Day 1 – Sachiz Village
Saschiz is home to a Fortified Church part of UNESCO Heritage and a Saxon fortress from the 14th century with 9m high defense walls and the Peasants’ Fortress located on a hill overlooking the village. We’ll visit these places and learn about the area while enjoying some very nice bike trails, sun & sweat – a great mix for an adventurous day trip in Transylvania’s countryside!
Overnight in Cloasterf
We then travel to the nearby village of Cloasterf, also part of the Saxon heritage. We say hello to villagers and lovely ladies on our way (cows!) before settling in our overnight accommodation – a village house restored into a charming guesthouse. A delicious dinner awaits, with traditional dishes and products from the area!
Day 2 – Viscri Village
Viscri is probably the most representative and popular Saxon village in Transylvania. Tourist crowds are discouraged by bad roads leading to it, but bikers won’t have a problem! It’s a place untouched by modern civilization, where life is peaceful and stress-free, food is delicious and the quiet nature is a well-deserved break from busy city life. HRH Prince Charles came here, fell in love with the place and bought 2 village houses – so why shouldn’t you?
