It is placed in the old town of Sibiu. Together with the rest of the main attraction from old town create the most beautiful city from Romania. You should visit all of them in order to understand how beautiful are together.

Some of the paintings were so dark, they were hard to see. It was also very stuffy in many of the room,,,no air conditioning.

The palace is a grand edifice for a city like Sibiu and the collection was assembled largely about 230 years ago by the local Transylvanian governor. Lesser pieces from a range of top tier renaissance painters but worth the visit. Pleasantly surprised by quality.

Let's be honest this was small and boring, and the man in the ticket office was comically grumpy-that was the one highlight!

Stunning centrepiece of Hapsburg Hermannstadt. The original wallpaper is as stunning as the art collection.

Incredible collection of Transylvanian artists of German origin plus a remarkable selection of consecrated Romanian paintors. Best gift shop ever seen in a museum and visited a few around Europe. In addition you can visit the international gallery section plus some beautifully preserved rooms of the Brukenthal palace.
