Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

    The staff were very friendly and the prices are reasonable. The donuts are delicious, kind of spiced (pepper or cardamom maybe?) and are perfect for a cold day. They have vegan donuts and oat milk for coffee. The thing that lets it down for me is that it could very easily be wheelchair accessible if they added a ramp as there is an elevator up to the viewing tower.

    A great compilation of museums under one roof. Tons of interactive exposition, so it is a fun place for kids and adults.

    So I do not know a lot about the moomin, but the atmosphere and how the rooms look like is great. It's great for children, there is a workshop too, where you can make your own little creatures. It is open from 12-16, unfortunately this doesn't say anywhere outside the museum, me and my daughter waited one hour that it opens. So this is valueable to know if you are interested in crafting little things.

    Lot's of sights to see from the beach. I saw a guy fishing there when walking by. There's also a place to throw away cremation ashes.

    Had a wonderful lunch at Viikinsaari. Amazing service and wonderful dishes from local providers. It is very easy to get to the island from Laukontori Port on Silver Line vessels. Best of the trip is to reserve enough time to enjoy a lunch or dinner on the island. Truly value for money.

    This is a gem of modern architecture at its best. It is by one of Finland's leading architectural couples. In a land where modern architecture thrives, this is one of the best examples.

    This museum is located in Hervanta, in the same premises as the Police University College. The museum is easily accessed from the city center with the new tram (line 3).

    The museum offers information about the Finnish police services throughout the time.

    In addition to the permanent exhibition, the museum features changing special exhibitions. On our visit, it was 'The colored truth – Art crime in Finland'.

    The entrance is free. The museum is suitable for all ages.

    Tampere Hall is located opposite the main building of the University of Tampere near the railway station. It was completed in 1990. The main auditorium has over 1,700 seats.

    The Tampere Opera and the Tampere Philharmonic Orchestra are based there. You can find also the Moomin Museum here.

    There is a new Marriott Hotel connected to the building.

    Great former redbrick factories border the mainly restrained rapids connecting the two lakes surrounding Tampere. The bridge is the central part of the main street Hämeenkatu leading from the railway station to Pyynikki. This summer it is also a big construction site as the new tramline is still under way.
