Take car up and walk down for stunning views

Definitely a must do in Brasov. You can either take the very old cable car up that will get you there in 2 minutes or walk up- it take about an hour. We took car up and walked... read more

The promenade is very nice to walk, but to climb up with the cable car is not worth. We climbed up with kids 9&11 years old, there is nothing to do on the Mount top.

A good way to get a very nice view of Brasov and surroundings, including the view from behind the Hollywood-like Brasov sign. You can choose whether to walk or take the cable car to and from the top. There is also a bar/restaurant by the cable car station at the top. However, the site is not very well kept. Could... More

we enjoyed the views from the top! As we have seen that we would have needed to wait quite long to go down by cablecar, we have decided to walk down and it was a great idea. A nice 30 minutes walk through the wood!!!

While the view at the top is nice, everything there except a small outdoor cafe and a dark and not-very-inviting pub (no windows - at the location of Brasov's best view) is closed. I recommend hiking ten minutes to the location of the Hollywood style "BRASOV" letters in the hillside. That's where the best view is.

You can hike or get the cable car to the top. If you get the cable car at first as you approcah the station at the bottom it appears to be closed down but just walk around the corner and it is all up and running fine. The journey up and down just takes minutes but the hike looked a... More

Of course that Mount Tâmpa offers the best view over the city of Brașov, especially when looking down (from above the illuminated big sign of BRAȘOV - Hollywood style) to the Old City. You can go up with the cable car or by foot (following the marked paths, taking few hours). If you intend to go for the walk alternative... More

We caught the tele-car to the top of Tampa, and had a short walk around, it was well worth it. A bit windy up there but stunning view.

You can access the top of Tampa by foot on several tracks or by cable cart. From the top you have a splendid panorama of the city, also you can enjoy the walking in the middle of nature.
