Great gothic architecture

Impressive architectural piece. Exquisite painted glass windows. Great atmosphere created by the organon player. Go up in the tower for a nice view over the city.

Everything started there... The church is very beautiful, and worth climbing the tower (i consider the stairs are quite safe).

The church is fantastic, both on the inside and the outside :) But, if you wanna go up for a great view of the city...you might consider the stairs unsafe :( I really wanted to, but didn't have the guts for it.

Church and entry to the tower combined ticket was 8 lei per person. The church was an impressive example of Lutheran style being very tall ached ceiling but with walls and ceiling not painted unlike the nearby Catholic and new Orthodox churches which have excellent interiors but it is a very impressive interior nonetheless. The high point here was the... More

The Evangelical Cathedral is a must do when visiting Sibiu. Absolutely beautiful inside and the view from the tower is amazing. The walk to the top is well worth the effort, but anyone with vertigo will freak out, as would vacationing Work, Health & Safety Inspectors - so make sure you do it soon.

Very pretty church. I could not believe they would allow us to climb all the way to the top of the tower, but they DID! Watch your step getting up there, and especially watch out for pigeon poop as I guess they tend to roost up there. But enjoy the climb, and especially the view from the top!

The Lutheran Evangelical Cathedral is simple and pretty, but what makes it really worth the visit is climbing the bell tower to see incredible views of Sibiu. You pay a small fee inside the church, and the entrance to the tower is also inside the church. Be prepared for more stairs than you ever thought were possible. Also---there are a... More

With well-worn pews and stone floors, this church looks its age. One can imagine millions of worshiping footsteps down through the ages. The crucifixion triptych from 1400 is magnificent. Relatively plain compared to other cathedrals, it leaves an impression.

This is a great church to visit if you are scared of heights it may not be for you but if you push back those fears the view from the church Windows is phenomenal! So quiet and peaceful! MUST MUST MUST visit.
