Easy to find, cheap entrance, and a good view over the Hanko area. Up at the viewing level one should wear something that a wind cannot penetrate.

Didn't expect to see such lovely view before coming. The lift spent 2€ per person and it is 100% worth. The view of the coast we saw from the top of the tower was one of our best memory during this trip.

Lovely views, a bit of a wait to get to the lift. But well worth the 2€ charge to see all across the city of Hanko.

It is not too special in my mind so it isnt a must to go. The tower only opens from 1pm. Dont go too early or you cannot climb up.

Had a quick visit with the kids. Would have stayed longer but it was a very windy day.. Great views and friendly staff. Was fun to spot boats with the telescope.

Hanko is great light-coloured sands, beautiful blue sea and aromatic pine trees on the seashore. This is what I associate Hanko with! How about water tower? hmhm..well. its red and a bit interesting construction..
