The best way to reach it is by taking any of the busses labeled Pyynikkintori and riding them to the last station.
Tampere was the heart of Finland's industry, and Pispala started off as a workers quarter full of wooden houses that families built themselves. Each one of these bright-colored wooden buildings gives us a chance to glimpse at the old days of hard work and family love. They offer a stark contrast to most of modern gray architecture that most of Tampere seams to consist of. Surrounded by the forest and situated on Pyynikki ridge, they offer a chance for relaxation and contemplation.
And when you finally reach the top of the hill, don't forget to visit Pyynikkin Tower, one of Tampere's land marks.
