Pyynikki Park and Observation Tower, Tampere

(4.6/5 based on 500+ reviews on the web)
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. A visit to Pyynikki Park and Observation Tower represents just the start of the adventure when you use our Tampere itinerary maker to plot your vacation.
