Part of the old Brasov fortification. was closed when we got there but nice views of the city. There are some stairs to/from the city center if you feel like walking.

One can walk there from the town square and is a well maintained gate/tower that was used in medieval times. Walking around its base and a short climb is good exercise and calming.
