This was a lovely walk over looking the city wall of Brasov. I can image the Saxons looking over the wall to the city wondering what was going on. then getting excited about being allowed in tax free one day a year! One path in flat for a long time once you have done the initial steps (maybe about a... More

We went up the mountain in the cable car, the views from the top are amazing! The trip up the mountain only takes about 2 minutes but the view just gets better as you near the top. You can see the whole city and beyond. We were surprised to find a wee bar/restaurant at the top but it was very... More

It is a very nice, not too hard hike up to Mount Tempa. The effort is worth the view. There is a funicular to go up and down, but it is much nicer to hike up and down. Not too steep.

Going up the mountain takes about 3 mins in a cable car. You may also hike, which would probably take an hour, depending on the route you pick. The sight from the top is breathtaking, even though the observation deck is a bit too small for that many tourists. And there's no sign in English that would direct you to... More

Seeing Brasov from up top is really quite cool and worth taking an hour out of your day to do. The cable car runs efficiently and is just a few Lei, so treat yourself.

Take the hike, instead of the gondola! The gondola is fine...we did that, too. But the hike is not as long or intimidating as it looks from the town square. We hiked on a sunny day, after three days of big rain. The trail was really slippery, so we didn't walk down. Otherwise, it was a nice way to spend... More

There is nothing special on the mountain, but it's an easy climb to the top and back. We used this as good time spent with the family during the weekend. I was pleasantly surprised to see less garbage on the way and a lot of garbage bins / bags at the top. While you are there, it's worth seeing the... More

Walked up there, which was ok given the fact that I wore slippers. The view is breathtaking! Had a drink at the cafe, but was told not to eat there, just FYI. There's also a cable car company that brings you up and down if you don't want to walk. I believe it was 16 lei.
