Pyynikki Park and Observation Tower, Tampere

4.5
Admire nature, striking views, and a tasty treat in the famous cafe at Pyynikki Park and Observation Tower. Stroll through the conservation park before heading over to the site's cultural landmark, the observation tower. The first tower was built in this spot in 1868; the current structure was completed in 1929, after destruction from the civil war. Climb to the top of the tower for scenic panoramas, and be sure to visit its cafe, beloved by locals and visitors for its doughnuts, which have been made using the same recipe since the early 20th century.

  • Revelation 4:11 “Worthy are you, our Lord and God, to receive glory and honor and power, for you created all things, and by your will they existed and were created.”  more »
  • To reach the tower, we walked all the time up. The way to it also delivers aesthetic pleasure in good weather and gives a decent workout. It is small in itself, but due to the fact that it is on a hill, the view from it opens almost as beautiful as with Nasinneula. You can climb the elevator, but the staircase was not closed. Tickets at a symbolic price of 1 and 2 euros. The park around it-ennobled by footpaths and benches forest. Perfect place to relax.

  • They have really nice coffee but I'm not a fan of their famous bun. The cafe was full, so I took the coffee up and enjoyed the view. Coffee and entrance fee to top were 2 € each.
  • Very nice place with realllly good donuts. Go to the top for 2 euros. The view is definitely worth it!
