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.

  • Very nice view and the best munkki in town. Easy to find by bus or by walkin. Tickets to the tower are not too exspencive. I take my guests here instead of Näsinneula. Worth going when visiting Tamper...  more »
  • Quite a popular place, there is a nice view from the tower. Also there is a cafe where the famous donuts are being served. 
  • Went close to Tampere from friends while enjoying the rumors of Donuts and delicious. Walking around beautiful Lake Tower is over more than an hour from the city, friend walks up the mountain, what goes so exhausted, he is on the lookout. But nice views from the tower and is happy. Donut but say the world's most delicious. Cardamom scent and flavour! I have become a fan. Having only one didn't have one 2 euro,... more Please eat it! Buy cardamom in the Tampere market and went back. I made a cinnamon roll, cardamom, is preferable.
