In 2001 the German Messerschmitt Foundation opened this small hotel in medieval Sighisoara. Ideally located in this walled Transylvanian town near its famed 'animated' clock tower, the hotel faces the quaint central square accessible by foot or by car for hotel guests.
A few houses away from the hotel, Casa cu Cerb translated means the Deer House, is the birthplace of Vlad Sepes, also known as Dracul, the famed 16th century warrior who defeated large Turkish forces. Off-season best for calm, quiet experience. Very busy town square during summer
The town is one of Europe few intact walled medieval cities dessignated as a UNESCO Heritage site. In the last few years it has become a magnet for visitors. The hotel's is ideally suited at the heart of this attractive town and makes many surrounding medieval Saxon fortified churches easily accessible such as in Apold a few kilometers away.
It's easy to get to by excellent secondary roads from Brasov (2 hours or. 5 1/2 hours from Bucharest.
