Hämeensilta bridge in the heart of Tampere. The view towards Tammerkoski is part of Finnish national heritage - don't miss it when visiting Tampere. The bridge itself is just a regular bridge. is's the location and views that make this a special place.

Hämeensilta (bridge) provides national scenery to Tammerkoski Rapids between lakes Pyhäjärvi and Näsijärvi

Hämeensilta bridge has some pretty statues. However, the views over the old industrial buildings built around the Tammerkoski rapids are the main attraction. The bridge serves as a focal point for a walk either by the rapids and/or to the central market square (Keskustori).

Hameensilta is a bridge over the rapids of Tampere. It has a great view to the waterfalls and it's nice to look into dark powerful waters.

Lovely views from the bridge over the river that connects two huge lakes. There are four statues on the bridge, the taxman, the hunter, the merchant and the maid of Finland and it is considered lucky to rub the toe of the taxman.

I just loved to stare at the swirling dark water flowing from the waterfalls, reflecting the tall industrial buildings of red bricks, so old and charming. A great entrance to the main square of Tampere.

In Tampere my favorite place to stop and look around, especially at night, is the Hämeensilta, the wide bridge over the Tammer, which connects the two parts of the city's main street Hämeenkatu, just below the Tammerkoski rapids. From here one can experience the aesthetics...More

This spot is super nice to stand at when it is a Summer night or a late evening in Winter. The city lights up the lights and the river is beautiful. One of the best eye candies in Tampere if you are there at the...More
