Open only in summer months

This striking-looking tower completed in 1920 was originally built as a water tower.

The top of the Art Nouveau and Classicism style tower is about 72 meters above sea level.

If you want to visit inside the tower, check the opening times beforehand.

Old lookout tower with nice view over the city and the sea
Jul 2018 • Couples
We visited the lookout tower on sunny and hot summer day. You can really see far if you climb up 139 stairs! It costs only 2 euros. It is interesting to know that during the second world war mostly women (”Lotta”) were working in the tower as their duty was air survellaince. The city of Kotka sufferd major bombing during the war.

Rude service
Jul 2017
A beautifull place to visit, and it can be recommended to take a walk around The tower, but the service inside the tower was very unpolite and rude to us, and it made us walk away immidiately.

Huikeat näkymät yli Kotkan! Great view over Kotka!

Pienellä rappujen kapuamisella uskomattomat näköalat palkitsevat vaivan. Kesken kiipeämisen voi pysähtyä katsomaan taidetta kahdessa tilassa.
The magnificent view that opens from the tower rewards the little effort of climbing the stairs. On the way up, you can check interesting art in two different spaces.

A great view

When you climb a hill, where the tower is situated, you will see a great view on the town, water. Rocks under your feet. A great Tower, but I haven't climbed it - it was not opened - I was early in the morning.

Excellent Italian food.. Especially pasta and cakes are recommended. You can get good view to the surroundings from the top of the tower.

Don't miss this one!

This is somewhere definitely to be visited. You can see the whole of town from the towertop as well as out miles to sea. The climb's a bit dreadful for an old smoker like me but it was worth it. The view is truly fantastic.

Also there's an art gallery to visit here and a cafe in the tower.

I think this is only open in the summer, but I'm not sure.
