First go for a walk through the paths and go see Pispala and then Tahmela beach as well. Take the Pispala Stairs from Tahmela going up, go back to the tower and you have deserved the doughnut with coffee or refreshing drink. After all this you go to the observation tower to check where you walked earlier, and you have... More

From the tower it's possible to see both lakes, the northern one, Näsijärvi, as well as the southern one, Pyhäjärvi. After you get your bearings, the next stop is a café in the same building. One must try their doughnut(s). Some people say it if you manage to eat the whole doughnut without licking sugar off your lips, you will... More

If you're visiting at Tampere, you definitely should go to over 80-year old Pyynikki observation tower, enjoy the wonderful views and taste their delicious doughnuts, which are baked on a spot. Quaranteed fresh ones.

After a walk in the nature of the Pyynikin park, you will reach this little café at the feet of an observation tower. After you had a sight from the high, you must taste the american coffee served here, and obviously eat a fantastic donut....the best donut you ever eaten. 2€+2€ was the price.

Do as the locals do. Go get their famous doughnut and coffee and enjoy them in the beautiful atmosphere. There are also great jogging paths if you feel like burning some of that doughnut or just want to enjoy the nature.

A coffee place in a very unique atmosphere. Their sugar buns are famous. The only thing is that the buns used to be better and guaranteed good quality but now a days the quality seems to vary depending on the day. Some times they are just like they used to be and sometimes they taste like a day old. This... More
