Stopped here for a short visit in Hanko. It was a bit difficult to find the opening times online, but we were lucky that the place was open. When entering the building you must take a lift to the top, then pay the 2 euro...More

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.

Nice views over the Hanko city and surrounding archipelago. Great photo ops! Small elevator, but feels fast and safe. Small fee, and well wort it.

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..

Centrally located water tower next to a church offers the best views over the city. Affordable 2 eur entrance fee. Good starting point.

Hanko Water Tower is a huge tower in the middle of the town of Hanko. You can spot this monument from quite a far away and it is one of the best landmarks in Hanko. I'm not sure, but they may have "open for public"...More

A lift takes you up to the top of this water tower. The view up there is really breathtaking as you can see Hanko in 360 degrees from the sea to the buildings in the town. The only thing to observe is that the air...More
