Top 10 indoor activities for the whole family


The weather on your holiday isn’t perfect? Not to worry, because Tampere has more than one exciting indoor activity, for the whole family! We decided to make your holiday easier and gathered together a top 10 list.


1. Särkänniemi Amusement Park

Särkänniemi provides fun for the whole family, for the whole day! In the Aquarium, you can choose your own favourite from over 200 species of fish and aquatic animals that come from seas and lakes all around the world. In addition, you can make acquaintance with the finned creatures of Finnish waters. Also Näsinneula, Finland’s tallest building, is located in Särkänniemi.


2. Museums

There are many museums in Tampere for everyone and for all ages. For example the Moomin Museum is an excellent destination for the whole family to spend the whole day.  You can also spend time at the Finnish Museum of Games in Vapriikki hacking a pinball machine or playing other legendary electromechanical devices. If you are heading towards Sastamala, it is worth visiting the Pukstaavi – Museum of Finnish Book where a fairytale train passes through the landscapes of familiar children’s books. Currently, Pukstaavi’s changing “exhibition” is the Escape from the Museum escape room game, which is suitable for all ages. If you are heading to Sastamala, you must also visit the House of Mr. Clutterbuck. There you can explore the world of a character familiar from Mauri Kunnas’ books in various functional rooms. In addition, you can meet the wonderful sleepwalking Mr. Clutterbuck several times a day.


3. Wall climbing

Climbing is for everyone and for all ages! Irti Maasta climbing centre offers a safe environment for adrenaline filled activity and dizzy heights.


4. Room escape games

Room escape games are the most recent hit in group activities. Tampere already has many different companies offering the service – like Room Escape, Mysteeri Tampere and WayOut Tampere. Altogether they offer seven different “puzzles” (i.e. rooms) to solve. Time is running out and you need to open a lock using clues for number combination to get out.. Feeling the pressure yet?


5. Indoor minigolf

Entertainment Centre Crazy’s mini-golf has 16 lanes, all with different themes: rock’n’roll, wild west, mystic Egypt, junkyard, superheros… Crazy Golf also features curling.

Hohtogolf West Coast presents a new style of indoor mini-golf in Europe. Our purpose built mini-golf tracks with neon lights and other special effects produce a cool, fun and exciting environment to play in the dark, whether with a group of friends or on your own as a single player. The center comprises 15 amazing mini-golf courses, four of them in a so-called horror area, that will either make you laugh or scream depending of your age and state of mind.


6. Bowling and billiards

Space Bowling & Billiards is an entertainment oasis and a recreation centre. Space has 8 lanes for bowling and 13 billiards tables. Space is lit up with colourful lights and the music gets you to right mood for fun!


8. Trampolin Park

Book a time from Trampolin Park Wild for your family, friends, or just for you! Trampolin Park Wild has three different areas: a trampoline park with several different trampolines for jumping, tricks and games, an adventure park with more than 70 different adventure trails, and a climbing park with the highest climbing wall in Tampere with self-supporting equipment.


9. Laser games

Laser games – step into the future’s playground! Speed and adrenaline are not lost here, when you battle your friends on a city battle arena. Completely safe and suitable for nearly all ages. There are two places to try your skills at city war in Tampere: Megazone in Tullintori shopping centre and ZBase at the Finlayson area.


9. Spa

Willing to go further than Tampere? Spa Hotel Scandic Eden Nokia, 15 minute drive from Tampere to Nokia, is an all inclusive spa resort by a beautiful lake. Water slides, wave pools, hot tubs, waterfalls… This spa is worth leaving the city centre for!

Spa Hotel Holiday Club Tampereen Kylpylä is located in the central city of Tampere, in the Lapinniemi district by a beautiful lake Näsijärvi. The Spa hotel is built into a century-old cotton mill that has been renovated and modernised to meet the needs of spa guests.


10. Meet furry friends

Are you in need of a furry friend? The best medicine for that is to visit Finland’s first cat café, Cat Café Purnauskis, where you can meet and stroke many cats or if fluffy bunnies are more your thing then place to go is 3D Crush Café.
