Rauhaniemi Beach and Public Saunas
Built in 1929, the beach and the buildings retain almost their original appearance.
It is only a few kilometres from Central Square (Keskustori) to Rauhaniemi in the Lapinniemi district. Bus number 2 stops nearby and there is also a car park.
The kiosk is open during the summer months; opening times depend on the weather, generally from 10 am to 8 pm. Indoor seating is available upstairs with beautiful views of the lake.
Rauhaniemi Beach has two distinct parts. With its shallow water and playground equipment, the sheltered south side is perfect for children. The rocky north side opens up to Lake Näsijärvi, and the original two-metre, concrete diving tower is still in use.
There are two saunas in Rauhaniemi; a swimsuit is required.
The saunas are open all year round.
Opening times during the summer season (1 May to 30 September):
- weekdays 3 pm to 8 pm
- weekends 1 pm to 8 pm.
Opening times during the winter season (1 October to 30 April):
- Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday, Thursday 3 pm to 8 pm
- Friday 3 pm to 8.30 pm
- weekends 1 pm to 7.30 pm.
The saunas are also available for private hire.
Ice-swimming facilities have been organised at Rauhaniemi since 1956 by Tampere Workers' Swimming Club TaTU (Tampereen Työväen Uimarit).
