Playing a tourist in Tampere

What to do with a French monkey who has already seen Finland more than you? Well, I found out that she hasn’t been in Tampere and after I found cheap bus tickets  for us, we were ready to go.


1. Keskustori

WHAAT? I’m not used to see any markets during the weekdays so I was a bit surprised to see Tampere’s market square full of people, stalls, live music, an open-air flea market..

We had to have our brunch there. For the dessert, I convinced the French to taste Finnish traditional market delicacy – Viineri! 2,50€ for Viineri size of my head wasn’t bad at all.


2. Vapriikki – Mineral museum, The Finnish Ice Hockey museum, The Natural History museum, The Shoe museum and many more.. This museum centre won’t let anyone down, especially students who get the entrance for 4€. For adults it was 10€, which is still not bad at all.


3. Pyynikki

For Finnish doughnuts – the place to be. After coming back from the observation tower, you can reward yourself with one of the most famous doughnuts in Finland. Fee for the tower 2€, a doughnut 2€ (or 1,90?)


Basically, everything you MUSt see is in walking distance. One way by bus is 2,60€ and a 24hr ticket is only 6,00€. If you happened to have good weather, going by bike can be al


Special thanks for the tourist office, who helped and gave us a bunch of maps and brochures!
