About
Discover the rich history and culture of Râșnov by visiting the iconic Râșnov Fortress, located at Str. Cetății nr. 17. The fortress, one of the most important historical monuments in Romania, is currently undergoing a major restoration process. Today, visitors can explore the Fortress Garden, where they can take in stunning views of the surrounding landscape and learn more about the fortress's history through informative displays and exhibits. Built by Saxons and Teutonic knights during the 1211-1225 Crusade, the Râșnov Fortress has stood the test of time, resisting invasions by the Tatars in 1335 and the Ottomans in 1421. It served as a refuge for the Râșnov community until the 18th century and is a testament to the city's rich cultural heritage.

Was looking forward to visiting the Fortress, but it has been closed for renovation for awhile. And from what we saw there doesn't seem to be much work going on. All you can see is one of the gates and exterior. Not worth much of a detour

it seems like this place has been closed for remodeling since 2019.

the only way to visit now is to drive up to the fortress grounds 45.590137350051464, 25.470518233282988 . then walk around the exterior. estimate 30 min for the brief visit would be enough

As other reviewers have commented, the citadel is closed to 2023. Judging by the lack of any form of activity, I would say that is optimistic at best. It is 12 lei to park all day but can’t see a compelling reason why you would want to park for longer than a couple of hours. There is an extra charge to take the train up to the top but it really isn’t needed. The walk of about 10 minutes is a fairly gentle incline and manageable for most and the steepest park is after the train drops you off anyway.
There isn’t a great deal to do at the top. Whilst the size and scale of the citadel is impressive you can only walk part way around the outside of the walls to admire views. The best vista is probably at the opposite end to where you approach the structure although we saw much better elsewhere on our tour of Romania.
The best bit was the restaurant at the bottom.

One nice lady offered to walk me up to the foothill from the bus stop.
She politely informed that it was closed for renovation which i was already aware of.
The furnicular was unfortunately closed too but i was prepared to hike up (took about 20 mins), the athletic one prob needs only half the time. There it was the fortress, looks Majestics. Took photo and left.

It’s closed, probably for good. Don’t go. You are paying for nothing. Paid for parking and a tractor/train lift up the cobbled driveway, that was it. No information at ticket office to say it was closed. Absolutely rediculously tipped off!

We visited the Rasnov Citadel today and found it closed for renovation. Parking at the bottom costs 12 Lei. The tractor pull ride up the steep incline is 7 Lei per person. We arrived at the top and found it closed. We were not informed of this at the bottom when buying tickets. It doesn't appear it will be opening any time soon. You must go up the incline to get any photos of the citadel. It's a steep walk but can be done. If the weather is nice, it may be worth going there for at least a few exterior photos.

I think it was my third visit, the last one was in 2013, there was no inclined lift yet. I told the story of how we arrived near the entrance where we saw a bazaar, a building where a tourist information centre operates and two Rishnors who let you ride their horse or pony for a fee of course. From the bazaar you can take a walk around the outside of the first enclosure because like any well made fortress in Ardeal Râșnov had 2 enclosure walls.

Not this time (in 2013 we went) we quickly walked to the ticket office and entered under the gate tower into the outer courtyard or the fortress garden as they say. It's a wide spot only good for playing a bit of football or photographing the whole fortress. This is where the cattle used to be housed and frankly even now they had something to eat, the place is not really landscaped there are just some paths going up to the inner enclosure. But that's the way it used to be and I don't dispute that. Immediately after entering I noticed the foundation of a former Catholic chapel.

We started to climb until we reached the other entrance. It's a barbican without a roof but with many shooting holes. You can see that it was well preserved, plastered having a light color. Then through a tunnel we entered the inner courtyard where the citizens' houses used to be. The road inside the fortress is next to the southern enclosure wall and on the right side we saw the first ruins, the citizens' houses. Climbing higher up we saw the first whole and covered small house with a small cannon to the right of it. From this point on all the houses are renovated and have shields and burlons and most are set up as souvenir shops. Thus we find here toy or imitation weapons and armour, folk harbours, magnets, mugs, handicrafts made of glass with or without many grades, ceramic objects, wood, hats, vases, vedars, and much more.

Not missing the fortress cats next to a renovated building that seems to have been a stable in medieval times were dozens. They were quite hostile, showing all the armament they had, i.e. teeth and claws, or so they learned from their ancestors, the cats who fought the Turks.

We eventually reached a market I remember, in the middle of which we found a green corner landscaped with roses and sunflowers. Here too we find a few shops, a terrace but the centre of interest is still the small museum of feudal art. The entrance is on the west side of the square. Here you will find many objects used in the medieval period. We can see weapons, armour, furniture, household objects, tools, etc. Observing them I could imagine how they were used.

Yes, it is closed. Indeed it may open mid 2023. I was here in 2008 you were aloud to get up to the fortress by car, no parking fees. Now, petit-train a la francaise would take you up, if you pay. Prices a la francaise, thou wages in the country are much lower.....Before going there I checked and I found it somewhere that it is closed, I though we could see the surroundings, as we did in 2008. No way. SO avoid

It’s closed. You have to pay 12 Leo for parking. They don’t tell you it’s closed. You walk up 500m up the hiss to find out it’s closed. Apparently till 2023. So don’t bother
