    One of the best theme parks in Finland! There are good amount of rides for children (100m and above in height) with good options for adults too and many options to eat with. We did not have time to visit the aquarium and the petting zoo but heard they are good too.
    Would suggest that you take the unlimited ride pass

    Had a wonderful lunch at Viikinsaari. Amazing service and wonderful dishes from local providers. It is very easy to get to the island from Laukontori Port on Silver Line vessels. Best of the trip is to reserve enough time to enjoy a lunch or dinner on the island. Truly value for money.

    This park is located next to the Tampere Hall, five minutes walk from the railway station.

    In the middle of the park is a big pond with a fountain. You can find ducks swimming here.

    There are also many other species of birds living in the cages by the pond.

    My favourite Lake for canoeing, swimming, diving and now Stand Up Paddling. Nice cafeteria run by the lake association and they rent boards cheap only 8€ / hour. I recommend on a beautiful day.

    High up on the hill by the Milavida mansion is a statue of a woman holding two children in despair. It commemorates the 1929 tragedy of Kuru, a ship full of passengers sunken in the high waves of Näsi lake with 138 lives lost. From below by the shore you can hear the music and laughter of people at the Särkänniemi amusement park.

    Leo's Leikkimaa in Lielahti is a brand new indoor playground. It's huge, probably three times the size of HopLop in Onkiniemi. As in HopLop adults and babies under 12 mo are free. However there were not that much activities for babies. For older kids - yes.

    This lovely park is centrally located on the shores of Tammerkoski rapids. The park got its current shape in the 1930s when a power plant dam was built.

    A festive promenade was built on the new shore strip, which is still accentuated today by arched lights, decorative plantings, and sculptural stones raised from the rapids.

    There are still a few trees left that were planted in the early 20th century. Today they are huge.

    At the northern end of the park is Aimo Tukiainen's sculpture Virvatulet from 1971. The sculpture is a monument to a Finnish soldier.

    Next to Hämeensilta bridge, you can find the Puisto restaurant. One of the five Scandic hotels in Tampere is named after this park.

    Hämeenpuisto is an important green area in the heart of Tampere, on both sides are the driveways of Hämeenpuisto Street. In the middle of the green belts is a walking and cycling path about 8-9 meters wide. On our visit, it had rained and the surface was quite muddy.

    This esplanade is about 1.3 kilometers long. It runs almost all the way across the isthmus from Näsijärvi in ​​the north to Pyhäjärvi in ​​the south. It is based on a town plan drawn up by architect CL Engel in 1830. You can find park areas at both ends of this esplanade, Näsinpuisto and Eteläpuisto.

    Pispalan harju ridge is a very interesting area with old wooden houses and Pyykkimettän puisto (Pyykkimettä Park) is the central point of it. Some people call it Pyynikkimettän puisto (Pyynikkimettä Park) but I think that Pyykkimettän puisto (Pyykkimettä Park) is the official name. It is because pyykki means laundry and earlier the laundry of the residents was washed and dried in the park.

    The main street is named Pispalanharju but remember to walk other streets, too. So you find a nice cafeteria (address Pipapankatu 30) and an interesting pub-restaurant (address Pispalan valtatie 23). There are nice stairs between small streets. We walked as far as the historical Pispalan Uittotunneli tunnel and Uittotunnelin Kahvila lakeside cafeteria (read separate Tripadvisor reviews).

    In the park you find a playground, an excellent lookout point and nice sitting places. This is one of the best selfie places and perhaps the most Instagrammable place in Tampere.
