One of the "top 5" Lutheran Churches in Romania

In the process of being renovated, which they are funding with entrance fees. Go see the antique gravestones and W W 2 photo exhibit in the more secluded part of the catherdral.

It had a sign saying that the kids below 7yrs are not allowed. Now where were we supposed to leave the kids?. Secondly, there was a separate fee for the church and a separate fee , if some one wants to climb the tower.

This is an essential site to visit if you wish to develop an understanding of the German community and its connection through the ages with Sibiu. There was an excellent anti war exhibition in the cathedral when I visited.

The tower is amazing. You can watch the whole city from above. There are 4 little towers. You can open the windows even though they say you may not. Look at Piata Huet on the north side.

Beautiful architecture and amazing view from the church tower! 200 steps but worth it even on a hot day! After you can have a cool drink at Cafe Wien.

You re allowed to take pictures inside without having to pay extra lei. going up the stairs is scary, its so steep, why? because the tower is the highest of all the structures but on top, you get another breath taking view of the town higher than the Tower of...
