    Best Outdoor Activity and Recreation Area
    We have been to Hämeenlinna many times and mostly our visit was limited to Häme castle and centre. But our friends (who had moved here) took us around this area and that is when we realized that there is more in Hämeenlinna than just the castle. We were so surprised that we planned our next visit and stayed in a hotel just to explore the city and surrounding region. This regions has something to offer to people of all ages and preference. The options include golf course, nature trail, forests, lake, parks, adventure, observation tower, boat riding and so on. The area can be easily explored by car or bicycle.

    This is how I imagine heaven would look!
    I had ventured through the woods and up to this magnificent sight around 8.30am after I had eaten breakfast. I am so happy I did at this time as I was all alone. The walk there was lovely, peaceful and pretty. Very relaxing. When I got to the top the tower was under some maintenance but that wasn't an issue as what I came to see was still available. I was so wowed in person. Its great on pics but epic in person. Made me feel so happy, so alive. Its really hard to explain but I'm sure many others will feel it too! If you're in the area and don't see this....it will be a huge regret.

    Amazing
    Love it. Amazing place for a walk in the woods with lots of hidden things to find. Went on a family walk for a few hours in the sun and it was much more than we expected. Highly recommended. Will go again.

1,5 km from Hotel Aulanko, so brisk outdoor activity. You can also Drive to the top if wanted. Two mystical and beautiful water areas on the way up.
Nice Café on the top.
Must see!!!

Very nice outdoor area, we went cross country skiing there, and the tracks were in good condition, and marked very well. Not too many people around, so good skiing in nice surroundings.

I can not count how often we have been here and the beautiful scenery never ceases to amaze me. There are a lot of hiking trails, the bear cave, the viewing tower and a little coffee shop. It is really beautiful in the summer and all year around, but I enjoy it most in the autumn.

Had a nice peaceful walk. Trails could be marked a bit better but overall if you want to retreat into nature this is a nice place to go

We've now visited Aulanko both in winter and in summer, and the scenery is absolutely beautiful. During our summer visit, the tower was also open for even better views from higher up.
