Best reasons to visit Tampere in a nutshell
There's plenty of things to do in the Tampere region year-round. Uncover Tampere's rich heritage of industrialization by observing the charming old red brick industrial buildings and impressive architecture. Or discover the city of innovation and technology by exploring how rolls of cotton have turned into lines of code at the museum Vapriikki, next to the Tammerkoski rapids.
While you are at it, enjoy a bite of Finnish cuisine by tasting the locally produced black sausage ("mustamakkara" in Finnish) with lingonberry sauce and the world’s best doughnuts in Pyynikki. Take in the stunning views of Näsijärvi and Pyhäjärvi lakes from the Näsinneula Observation Tower, visit the world's only Moomin museum, or experience a rollercoaster ride in the amusement park Särkänniemi. Do not forget to embrace your inner Finn by enjoying a steam at one of the more than 50 local saunas in the sauna capital of the world. If you're a lover of the arts, visit one of the many museums in the region, like Sara Hilden Art Museum, or the Tampere Art Museum.
