it is special also if you see it at night. it is like thousands of fireflies are down there. and I find it very romantic also. if you get there, spend a couple of minutes to admire the view

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!

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
