I have tried to visit this church several times, but it is always closed for renovations. Since it is a protestant church do not expect extensive decorations inside, but the sheer volume of the church is impressive, its proportions are fine, its simplicity is touching.

Although this cathedral was under restoration during my visit, it was worth the visit. Due to the height of the tower, it can be seen all over town!

Unfortunately when I was there with my family, the cathedral couldn't be visited because it was under some major renovation work. The exterior though it takes your breath away. It is absolutely majestic and you can imagine how it was in its glory days. The only reason I marked it as being very good instead of excellent is that we... More

The Lutheran Evangelical Cathedral and Tower is an impressive structure in downtown Sibiu. It provides a stark contrast to the Eastern Orthodox bisercas that dominate Romania. It is reflective of the diverse ethnic groups that occupied Romania over the centuries. We were unable enter the church because of renovations.

Worth a visit, even if just to take in the exterior. Impressive spire. Should be made part of your walking tour of old town.

Anyone who has traveled to Sibiu can tell you that the Tower of the Lutheran Church is probably the town's most important landmark. I've visited Sibiu many times, and when I'm driving through town trying to get to the main square, it's always my guide. The Church was built by Saxon settlers in the Gothic Style, and is a rich...

One of Romanian's most beautiful medieval city, and the evangelical cathedral from Sibiu is worth your visit. You must climb the tower for an awesome city view. Verry cheap
