On the insistence of a local friend we went up to the Tampa mountain which is where the BRASOV sign is installed much like Hollywood and the walk up is super refreshing. Once you reach up and go towards the sign - Brasovs architecture and beauty simply stand out. Once you go beyond this sign on the backside of Mount Tampa you will get a feeling you are not in a city anymore. You are in some forest and you can go from one mountain to another. It is an experience that everybody trying to explore Brasov must have. If you are lucky you could spot a bear as well.

Walked few times...loved it! It makes you feel more connected to yourself. Its trees encourages you through the serpentines. Looks like a challenge and helped me feeling released, more energetic, much joyful. Give it a try and...don't forget the Selfie up there, with an amazing view of Brasov from above :).

Definitely one of the things you need to do if you visit Brasov. The views are stunning. You have the option of walking up and / or down, or the cable car. Little to do at the top. They closed the restaurant last year but you can get drinks. Cable car can take a while in the queue as the cars only take 20 people. However none of us could face walking up (too hungover) but it was a great walk down. Make sure you have suitable footwear for it though. It says an hour down but with a decent walking pace on the red route you can be down in 40 minutes. Make sure you walk to the Brasov sign as you can walk behind it to a viewing platform of the entire region which has spectacular views.

There are a few options for getting to the top of Mount Tâmpa: choice of three different trails through the woodlands or a cable car. We took the cable car which was around £4 for both ways though we ended up walking down. The queue was shorter than other days but was still 30minutes.
Once at the top there is only a cafe which serves cold drinks, beer and coffee. Not much of a view there as it’s enclosed in trees. The best spot to take in the view is the the big Brasov sign a few meters up the hill.
There used to be a communist style restaurant at the top buts now closed which is a pity as it looked quite quirky.
We walked down taking the shortest trail which took us 40minutes at a decent pace. Great morning to work up an appetite.

Excellent time in nature. The view from top is great. Unfortunately, there are no cafes or restaurants on the top - all closed, so bring your own refreshments...

What a great way to kick off the week in Transylvania!
Brasov is a comfortable and easy city to navigate, staying in the old town center definitely is a great move. Waking up just before the sunrise, I stopped by a coffee window and grabbed a double with a delicious pastry to warm up for the trek up Mount Tampa. A quick walk past one of the original towers, the trail started. Easily marked by red paint and pretty clear pathway the skyline started to glow. Moderate hike with intermittent views of the valley and city below!
Reaching the top, you get a chance to walk behind the "Hollywood" sign marking the city, trek further up towards the north end of the mount and you find a platform vista marking where the fortress once guarded the valley. Was surprised as there were two campers wrapped up in sleeping bags below the platform, I was definitely envious of their morning wake up views!
The walk down along I came upon a fox trotting its way up the mountain path, it paid little attention to me and was withing a few meters! Quite an amazing experience to wrap up my sunrise hike. Overall I was gone for about two hours as I took plenty of leisure and reflection time with the vistas and wildlife.

Take the cable car up to the top of Mt Tampa (18 lei return) and walk through the cafe to the start of the path. It's an easy climb, unless you're mobility impaired. The path is rocky limestone and a bit slippery so be aware of where your feet are. You walk behind the "Brasov" sign (which is pretty cool) to the viewing platform with all of Brasov spread below. Take a side trail and walk through the forest. Well worth the time!

If you are in Brasov and you look for a great cheap activity to do go climb the tampa mountain.Its a easy walk and the view from the top is nice.If you want to avoid the climb take the cable car but I dont suggest it.Dont waste money and get in good shape!

Multiple shaded trails going to the top. Great views of city from up there. some parts of the trail can be rocky or a bit rough.
