Biertan

Once is not enough

Biertan is located in a long valley surrounded by hills and vineyards. The village was founded in 1283 and is dominated by Saint Mary’s citadel and church. This hilltop medieval construction, surrounded by three fortified walls, has been named a World Heritage Site by the UNESCO Foundation.

Biertan, or Birthaläm in German, is not just an amazing fortified church built more than 400 year ago nor just another UNESCO site. It is a travel back in time. 

From Biertan you could enjoy several day-trips to Sighisoara, Medias or Sibiu. Biertan is a very good base to dive in the world of the forgotten villages from Transylvania. Definitely, Biertan is one of the most interesting UNESCO sites of Romania which should be on the agenda of each and every traveler
