to spend all day up there! It was only 2 euro. I also had a donut as it was recommended in multiple reviews, and I also highly recommend it....More

The park itself is great to walk round, and the views from the tower are panoramic, and for only 2 Euros.
