Tampere is growing at a fast pace and new residential areas appear in the blink of an eye. The new area of Tampella by the lake Näsijärvi offers several beautiful spots for the outdoor pastime for everyone. The spot has become a sort of a communal terrace with people stopping by on their walk along the lake. Come here to enjoy the sunset sitting comfortably at the wooden deck with benches and picnic tables. At a good weather, stunning lake views will provide you with some eye candy. The location is perfectly instagrammable, and there is room for everyone, since in the warm spring and summer days the rocks on the lakeshore serve as seats (beware of hungry seagulls when having a picnic here).
Continue your way along the nice embankment that has been formed along the lake, all the way to the Sräkänniemi amusement park: you’ll find there more of the lake view benches. And check out the only channel of Tampere that was opened in the Tampella area in spring 2020. For me the channel with its embankment is another perfect picnic spot that brings a piece of Amsterdam feeling with a Scandinavian touch.
