The soul of this church wraps its memories around your mind and whispers its secrets through the air. Peek into the marriage room, imagine emotions melt and the healing of two souls begin merging into one. Fighting couples were locked up with only a spoon...More

An impressive structure overlooking the town. Well preserved on the outside with the ability to take a self guided tour. But, the interior spaces are not accessible to the public. The towers and the church were locked on my visit. Nevertheless, worth a quick tour...More

One of the finest fortified church in the area, an UNESCO heritage site. We loved it. If you are in the area, you must see it!

This is one of the most important churches of old times and worth a visit. The wooden stair up to the church is beautiful, the church itself and the view from there is gorgeous.

Hi, called the local priest, Ulf Ziegler and I found out that the bell is not ringing for the time being, due to restoration process. It will take some time to be back in use (probably next year). I'll keep you posted. Mihai

Hi, I recommend taxi. From Sighisoara to Biertan are around 30 km. The cost should be around 20$. Have a nice trip, Liviu
