It's possible to either hike to the top from the weavers bastion following the red triangles or take the cable car to peak which is 3000 ft. It was a hot day when we did it and we took the cable car both ways. There are number of hiking routes available at top wiith several viewing platforms.

The cable car here is very efficient and fast. You get in about 2 minutes to the top of mount Tampa. The view from the top is beautiful and you can also take a short walk and reach the holywood-style Brasov letters on the mountain.

I did this hike the day I had to leave Brasov, so I was a bit rushed. It was a beautiful hike and pretty easy as well. Due to time constraints, I ended up taking the cable care down. The top of Mount Tampa offers spectacular views of the city. The forest is very quiet and peaceful to hike through.

Of all historic cities I've been in Europe Braşov is arguably the most impressive, due to it's mountain surrounding the old town. So after exploring every corner of the old town, it's worth seeing it from the mountain. You can either take a cable car or hike in the woods (the trail to the left of the cable car is... More

When you get to the top of Mount Tampa on the cable car there is a restaurant/ cafe right there. Here you can sit either indoors or outdoors and admire the wonderful views from the top of the mountain. A short walk along a stony path and you can stand behind the large Brasov sign and view the town below... More

Mount Tampa is not actually a mountain but I think it is a hill situated near the city, you can see it from every angle and Brasov is one of the top attractions of the city. It can be climbed on top but it is a bit 'difficult and tiring easily or using the cable car. Even a short walk... More

Great views of Brasov and cable car is good value. There isn't much to do at the top and the path is very uneven. As like the rest of Romania there is a real litter problem!

Not that much to hike, a great way to get in some exercise after a long week. The sights are wonderful as soon as you get away from the restaurant area that is very noisy and full of smoke.
