Mount Tampa, Brasov

4.3
#1 of 49 in Nature in Romania
Walk up one of the twisting trails or ride a cable car to reach the top of Mount Tampa, which offers panoramic views of the city. The mountain rises 900 m (2,952 ft) above sea level as a natural landmark that divides the new area of the town with condos and factories from its medieval section. You'll be able to distinguish the old German district of the town because of its red roofs. From the top, you can walk over the ridges of the hills following the marked trails to higher altitudes. The shaded alley along the side of the old fortress walls at the foot of the hill is a popular strolling spot.

    I can never get bored of the amazing views from the top. You can hike all the way up or take the "telecabina" which is costing you 17 lei per person (about $5 US dollars) to go up and come back down. ...  more »

    You can see entire city's panorama from above. This mountain is used for hiking or to run. Beautiful place, with bears, too under the Sunset. :) So take care.  more »

    The views are nice but it is crowded. Personally the cartel seems ugly to the Hollywood of Brasov and also once up nor is there a ready viewpoint, only you can stroll between irons of the cartel. Gondola Sinaia much better, better views and more space and less crowded.
