Time to go hunting! Poke Stops take players to known – and also to less known – landmarks all over the world. To make the most of your trip to Tampere we gathered the most important Poke Stops in Tampere city centre to one article.

Keskustori Central Square is always a good place to start. Go west or east, north or south. Tampere is full of Poke Stops, Pokemon Go -players and Pokemons. On your way to east over the Hämeensilta bridge you’ll find the most popular Poke Stops in the city centre in the Pikku Kakkonen playground. On the other side of the bridge is the Finnish Maiden statue which is also a Poke Stop.

Poke Stops at Pikku Kakkonen playground are inside the playground but you can get to them going around the park – you don’t have to go in disturbing kids’ play. Playground has three Poke Stops – and they sure do lure in Pokemons! From Koskipuisto park you also find a memorial statue that is a Poke Stop.

Head North. Grand Hotel Tammer is one Poke Stop and on your way there stop by Tammerinpuisto park’s Poke Stop. While you continue West you get to Satakunnansilta bridge. Careful here, there are many cars in this crossroads! After going over the bridge you get to Finlayson main gate – enter here to Finlayson’s old factory area, one of the main sites in Tampere. Make sure to look around and enjoy the red bricks while you walk to Finlayson Palace Poke Stops, Finlayson church and Tallipiha Stable Yards Poke Stops. All together you will find many Poke Stops just from these locations.

From Tallipiha’s west gate (Poke Stop) continue uphill to Milavida palace. After spinning Milavida Poke Stop you can continue your way deeper into the park, and near park stage you find a Poke Gym. Park has more Poke Stops as well, so follow those to the big fountain at the North end of Hämeenpuisto park. From here head south and on your way collect Pikkupalatsi, Metso library and stop for a battle at Alexander Church Poke Gym. When you go east you end up back at Central Square. On your way why not see the plaque of Finland’s first radio station (Poke Stop)!

Särkänniemi amusement park area is open almost fully all year long. Särkänniemi has 24 Poke Stops! Four of these are in the Doghill Fairytale Farm area and another four in the surroundings of Sara Hildén Art Museum. Near the MotoGee ride is a sculptor park with a Poke Gym. Näsinneula Observation Tower Poke Stop is the most popular Poke Stop, but for example you can also find a few Poke Stops in Pelitori Game Market.

Other good Poke Stops and landmarks are Ratina bridge (next to the Stadium), Eteläpuisto Park, Tampere Cathedral, Pyynikki cemetery (next to Alexander Church), Tampere Art Museum, Kirjastonpuisto park and Market Hall. If you want to see more than just the city centre – or have time to walk around and look for Pokemons – head east towards Tammela and Kaleva! Emil Aaltonen playground, Kaleva Church and Ilvespuisto park have Poke Stops and Gyms. From Sorsapuisto park you will find multiple Poke Stops! Hatanpää Arboretum also has many gyms and stops, so that’s also worth checking out.
