Since the city is surrounded by taller hills, a nice vantage point over the city of Sighisoara can be found on the top of a larger hill right behind the train station. You can easily get there by car. This is one of the best places to admire the beautiful panorama of the city because from there, a large part of the city is visible including the old inhabited medieval citadel.
As you can see from the photos below, both the upper and lower part of Sighisoara medieval citadel is visible. Unfortunately, the most emblematic building, the Clock Tower, is covered by the town hall, only a part of its roof is visible. On the left side of the citadel, you will find the Holy Trinity Orthodox church.
Visit the Sighisoara Medieval Citadel
After admiring the city’s panorama from above, it’s time to explore the old Sighisoara Medieval Citadel because it is home to one of the best-preserved medieval citadels in Europe. Its cobblestone streets, colorful buildings, and medieval architecture create a picturesque setting that transports visitors back in time.
