The Biertan fortified church (Romanian: Biserica fortificată din Biertan; German: Kirchenburg von Birthälm) is a Lutheran fortified church in Biertan (Birthälm), Sibiu County, in the Transylvania region of Romania. It was built by the ethnic German Transylvanian Saxon community at a time when the area belonged to the Kingdom of Hungary. Briefly Roman Catholic, it became Lutheran following the Reformation. Together with the surrounding village, the church forms part of the villages with fortified churches in Transylvania UNESCO World Heritage Site.
Medieval and mysterious atmosphere. Worth visiting.
UNESCO World Heritage site. Beautiful locațion in the heart of Transylvania
It's a really stunning place you'd like to visit.
Beautiful fortified church. Complex and big, well restored.
Beautiful Church, Rich History This is a beautiful church in a beautiful village but you need a very good guide to visit with. There are a lot of secrets you can find in almost each thing in the church from the door to the altar. It is not open all the time and they have a lunch break.
Situated as the centrepoint of the very small town it stands very well presented, clean and grand. Exceptionally well preserved and looked after. It is off the beaten track but you pass the friendly locals on the way
