Bus Station
“ 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.”

“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.”

“Rajaportin sauna is Finland's oldest working public sauna. The sauna was founded in 1906 in Pispala in Tampere. When you enter Rajaportin sauna, it's like entering a different world. There is a small cafe you can buy something to drink while cooling off from the hot löyly.”
