I walked up this mountain three times. Each time was better than the last. You can take a cable car, but if you're in any shape at all, you won't mind the 45 minute walk up. The view is so worth it!

After getting the cable car, you walk for 10 minutes to the top of the hill. Great Views.Friendly locals, willing to take a photograph. Locals sell fresh raspberries.

The view from Mount Tampa of Brasov is an absolute must while in town. You can either hike up or take the lift (which is what we did).

Took the cable car to the top of the mountain. Excellent views of the city and the surrounding country. Definitely worth it.

The cable car was closed for repair when I visited. Not sure when it opens again. I have visited in the past and loved the ride to the top and the walk to the BRASOV sign. Really cool.

We hiked up (and down) the red triangle trail that begins immediately to the left of the telecabina station (stairs at the left). At the top, turn right to walk to the BRASOV sign for fantastic views. (Belevedere = beautiful sight). Hike takes about 60 minutes and we saw bird life and squirrels.

There is a nice, if steep, hike through the woods to the top that many locals take. It is a beautiful hike but I have never seen so many ticks in my life. The big ones drop out of the trees and the tiny ones crawl up your legs. About every 5 minutes we would stop and pull 1-2 ticks... More

This was a lovely way to spend an afternoon. A little hike to get to the cable car, then another little hike to get to the top with its unrivaled view of Brasov below. If you go right from the trail, you will go behind the Brasov sign. Keep straight and you will get to the summit. There is a... More
