Built in 1929, Pyynikki Observation Tower offers a splendid general view of Tampere. From there, you can see Lake Näsijärvi on the north, Lake Pyhäjärvi on the south and, on a narrow strip of land, the city in between.
The tower is open throughout the year Mon-Sun. At the café of the tower, don't forget to taste the best doughnuts in town. Café's phone number 03 212 3247.
Näsinneula stands by the shore of Lake Näsijärvi in the Särkänniemi Adventure Park. At 168 metres, Näsinneula is the highest observation tower in the Nordic countries. The observation level and the revolving restaurant are not as high as that, yet the view is magnificent. You can see a fantastic panorama of the city centre and the lakes surrounding it.
