There is a serpentine trail up the face and totally beats the lazy lift ride. The view from the top is magnificant any time of the year. It is also a nature reserve and a beautiful place to escape the summer heat with a kids playground at the bottom of the trail.

We decided to walk to the top. It was a hot summer day, and turned out to quite the exercise. A rustic, steep path takes you to the top and a great and somewhat scary view. At the top there's a restaurant that serves beer ... And probeably food ... :o) We took the cable car back down, and it was just as scenic and scary. Recommended!

Sometime, back in the 80`s maybe...now...they let this attraction die...
You may have ( still) a good dinner and a nice evening view over the entire Brasov.

Access to the cable car station (telecabina) is a short 5 minute walk from the Main Square. Don't be put off as the station looked closed when we arrived. Push through the metal framed doors and up to the ticket office. It cost 15 lei for a return ride in the cable car and the views were breathtaking as we wooshed up the 50 meters mountain in around 2 minutes. We chose to walk the snowy trail tobthe panoramic views from the Hollywood esque Brasov sign at the top of the mountain.

Stunning views over the old town and to the Carpathian mountains in the distance. Must do in my opinion

I climbed Tampa and, though it was icy, it was manageable. The most difficult parts are at the bottom and the top where it's relatively flat, but on the climb up, there is a railing to hold onto to keep your traction. If you take your time you will do just fine and the rewarding view at the top is well worth the climb.

I wouldn't recommend going down the hill as it's harder going down slippery slopes than up. I took the cable car for 9 lei.

I think the review below by Sisi981 is expecting a developed "touristy" site. If you're looking for a fancy attraction with full amenities at the top, prepare to be disappointed. However, if you're looking for a medium difficulty and fairly short hike with a beautiful view at the top, then this is for you!
