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.

  • The observation tower was really good, it was only 2E and you get a really good view over Tampere, well worth a visit, cheaper than the Nasinneula Tower.  more »
  • Perfect spot for a nice walk and a visit to the observation tower which offers a great view of the city. There was a long lane, but that was to the cafeteria which is downstairs.  more »

  • Excellent spot for architecture, history or nature lovers. There you will taste the best donut in Tampere. The small cafe offers freshly bakes donuts daily. I went at 7pm and the donut was just made!! Friendly staff always and 2€ to go up and see the view of both lakes and whole Tampere.
  • It's easy to get to this place. It's just a walk away from city center and then you are in this huge green area. The view from the top is amazing. The coffee shop's munkki is delicious. Lots of locals enjoy it.
