“High observation tower with a really, really good restaurant. Restaurant also rotates so if you make some time for longer dinner, you will get a wonderful view of Tampere city and both lakes that surround Tampere, Lake Näsijärvi and Lake Pyhäjärvi.”

“ Amusement park, farm style amusement park, aquarium, planetarium, observation tower. The observation tower restaurant is by the way one of the best in Tampere. Not the cheapest one, but worth going definitely. Especially in the evening. The restaurant rotates, so if you take your time with dinner, you will get a stunning full view of Tampere and the both lakes.”

“If you decide to go for a stroll in Pispala (which is great!) a good spot to stop is this lovely cafe in Pispala. It's a small place, and especially Sunday brunch is very popular, so make a booking beforehand.”

“Kauppahalli is over 100 years old indoor market where local producers sell their products. There is large selection of different shops, cafes and restaurants but most importantly the unique atmosphere is worth checking out. It feels like you have stepped back in time, in a good way, once you enter in the hall. My favorite restaurant Neljä Vuodenaikaa is at the end of the hall.”

“You might have been in a sauna before, but you really haven't experienced a proper Finnish sauna if you don't visit Rajaportti, the longest running public sauna in Finland. It might be an extreme or pleasant experience, depending on what kind of locals you end up to the sauna with. For first timers lower seats are highly recommended. More info:”
