We did not hike up, but took a Timpa funicular/ cable car up the mountain to have a great view. We came pretty early in the day, so no restaurants were open yet, but we had a good time anyway. With snow lying around I suggest a good pair of shoes, as there are no sidewalks on the top, if... More

Use the cable car for a quick and cheap way to the top of the mountain. At the top you'll experience amazing views of the city and surrounding areas. It's a short (but "interesting") walk to the Brasóv sign

Cable car runs from old town or you can walk but probably a bit treacherous in winter to walk. Even the walk from the cable car at the top to the viewing platform was very slippery.

I was travelling with a group and a few of us took the trolley/cable car up to the top. That was a must. You felt a little unsteady when the car first starts, but was steady once it started going. The rides run every 15 minutes. You can hike around to the Brasov sign. However, be careful. The terrain is... More

Price was 16RON each return which is cheap. The cable car was great and provided lots of amazing views and photo ops. Once at the top, however, it became clear that no attempt has been made to clear the ice or snow. We fell a couple of times and persevered and the views from the sign were stunning. But we... More

We took the cable car to the top which had some nice views but when we got to the top there was a closed restaurant (we got the impression it was no longer in use), a flag and lots of snow and ice. I didn't really see anything else. We attempted to find the sign as we heard the views... More

Gorgeous views, took the cable cart up to explore the top and it didn't disappoint. Ensure you walk over to the BRASOV sign for the best views. Cheap and cheerful cable car service too, costs 16 leu for a return trip :)
