Burg Hostel Sighișoara

Burg Hostel is located in the heart of the medieval citadel and it has 20 rooms with 80 accommodation places. We offer ideal conditions for school classes, youth and student groups, as well as for individual tourists and families.

The hostel complex is made up of three buildings, among which there is one of the oldest and most beautiful in Sighişoara, the "Shingle House", currently the only shingle house in the town. Its historical roots date back to the early 14th century.

Burg Hostel houses the offices of the Interethnic Youth Education Centre, a non-profit Association founded in 2000. The Burg Hostel's income is used to support the Centre. The most important project of the Association is "ProEtnica - Intercultural Festival Sighişoara", which takes place annually since 2001, at the end of August. ProEtnica is a tool that promotes both cultural rights and the expression of national minorities, as well as cultural dialogue, in order to strengthen an intercultural peace in a pluralistic and democratic society.

There are 20 ethnic minorities on the territory of Romania. According to the last census, the percentage of minorities in the total population of Romania is about 12%.

As an appreciation of ethnic minorities on the territory of our country, and in order to promote their ethnic and cultural specificity, Burg Hostel has dedicated to each minority a room decorated with specific ornaments. This consists of a specific hand- painting made by a local painter.

At the same time, Burg Hostel is both a member and a headquarters for "ROMANIAN HOSTELLING - Association for Hiking and Youth Camps", founded in 2014. ROMANIAN HOSTELLING intends to create an appropriate infrastructure for school and extracurricular groups and believes that hostels are rather training places than profit oriented tourist locations. The association is part of Hostelling International network, one of the largest international organizations in the world with more than 3.7 million associate members and a century-old history.

Hostelling International promotes the education of all young people of all nations, but especially young people of limited means, by encouraging in them a greater knowledge, love and care of the countryside and an appreciation of the cultural values of towns and cities in all parts of the world, and as ancillary thereto to provide hostels or other accommodation in which there shall be no distinction of origin, nationality, colour, religion, sex, class, or political opinions and thereby to develop a better understanding of their fellow men, both at home and abroad.

Burg-Hostel is located in the heart of the medieval citadel of Sighişoara.

The city center, the so-called Down Town, as well as all the tourist attractions in the city are just a few minutes walk away.


Sighişoara Citadel is a UNESCO heritage site, thus car access is restricted. Cars of max. 3.5t are allowed max. 20 minutes (time allocated for luggage transport). We support the initiative of transforming the medieval citadel into a pedestrian area.

Cars can be parked in the Down Town.

If you arrive with your personal car / coach / minibus in the city there are 2 car parks available for them: Sigma Square (city center) and Anton Pann street (at the barrier from climbing into the citadel)

Arrival by car

Sighişoara is on the road E 60, which connects Amsterdam with Constanţa. This road crosses the center of Sighişoara. The citadel hill is very visible and the signs easily guide you into it.
