Overview
More
The church was built between 1493 and 1525. The presence of the fortified citadel meant that this fortified church was built later than most in the area. Inside the church is an Austrian Baroque style altar from 1735. The organ is one of the ten largest and most important such organs in Transylvania. After many fires the roof was fully restored in 1830.

At first sight the church, while large does not have the aesthetic appeal of some of the others but it's an excellent visit. The church itself in very nice but the best bit is the fact that if you have enough nerve you can climb...More

This is a must see especially if you don't have enough time to visit other fortified churches (almost all of them to be found in more or less remote villages) as it is conveniently situated on the highway which links Brasov to Sighisoara. Unlike most...More

Look for a local guide. It is a very nice place, recently restored. The clock tower was closed, unfortunately

Visited this Chruch on a Monday and we were pretty much the only ones there. The church is nice and the tower next to it is very impressive and reminds me of the clock tower in Sighișoara.

The Saschiz Fortified Church is located in the centre of the commune, being easily recognisable by its beautiful bell tower (unfortunately, it cannot be climbed due to the cracks). The church is not as spectacular from inside as is it from outside, but a nice...More
