By foot it is a mere 15 minute walk. After exiting the train station walk slightly downhill about 50m until you reach the main street, turn right and take the street immediately on the left, Strada Gãrii. At the end of the street, turn left and then immediately right in front of the large white Orthodox church. Cross the river, the Tarnava Mare, on the pedestrian bridge and turn to the right on the other side. You are now directly facing the fortress. Across the street and about 50m to the right is a newspaper stand. Next to the newspaper stand is a stairway. Take the stairs to the top, enter the fortress and walk past the Catholic church (on your left). Turn right into the street that dead-ends into the Catholic Church and walk just 73 m straight ahead – we are located on the left hand side.
Travel by Car
Sighisoara is located directly on the E 60, which runs from Amsterdam to Constanta. Unfortunately, this important road cuts directly through the town.
The fortress is impossible to miss and signs labelled “Cetate” will direct you.
Travel by Bus or Van
Over the past several years a well-developed network of busses and large vans has developed as an alternative to the train system.
As a result Sighisoara is also easily accessed by bus.
The Burg-Hostel is located in the heart of the medieval fortress of Sighisoara in a set of carefully restored 17th century buildings.
Both the town center, the so-called Lower City, as well as all the key tourist points of interest in town are just a few minutes’ walk away.
Travel by Plane
In the meantime, a number of inexpensive airlines offer service to Romania. Blue-Air, German Wings and Wizz-Air normally offer less expensive prices than the traditional airlines such as Tarom, Lufthansa or Carpat-Air.
