It is worth to visit the place as it's a perfect possibility to see the city and surroundings from the bird's sight. But I'd recommend to go there by car.

I went to the tower by car on a sunny day. The entrance was 6euro for an adult (4euro for a student) but well worth it. The view is amazing and you can walk all round.

The views from Puijo Tower are fabulous and typify the landscape of Finland, its lakes and forests. Would be wonderful to view ski jumping from there in the winter, as well as summer practice times.

Puijo area is great! Hiking trails and quite a few steps, orienteering, mountain biking, picking berries and mushroom and playing at a world class disc golf course. In the summer you can find small historical Konttila house with sheep and chicken running around the yard...More

Even it's a "small place", the view was worthy. It was breathtaking to see Kuopio from above during the winter. I was amazed by the winter (I had never seen the snow before Kuopio), and I almost fell in tears. Such a beautiful city. There...More

The view from the top of Puijo tower is spectacular! Puijo is only 3km from the Kuopio marketplace, but we were adviced not to walk there, because of heavy climbing to the top of the hill. So we took a taxi, which cost 11 €....More

We were on a Webjet tour and our brilliant guide, Javier, organized a viewing for 9.00am. Opening hours are usually 11.00am. The views as with most towers were spectacular . Lots of nature, trees and lakes. A must do if in Kupio

Wonderful views over the city. Restaurant & cafe also if you need them, along with a souvenir shop. Elevator takes you up and down, enjoy the views with dozens of lakes!

From the tower you can see quite far. Puijo is not the highest hill in Savonia, but one on the highest in the province. There is also a nice restaurant and a souvenir shop in the tower. It costs couple of euros to get in...More

Situated on the Puijo tower on top of a hill this restaurant offers one of the most exotic vistas compared to anything in Europe. And the restaurant platform is turning! Lakes and forests wary with the sight of sprawling archipelago city of Kuopio. The surprise...More
