You can pay to take the 3mins cable car to the top. After that you'll have to walk a bit till you past the Brasov sign (similar to the Hollywood sign) before reaching a huge clearing with a panoramic view of the city. Bring some beers or set up a picnic, because this view is simply breath-taking. We decided to... More

We hiked up and took the cable car down. The hike took about an hour and offered some nice views of the town. Once at the top, we walked to the Brasov "Hollywood" sign to take in the view and shoot photos. The restaurants at the top of the mountain didn't seem to be anything special (we decided not to...

We walked up and down the mountain in November (Autumn), starting near the cable car station. Trails are well-marked and easy to follow. The forest is beautiful, and there's a chance of seeing some wildlife (just a deer and a squirrel for us - the bears had all gone to bed already! The lazy buggers - it's really not that... More

I can't recommend climbing this mountain enough. Not only is it a very pleasant climb to the top, it is also a very serene area with hardly anybody around. The people I've met there all greeted me, something I honestly didn't expect from a city. From the top you have a stunning view of the city, and if you continue... More

The hill just near the city center is a great place for quick escapes from the city. Trail runners or hiking tourists are welcome to try the paths of Tampa. The view from above worst a visit.

A cable car ride followed by a short walk over uneven ground and you find yourself with stunning views over Brasov. A must if the weather is good, and it won't take much of a chunk out of your day.

We took the cable car up to the top and then took a short walk to the Brasov sign with viewing platform next to it - a great way to see the city. The cable cars are really frequent and definitely worth it.

You can took the cable car up and down or just walk to the top of the mountain. There are great views of the surrounding area and Brasov city from the top. Once you reach the top - there is a restaurant and a separate small bar.
