City of FIM-2014 Welcome to Tampere!
Tampere is about 170 km from both ports of Helsinki and Turku. If you travel by ferry from Germany, Poland or Estonia, you arrive at Helsinki and if you drive through Sweden, you arrive at Turku via Stockholm. With a population of well over 200.000, Tampere is the largest inland city in the Nordic countries. Founded in 1779 around the banks of Tammerkoski Rapids, Tampere evolved into Finland’s most highly industrialised locality during the 19th century. Thanks to new town planning, former industrial areas such as Finlayson and Tampella are alive again:cafés, restaurants, shops, cinemas, museums and galleries have found locations there. There is a lot to see in Tampere: Original Finnish architecture, breathtaking lake scenery, magnificent glacial ridges, beautiful parks and lush forests next to the city centre - what could be better than a lake cruise on a beautiful summers day?
Tampere Camping Härmälä offers you cosy options for accommodation. The popular camping site is located on the shore of Lake Pyhäjärvi, approx. 4 km from the centre of Tampere. You can choose whether to spend the night in your own tent or in a camping cabin. Camping area and its immediate environs provide plenty of activities and holiday destinations for visitors of all ages. In camping site you can relax in lakeside sauna, fishing on the lake or playing minigolf or other games. There is also a pizzeria/ cafeteria and a small summer season store and wide range of recreational activities available at the site.
