Trip Planner: Europe / Romania / Transylvania / Central Romania / Brasov County / Brasov / Mount Tampa
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.

We climbed there at midnight which was amazing. I suggest it to everybody but without right equipment its dangerous. And it takes alot to go there even if it rains it will be slippery and you won't remember it as a good adventure. When we reached up there was a traveller guy alone trying to sleep there. That time I understood that I am not the crazy one. It was really tiring to climb up but when you see the city lights from up there at night its definitely worthy.
Has a beautiful view above Brasov.
