Awesome view, be careful if you choose to go by foot and its raining, its VERY slippery. Better to go with a clean weather.

View is great - it would be better if few trees were cut, but from Belvedere (next to the sign) it's much better. It's super slippery there so either good shoes are recommended or somebody should put some sand there. Price both ways was something ~20 leis.

It's a nice trip on the cable car to the top, from where it is possible to enjoy pleasant walks in the hills overlooking Brasov. A particular highlight in the view over the city from behind the famous 'Brasov' sign. The 'Brasserie' (a cafeteria) at the cable car station is not up to much - in fact it was closed... More

A must visit via cable car if in the area. The view over Brasov and the surrounding area is lovely and well worth taking some time out to appreciate it.

You have several access points to the mountain; the most common one starts somewhere close to the city center. It's about a 2-hour walk up, most of it through the woods, medium effort. Once up, you get to see the Brasov sign letters from behind. This is also probably the best viewpoint for the whole city and the surrounding areas.

Absolutely worth taking a cable cart to look the views of the beautiful Brasov. During my visit it was pretty foggy but for a Finn like me the views were amazing. Also you can walk around on the top it's not just staying in one sweet-spot.

Easy one hour trip to the top of the mountain right from the city center. Tampa offers fresh air and a beautiful view of the city and of the surrounding mountains. Good opportunity to explore the local flora and fauna of the protected area on your own or with friends. A local architectural project makes your stay on the top... More

There are many marked easy to navigate trails if you want to circle the mountain or switchbacks if you want to go to the summit. The easiest is to take the gondola, but we hike this with our kids (age 9,11) often. The view overlooking Brasov is well worth it!

The cable car will take you up there in less than 10' and from the top You have to walk 5-7' for the view behind ,,V" from Brașov Hollywood name. Don't miss it If you are în Brașov because the view is just amazing.
