What is the best time to travel to Tampere?

Spring and summer are the best seasons to travel to Tampere because the city is at its finest and liveliest. The city is full of events and the sun is shining from dawn till dusk. However, Finland and Tampere are worth seeing at any time of the year. In the winter you can admire the Christmas lights and the snowy scenery or visit a traditional Finnish Christmas fair. We advise you to book your experiences beforehand regardless of the season.

Instagrammable Pispala - colourful houses and lake sceneries

I loved the tour! This was my first trip to Tampere, and this was a lovely way to start the day. Beautiful area and nice way of getting to know the atmosphere and scenery in Pispala. I also got nice tips and information for the rest of the day in Tampere. Heli managed to take nice pictures even though I am not used to be in the front of the camera. I do recommend this tour 😍 Thank you so much Heli!

Olipa mukava kokemus, kiitos! ❤️ Jalkapohjissa jälkeenpäin kiva tunne - niin kiva, että täytyy mennä toistekin.

Tampere 1918 - The Decisive Battle

Käytiin oman perheen kanssa kierroksella, joten se oli hyvä aktiviteetti myös korona ajalle. Reitti oli sopivan mittainen ja kierteli kivasti ympäri Tampereen keskustaa. Mika kertoi tapahtumista mielenkiintoisia yksityiskohtia ja tehosti kierrosta kuvilla ja kartoilla, joita hänellä oli mukana. Suosittelen kaikille Tampereen historiasta kiinnostuneille. We took the tour with our own family so it was safe even in korona time. The route wasn´t too long and it went around Tampere in beautiful and interesting areas. Mika told a lot of detailed stories about the events and had pictures and maps to make it even more interesting. A good tour to everyone who is interested in Tampere´s history and places.
