I really liked the view on this old watchtower, which is excellent and if you walk a little bit further you come to a park with a lake shore where you can raft, swim or fish.

The tower is situated in a nice forest park, and it's an easy walk uphill to get to it. It's €2 to go up the tower, and you get a good view of the two lakes that sandwich Tampere. The view is decent, just nothing...More

Very scenic view overlooking Tampere. It took 2euro each for the tower, but the view was beautiful. But, we think the best part was the donuts in the Cafe. Best. Donut. EVER!

I visited the tower and the park. The view from the tower is very nice. You can see pretty far from the tower. The park is nice for a walk or to go biking.

It is not a must, but if you have time, and the weather is really nice, might be worth to pay 2€ to go up on the tower, and enjoy the view. Not far from the center.

Great view over Tampere city, cheap to visit(tower was couple Euros, park is free), doughnuts are amazing. The nature at the park is calmful and offers many citizens a place to jog and walk. Worth to visit especially for tourists.

You can see the whole of Tampere from the tower of Pyynikki. Also excitement and terror available, should you be afraid of ancient squeaky and rusty elevators. The tower is old and it shows, but the traditional Finnish pastry called 'munkki' is fresh and tasty....More
