Sighisoara is a gem - a beautifully kept city on a hill with cobblestone streets, stone gates, and historic architecture. Begin your tour at the Clock Tower which houses a natural history museum - worth a look if you are interested in Bronze age to medieval tools - but also to climb the tower to see the inner workings of the Glockenspiel clock and the magnificent views of the city from the tower top. Then, walk the streets to see the remaining fortified wall and towers which were guarded by the various guilds of the city (e.g., the rope making and book binding guilds). At the top of the hill stands the old church and cemetary, next to the current day "Theoretical" high school. The old church is reached by a covered "bridge" of stairs that takes you straight up for more views of the charming Sighisoara.
