Beautiful illuminations in the dark nights of Tampere

Horses on Hämeenkatu

For the 49th time since 1965, the darkest nights in Tampere are illuminated by 165 figures in the city center, composed by 23.000 led bulbs. As the days are getting shorter while approaching December 21st, the lights bring a Christmasy atmosphere in the second largest city in Finland after Greater Helsinki. The lights are visible from the railway station to Finlayson and to the church park of Pyyniki. The illuminations are visible daily from 4:30 to 10:30pm until January 11th, 2015. During Friday and Saturday nights, lights are up until 5am. The Christmas market is open from December 5th to December 22nd on Keskustori.
