As a World Heritage Site, Sighisoara is visited mostly for its fortified Old Town surrounded entirely by city walls. The medieval history is rich here and has been well-preserved through time, as you may experience yourself if you catch one of the medieval festivals. The citadel, which is also named a World Heritage Site, stands here as another popular tourist attraction. The cobblestone streets and colorful buildings have an enchanting, fairy-tale quality. Situated in the heart of Transylvania, Sighisoara is often used as a base to visit the nearby Saxon villages of Viscri and Biertan. Plan your vacation with our Romania trip planning tool and discover the best things to do in Sighisoara.

Where to stay in Sighisoara

To fully enjoy Sighisoara's old-world charm, book a room in a guesthouse, hostel, bed and breakfast, or hotel in the medieval town center. Stay close to the citadel, the clock tower, or the Covered Staircase to be surrounded by 16th-century Saxon houses. The town is quite small, so book in advance, as it is a popular tourist destination.
