It is no coincidence that the fortified fortress of Biertan is one of the most famous in Transylvania. The town was among the first German settlements in Transylvania. Besides the impressive altar and the imposing organ, a legend is attached to the fortress according to...More
Another really interesting fortified church in a lovely village. The covered walkway up to the church is to be admired and the interior of the church is more grand than the church at the top of the hill in Sighişoara. 10 RON to enter. Very...More
The centrepiece of Biertan and surrounding area, this Saxon church dominates the skyline. It's RON 10 to get in (about GBP 2.00) and staff are on hand to explain the rich history of this site. Well worth a visit.

We went with a guide from Sighisoara for 250 lei for about 2-1/2 hours. This fortified church built in the late 15th century was originally Roman Catholic but changed to Lutheran during the reformation. One can get to it via the covered steps or a...More
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.
