At the beginning of the 19th century Viikinsaari island was
owned by Pirkkala Nuoliala village’s Nikkilä farm and
it was called Kaidesaari island. The story tells that the widowed
matron known as too fond of the bottle sold the island to the owner
of Viikki manor for the price of a jug of liquor. As she was finishing
the “sale” she said “There goes Kaidesaari island”.
Since the island became a part of Viikki manor it was named Viikinsaari
Viikinsaari island’s restaurant was designed by an architect
Lambert Petterson and built in 1900 after the 1st and 2nd restaurant
buildings had been destroyed in fires. One of the oldest restaurants
in Tampere, 240 seated, good quality summer restaurant Viikinsaari
