Tampere is a state of mind. It is something that resides within all of us and is deeply rooted in the ridges of the landscape. Here, by the banks of the Tammerkoski rapids, ideas have always been born. They have turned into lines of work – and even entire communities. Whenever a set of machines has fallen silent, new thoughts have soon filled that space. Rolls of cloth have changed into lines of code and unforgettable experiences. A promise of things to come has been planted into the rough brick walls and the rows of windows rise ever higher. The city skyline may change, but you can always find that familiar feeling in Tampere.
This is home.
