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.

  • Certainly a wonderful park, you can walk perfectly, then bite donut and ascend to the observation platform. But here's the view from the review site (two euros), loses mind from Näsinneula observation tower. I would even say so-climb to the observation platform does not make any sense.

  • Visit the Moomin Valley Museum, walk about 15 minutes. While watching the map around in the Museum went to trail. Were going up the mountain, forest, pleasant stroll. Was to go without getting lost. Observatory using the stairs. An elevator lift is like? Is so scary. Up the first word. "Wow ~" and came out thinking voice in the awesome views. Off the famous Donuts & coffee. Sweet Donuts are delicious. Walk or catch a bus on the way back I thought, but I come up near the station. I do not feel tired it took about 45 minutes, but pleasant air while walking.

  • The view and donuts are worth the trip. The park is beautiful in the fall. I climbed all the stairs.
