Tampere Saunas

Tampere visitors have so much to choose from when it comes to saunas in the sauna capital of the world

Is there a gay sauna in Tampere?

No, Tampere does not have a dedicated gay sauna. Though you won't find a sexually oriented "gay sauna" here, the Sauna Capital fully welcomes all to its famous bathing culture. With close to 60 public saunas across the city, diversity and community are baked right in. Bathhouses are for relaxation, health and rejuvenation only. Ultimately, while a specifically gay bathhouse is not on the map, Tampere makes sure its endless sauna options embrace everyone appropriately. After all, unwinding Finnish style is a human right in this town! When the Sauna Capital invites the world to its hallowed halls of steam, absolutely everyone belongs - to relax.
