Sibiu walking tour with a local guide

The tour of Sibiu comes in 4 versions of different lenghts, from 1.5 hours to an entire day.


classic tour of sibiu 1.5 hours

If the walls of the Old Town of Sibiu could talk, you never have needed a guide. But, as they are always quiet, it would be a pleasure for me to share with you the history behind each building, street, tower or square that has a story to tell to the curious eyes of the visitor.

During the guided tour, I’ll lead your steps through the cobbled streets, from the imposing medieval walls, to the romantic squares surrounded by historical buildings; from the colourful Orthodox Cathedral, to the majestic Lutheran Church, from the legends of the Bridge of Lies to the amazing stories of the medieval guilds. The tour will be also a good opportunity to find out more about the historical, geographical, economical or cultural aspects of Sibiu, in particular, or Transylvania and Romania, in general.

But this tour can be more than that. If my tourists want, this tour can be like having a walk with an old friend in his new town. We can stop at any time a have a short break at one of my favourites cafes, or even have lunch or dinner, if we get hungry. Also, to be honest, I don't really like guiding large groups in Sibiu. I prefer to get to know my tourists, to interact more with them and to share together thoughts and ideas.

Sibiu city & Astra Museum tour - 4 hours

The old town and the Astra Museum appear in the first places in any tourist guide about the city of Sibiu. This tour will is including a guided tour of both places. In fact, this tour consists of the classic tour, presented above, and the tour of the Astra Museum, the largest museum dedicated to popular civilization in Romania.
The open-air museum or the Museum of Traditional Popular Civilization Astra is the largest museum exhibition in Romania and one of the largest open-air museums. It is located in a beautiful natural setting, in the Dumbrava Forest, a forest that connects the city of Sibiu with the nearby mountains. The museum has multiple roles: open-air exhibition with elements of rural technique and architecture from all over the country, but at the same time, it is a living museum, trying to revive the atmosphere of the village of yore in Romania. Don't be surprised if, while walking in the museum alley, you will meet sheep or cows grazing or noisy flocks of geese and ducks. In addition, in the warm season, rural gastronomy events or craftsmen fairs are organised almost every weekend.
In winter, when the alleys of the museum are covered with snow, the visit can be done from a horse-drawn sleigh.

Sibiu city & and surroundings - 8 hours

What to see in Sibiu in one day? If you're limited in time and plan to spend just one day in Sibiu, what would be the things to see? The full-day tour of Sibiu and surroundings is giving the solution: a concentrated itinerary including the most important touristic attractions in Sibiu, optimally arranged, giving our 7 years experience in organising private tours in Sibiu.
The tour is divided into 3 parts:

  • the walking tour of Sibiu
  • the Astra museum visit
  • Sibiu villages tour

The walking tour of Sibiu, as described above, is a good start to start a day in Sibiu, giving the visitor useful information about the city history, but also touching economical and political aspects of the region. Beyond that, this part of the day will include a visit to the daily market, to get to know better the real vibe of the city, outside of its touristic area. And of course, it will be a good occasion for an introduction to the local gastronomy.

Then, on the second stage of our tour, we will visit the Astra Museum, located in the outskirts of the city, in a splendid forest setting.

In the last part of the day, we will venture in the countryside, to have a closer feel of village life. We will visit 2 different areas: the Romanian villages area and the Saxon villages area. This will give us the opportunity to learn more about the differences in architecture and rural culture, but also the influences between those 2 communities. During the village visit, we may see the daily routine of the village, with farmers working their land, horse-driven carts, haystacks, flocks of sheep or cows grazing.
If our guests will be interested, we can have a traditional lunch, home-cooked in one of those villages. Besides guiding, we will provide also transportation from Sibiu to Astra Museum and the countryside.
