“Wooden bridge built 370 years ago”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 18, 2012

A bridge that has withstood the sands of time. A national treasure and olympic experience to run up. I read about this extensively prior to my first visit and it was just as sweet to ascend the stairs on my second visit. You will take in the Saxon Church whose construction began in the 13th century, the predominently Saxon German cemetary the bilingual Romanian German School and one of the original watch towers occupied by the keepers of the cemetary and church.. Immediately to the left at the top of your 200M march your will take in a lovely view of the town with the famous clock-tower majestically poised below. I too will return as often as I can.

“Welcome to the 17th century”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 27, 2012

An amazing wooden construction that takes you from the lower town to the upper part. Sighisoara itself is an impossibly romantic place, the Scala Coperta makes it irresistible .... I'll be back again and again ....
