Take a selfie!

To make the best of your visit to Tampere also on social media, here are some tips on the best places to snap a Tampere-selfie! Remember to use hashtag #visittampere.

Me and the Tammerkoski rapids

Walk to Satakunnansilta bridge to take a picture of the rapids upstream, ie in the direction of Finlayson and Tampella. Walk from it to Patosilta bridge and take a picture of the rapids with the legendary Hotel Ilves and Tako factory chimney in the background. Walk to the other end of Koskipuisto in front of the restaurant Puisto. Arrange the rapids, the industrial buildings and the surrounding park behind you and take a selfie.

Me and the Näsinneula observation tower

Näsinneula is the best known landmark in Tampere and the second highest observation tower in the Nordic Countries (168 metres). A distraction-free selfie is most likely taken behind the tower, where you can also spot the Sara Hildén art museum. Stand by the concrete tower, place your head in a good position and take a selfie!

Me and the Näsinneula tower shot from the Pyynikki observation tower

The Pyynikki observation tower is located on top of the world’s highest gravel ridge. Climb the stairs or take the elevator up to the observation deck of the 26-metre tower and take a selfie with the lake Näsijärvi and Näsinneula tower behind you. A doughnut selfie at the cafeteria downstairs makes the visit perfect.

Me and the houses of Pispala district

Pispala is a breathtaking part of the city all year round. Head to the Pyykkimettä park on top of the ridge, by the Pispalanharju street, or position yourself on top of the Pispala stairs starting from the highest point of the ridge down to the lakeside. Make sure to get both the colourful houses and the glimmering lake behind you, and snap the ultimate Tampere selfie!

Me and the Old Infectious Disease Hospital in Pyynikki

Tampere’s Pyynikki Hospital, formerly also known as the Old Infectious Disease Hospital, operated in the block between Papinkatu and Koulukatu until 1985. Visit the site for a closer look and take a selfie with the wonderful graffiti.

Me and the Moomintroll

The world’s only Moomin Museum is situated in Tampere Hall. You can also find an international Moomin reading library and a gift shop to decorate your very own Moomin selfie. The famous little statue of Moomintroll is located in Sorsapuisto park, next to Tampere Hall entrance.

Me and Mustalahti harbor

On the shore of Lake Näsijärvi, next to Särkänniemi, Mustalahti harbour is located. the most important red poles found under the train track are super nice as a background for pictures.

Me and the tower hotel

The Solo Sokos Hotel Torni Tampere is Finland’s tallest hotel. Snap a selfie with the Tampere landscape behind you at the Moro Sky Bar, situated on the top floor of the hotel. If you want to have the hotel in the photo with you, head to the railway station track number 5. Strike a pose and take a selfie!

Me and Ratina

From the window of Restaurant Periscope you can take a picture in the direction of Ratina, Lake Pyhäjärvi and Laukontori. You get to combine two things: good food and good selfies! In summer, the sunny terrace serves selfie takers even better.
