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.

Very close to the city centre there is a cable car taking tourists up to the Tampa height. It was nice to walk up and down (about 1 1/2 hours) , and the view of the city is stunning, only wish there was a restaurant or a cafe on top for some refreshments. at the bottom of the cable there... More

Take the cable car up, although you can walk up and down if you are up to it, for amazing views over the old town and surrounding countryside. Wear suitable shoes as health and safety has not made it up there yet which is not a bad thing just beware uneven paths and not many barriers. Follow the path along... More

Take the Tampa cable car (16 Romanian Leu) to the peak for the best view of the old town. You must climb the stairs to reach the cable car station.

Bought cable car tickets for return trip but after reaching the top and wandering around the snow, I decided to trek down. Very interesting experience, definitely for people who wants to have some alone time in the cold. The routes were well signed so it's unlikely you'll get lost. Visit it in winter!
