The view of the city was great and the travel by cable was fast. They serve food up there but, the infrastructure needs some attention and the littering needs to be adressed.

After you manage to find the spot where the cable car starts ( which can be a quest) you will really enjoy the ride. The cable car goes very oft - like 4 or 5 minutes intervals - and it takes about the same time to arrive on top. The ride is nice since you can admire the city. When... More

We took the cable car and went up the short ride to Mt Tampa expecting to see the sprawling view of Brasov and the mountains. Well in a way you do get that since you are up high but the" stage" is not quite what I have come accustom to in cable car station look out point. First it is... More

Take the cable car (16 lei return) up to the top. Good catering facilities up there but expensive so take your own food and drinks. On leaving the cable car, take a 10 minute walk along the ridge to the right and stand beside the giant Brasov sign to see the old town laid out below you. There is s... More

Got the cable car to the top of Mount Tampa. Reasonably priced cable car for the 2min 20s journey with amazing views across Brasov (albeit terrifyingly high). There is a cafe at the top of the mountain for a stop before trekking the hours trip down.

Tampa is one of Brasov's icons. It's just like LA's Hollywood sign. From above, you're seeing the whole city which can be very beautiful during the winter. Definitely a place to visit in Brasov.

You can get the cable car up the mountain or just walk it, either way its pretty cool getting up behind the giant Brasov sign and taking a glance at the town below, its a nice walk up through the mountain forest if you like to just go for a walk. Just be careful as there are no railings next... More

To get here, you could use cable car or hike but I prefer hike because it just take 1 hour to the top, and all your effort will be worth it once you are on the top. You could see Brasov from here its like you have Brasov in your eyes. Brasov looks very beautiful. Its better in the morning... More

We waited until a clear day to go up and see the beautiful views of Brasov from the adjacent Tampa mountain. You can walk if you're into that sort of thing, but we grabbed a cable car both ways. The views were brilliant and we were blessed with a really warm day, despite the time of year. I don't think... More
