We were lucky we had a car and could drive to the entrance gate, from where there is still a steep climb to the fortress. While it has some interesting architecture and great views unfortunately it was closed the day we were there; not sure...More

Easy climb to the fortress, stairs or zig-zag through the woods. Fortress was closed when there, so we went around it and checked the view of part of Brasov you don't see from center.

You can't miss the Citadel, from the town it looks amazing and as you walk up to the Citadel you begin to see the neglect. It is formally closed, you can walk around the outside (it is worth the visit) and you may get lucky...More

Quite a long walk up but worth it for the views. We took path down which led to the park and News Caffe where we stopped for a beer. This is also supposed to be a tourist office but only had leaflets in Romanian

You can get there either by foot or by car. By foot: from Iuliu Maniu Street, you go right across from the City Hall. There is a sign "Cetatuie" which leads to some stairs through the parc up to Mihai Eminescu Street... More
