Cheap and good view
Apr 2021
The observation tower was really good, it was only 2E and you get a really good view over Tampere, well worth a visit, cheaper than the Nasinneula Tower.

Nice walk and tower
Oct 2020
Perfect spot for a nice walk and a visit to the observation tower which offers a great view of the city. There was a long lane, but that was to the cafeteria which is downstairs.

Classic place to visit in Tampere
Nov 2019 • Family
Pyynikki observatorion Tower is a classic in Tampere. Cafeteria serves excellent locally baked doughnuts, with qualified coffee of course. Summertime place is usually very popular, so reserve time to pleasant visit. Great views over Tampere are also there.

Nice break
Sep 2019
An easy and pleasant walk though quiet suburbs and woods to the hilltop tower and viewpoint.

Reflect, as you do, that Lenin and Stalin strolled here in 1919, and, reportedly, practiced target shooting on the hillside.

Beautiful views, beautiful doughnuts!
Oct 2018
We really enjoyed our visit. Very reasonably priced. We arrived just after sunset and still had a wonderful view. You can take an elevator or the stairs to reach the top of the tower. Make sure you stop into the cafe to warm up, enjoy the coffee, try the fresh doughnuts and have a hygge visit. Yum!

Easy Access and cheap entry
Aug 2019 • Friends
The walk to the Observation tower is through a nice park. You pay €2 for entry and there's no time limit to your visit. Take an elevator up and down to view the city landscapes and lakes.

Must visit at Tampere
Sep 2019 • Solo
Pyynikki is one of the best places at Tampere to go walking or jogging in the forest. From the observation tower there is great views over Tampere. Enjoy Finnish nature here!

Overlooking Tampere
Aug 2019
We had a walk from Tampere Center up to the Pyynikki Park and Tower. A very nice walking Park, it is steep and very nice. There is also a road going up so you can also drive up there. At the top you will find the Pyynikki Oberservation Tower, which is 26 meter high. You can enter the tower at a small fee of 2,00 Euro p.p. Do go up it gives you the best view of Tampere, you can walk the stairs or take the elevator.
There is also a small cafe at the top, they should have the best Donuts in town, we did miss the donuts but there is a cafe i downtown selling them as well,Rhey are good.
But do visit Pyynikki Park and Tower

If you come to Tampere you should make time to go here. It cost a few euros to go to the tower. Make sure its a nice weather.
