The people working there knew nothing about it and after alot of searching I found a series of paintings in an alcove to the left of the altar. In artwork... More

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.

This church has no special features - you can see one wall-painting and some parts of the old altar inside, and that's about all. If not afraid of heights, you can climb on the tower to look at the red roofs of the old town from above.

An amazing church! The huge organ, the stained glass windows, that whole room filled with old grave stones... and the climb up in the highest church tower, what an amazing, unforgettable experience. If you want to see all (and I mean all) of Sibiu from very high up, do climb up in the tower! Once you get up there you... More

Gorgeous old German church in the heart of Hermannstadt (Saxon name for Sibiu -- was a Saxon city until 1918) surrounded by wonderful architecture and views in this precinct.
