Fabulous views of the city of Brasov and surrounding countryside.

Take the cable car (16 lei return) up to the top. Good catering facilities up there but expensive so take your own food and drinks. On leaving the cable car, take a 10 minute walk... read more

On leaving the cable car, take a 10 minute walk along the ridge to the right and stand beside the giant Brasov sign to see the old town laid out below you. There is s... More

Got the cable car to the top of Mount Tampa. Reasonably priced cable car for the 2min 20s journey with amazing views across Brasov (albeit terrifyingly high). There is a cafe at the top of the mountain for a stop before trekking the hours trip down.

Tampa is one of Brasov's icons. It's just like LA's Hollywood sign. From above, you're seeing the whole city which can be very beautiful during the winter. Definitely a place to visit in Brasov.

You can get the cable car up the mountain or just walk it, either way its pretty cool getting up behind the giant Brasov sign and taking a glance at the town below, its a nice walk up through the mountain forest if you like to just go for a walk. Just be careful as there are no railings next... More

To get here, you could use cable car or hike but I prefer hike because it just take 1 hour to the top, and all your effort will be worth it once you are on the top. You could see Brasov from here its like you have Brasov in your eyes. Brasov looks very beautiful. Its better in the morning... More

We waited until a clear day to go up and see the beautiful views of Brasov from the adjacent Tampa mountain. You can walk if you're into that sort of thing, but we grabbed a cable car both ways. The views were brilliant and we were blessed with a really warm day, despite the time of year. I don't think... More

Climbed Tampa for the hundred time! I always find it attractive, peaceful, interesting. I went together with my son and he enjoyed the trip very much. We'll do it again on the springs

When staying in Brasov for the night, wake up early and take a short hike up Mount Tampa. It's fun to see a different view of the Brasov sign and to take photos from the viewing platform (plus it's free!). Often times, you will find someone selling berries up top. Another option would be taking a bottle of wine to... More

After visiting Poiana Brasov sky station, you can stop 2 minutes in the mount tampa to appreciatte the wonderful Brasov view. In the end of the afternoon and in the winter time the view is better.

We enjoyed a day off from sightseeing with a stroll on the Tampa mountain. There is a cable car for the less adventurous. I woulds recommend taking a picnic lunch and a rain coat just to be sure.
