9. Kahilanniemi Golf Court + Pappilanniemi Nature Trail

New landscapes by the golf course

The grounds of the Kahilanniemi golf court reach the Pappilanlahti water area. The main entrance to the courts of Viipurin Golf is located in Kahilanniementie, but the route of this summer destination passes the courts via Imatrantie to Julinintie. This walking route by the golf court goes towards the Pappilaniemi nature trail, and has views also to Lake Saimaa.

The Pappilanniemi area is a nature reserve, which’s trail is about 2 km long.
From the Eastern side of Pappilanniemi that is closer to the center, it is possible to see even towards the Fortress. There is not an exact address to this viewpoint, but when trail is walked clockwise, it is easy to see the view over Saimaa and the center of Lappeenranta behind the trees.


The route to this viewpoint diverges a little form the main trail, but is easy to find, since the main trail is in sight. The center of Lappeenranta can be seen from a new perspective, which makes the scenery very unique.


The green nature of Pappilanniemi, and the closeness of Lake Saimaa make you feel refreshed, and if wanted, it is recommended to continue to the last destination of the City tour: the Luukkaansalmi Bridge.


Address: Julinintie – Isännöitsijäntie, distance from center 4,5 km

There are some hills in the Pappilanniemi trail.
