We took the cable car to get to the top of Mount Tampa. The car ride itself was very squishy, and not all that exciting. When we got to the top, there wasn't really a look out point or any signs to direct you where to walk next. There was also no bathrooms or places to buy water or food.... More

Quic and nice ride with the cable car to the top of the mountain. The view over Brasov is great, and it was fun to go to the back of the big Brasov sign. The restaurant wasnt very nice though.

It is not a difficult one hour hike but after climbing the mountain to its highest look out point it certainly helps the hotel maps make more sense when it all unfolds below.

Beautiful views, well worth the 16 lei return ticket on the cable car! I especially liked the BRASOV sign written in the style of the HOLLYWOOD sign.

Unfortunately there's not much of a sign ti guide tourists to the cable car station, and therefore you need to ask around not not much ppl spk english! Surprisingly the... More

Nice mountain with beautiful view of the city. There is more difficult and an easier, but longer path going uphill. It's also suitable for jogging. Something one should not miss when visiting Brasov.

We hiked up rather than taking the cable car and it was well worth it. Different paths along the way and easy to get a little lost. Maybe I would take the car up and hike down next time. Great view from the top.

I was lazy and took the ropeway. :) But even with the ropeway, there is some hiking to do at the top of the mountain so be sure to wear proper footwear. The view at the top of the mountain with the city and valley below was amazing. I still to this day, despite coming here 8 years ago use... More

Easy to get there, an amazing view on Brasov, Poiana and surroundings. Breathtaking. There are also people selling forest fruits in small baskets handmade.

Wonderful view from the top. I think the path should be paved for better access as it was very muddy that day
