Can You Drink Tap Water in Tampere?
Yes, tap water is drinkable.
Tap Safe includes data from many publicly available sources, including the WHO (World Health Organization), CDC (Center for Disease Control), and user submitted databases, but unfortunately there's not enough data about Tampere.
To see user submitted ratings of the water quality for Finland, see the "User Submitted Ratings" box on this page.
Quality-wise there are no really avoidable restaurants in the city either; some kebab joints can be a little bit disappointing, but at least the Finnish hygiene laws make sure that there's nothing wrong with the food per se. Tap water is safe to drink anywhere in Tampere (and in Finland).

The above data is comprised of subjective, user submitted opinions about the water quality and pollution in Tampere, measured on a scale from 0% (lowest) to 100% (highest).
Always take extra precautions, the water may be safe to drink when it leaves the sewage treatment plant but it may pick up pollutants during its way to your tap. We advise that you ask locals or hotel staff about the water quality. Also, note that different cities have different water mineral contents.
