Mount Tampa, Brasov

4.5
#1 of 102 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.

  • Beautiful walk through a beautiful forest. Many paths to walk as much as desired. At the end a view of the whole valley and Brasov. Small downside for air pollution that reduces visual pleasure.

  • The cable car takes you to the summit of Tampa in a few minutes. From there it is only a short walk to the viewing platform next to the large "BRASOV" lettering. The path, however, is partly a bit sloping and above all rocky. Absolutely nothing for wearers of light summer shoes, sandals or even flip-flops! Sports shoes with a firm sole should at least be worn. From the platform you have a magnificent panoramic view from the Poliana over almost all of Brasov and the plain towards Harman (Honigberg).

  • To enjoy the nature to look for the views specially old town and its beautiful black church, or exercising!! Great place
  • Best views of the city. I would recommend to stray from the beaten path and wonder on the rest of the mountain. You can not get lost and if you think you are lost all you have to do is descent because all path will lead you right down to the city.
