The best thing i found visiting here was the view of the town from the four turrets at the top. Incredible Lord of the Ring style mountains in the background make all the more impressive. You can feel how old the place is when you walk around in side, with the usual impressive windows and sculptures.

When in Sibiu, it's a must-see. We didn't go up to the top, but just saw the interior. Like many Protestant places of worship, it's now a bit austere in the interior. By contrast, I thought the Evangelischekirche in Brasov was more impressive. But both are impressive, and define the city.

After a walk in the big square, maybe a visit to Brukental; make sure you visit the church. If you do so, do not pass the opportunity to go up the tower for a chance to see Sibiu for above. The trip up the wooden stairs is a thrilling experience and not for the faint hearted. Nevertheless it needs to... More

Yes, those are the dates shown on what The Rough Guide To Romania states is a fine example of a war memorial. Why 1919? Perhaps, because the Paris Peace Conference was that year - and Queen Marie of Romania attended it. The Cathedral was Catholic until the Reformation, then Lutheran. It might only be a temporary exhibition but the enlarged... More

I was here in 2014 when the church was partially closed due to reconditioning and I came back in may 2015. I was extremely pleasantly surprised of the great work they have done - the church looks great. We also climbed in the tower - not recommended for people who have bed of heights. I loved climbing in the tower... More

The view from the top of the tower is wonderful. Even if the acces is a little bit difficulty, we discover a spendid view of the city. Also, on the 6th floor we found the clock mechanism, an intersting piece from the history of watches.

Too bad we came in the evening, so we couldn't go in....so charming to watch history's bastions amidst a lovely, charming city in the 21 century.

The cathedral is like every other, but the view of the city is everything. You have to climb 192 stairs to reach the top. The entrance is around 2 euros.

That's the place you want to visit if you are looking for a nice view of Sibiu! For 8 RON you get to visit the church and to climb the tower - but be aware that it's shaky steel-construction that leaves up to the top. An amazing view of the city is the reward!
