One of the nicest sites in Ilomantsi to visit when the weather is good. An old water tower converted into a bar. Views of the city, the lake, the churches and Russia can be seen on the 360 view. The place is in need of...some gender care though. There flaking paint on the surfaces, the wooden built verrander looks warn out, and it is incomplete, with parts of the open air tower uncovered. Inside, the lift is old yet the decor is comfy. The menu is basic, and it seems that they can make different kinds of croissants with salad as a lunch, otherwise offer only wines and drinks from their winery. There is the opportunity to try out their drinks in a taster season, and people are willing to queue up to have a drink and catch the views. Pricing is reasonable for the area and for what you get. Although I would hope they use their profits on making the place look a bit nicerMore

Our whole trip at Hermannin Viinitorni was really intriguing. To begin with, I recommend taking the elevator in order to see the various paintings on the wall on the way up. On the top of the tower, we had some locally produced white wine and...juice in a really friendly environment. The view to Ilomantsi and the surrounding nature was incredible, so it is good to utilize the visit for some great photo opportunities.More

Actually the Hermannin Viinitorni is more a Café than a restaurant. You can get snacks there and of course their wines. The view from the tower is stunning!

It's quite surprising to find such a place in ilomantsi. Winetower is humorous name for the place and the names of the drinks follow the pattern e.g. cosmopogostan.

A local winery Hermanni runs a bar on top of an old water tower. Views are magnificent. They have berry wines and also products from their distillery.

Absolutely stunning place. We only took coffee so I don't know anything about food or beverages or wine. Views are beautiful. You can see all the way to the Russia👍

This cafe and bar on top of the water tower serves coffee, fresh pastries and berry wines from the local winery. It is well worth a visit, both for the views and the wines.
