“Great View”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 19, 2013

We went up using the cable car. Then walked to Brasov sign. The city view was beautiful. That's it up there. There is a cafe/restaurant but didn't look attractive for me.

“Beautiful place to enjoy the panorama of Brasov”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 10, 2013

The gondola takes you to 960 m high in less than 5 minutes.
There is a small restaurant where you can rest and enjoy hot or cold drinks, with very good service.
The place is nature reserve, with beautiful trees, plants and birds.
A trail winds behind the letters Brasov to a terrace where you can admire and photograph the city in all its splendor.
A place not to miss when you visit Brasov.

“Nice Lookout”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 10, 2013

Fast cable car up the mountain about a 10-15 minute walk from town. You need to buy both up and down tickets unless you plan on walking. There are alternative walking routes up/down. The actual lookout at the Brasov sign is a 5 minute walk on rocky/dirt ground after the cable car ride. There is a slightly higher lookout above the Brasov sign.There is a restaurant at the top with food and drink. You can see the entire city from this lookout.

“Cable Car ride, scenic walk and great vista”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 22, 2013

I love funiculars and cable cars and this one was fun and fast. You stand all the way. Then there is a short walk to the overlook. Great view of Brasov and surrounding countryside. You walk behind the big "BRASOV' letters (like HOLLYWOOD in LA).
