Sura Sasului – Holiday in a Transylvanian Saxon Barn

Created with Sketch. Șura Sasului, Strada de Sus, Amnaș, Romania View on map


We rent only the entire Saxon’s Barn. Thus, our guests have access to all 4 bedrooms with private bathrooms and can enjoy freely the generous living room, together with the closest friends.

At Saxon’s Barn you will discover that each room tells a story and is unique in its own way. We tried to recreate the atmosphere of a Romanian Saxon house and we used decorations from the traditional households. Each bathroom is personalized with old objects from that period. You will gladly discover the old heating stove and the stone sink and you will feel you’ve travelled into time.

The living room was specially created for you and your friends. The evenings will be very long around the reconditioned oak table that seems to invite you to feel the forgotten natural textures and smells of the traditional dishes.

You can relax and enjoy the pure air of the area in the generous courtyard or on the back terrace.


History of the Romanian Saxons

The Saxons came from the Rhine and Moselle regions of Northern Europe–most from the German state of Saxony. They arrived in Transylvania–“land between the forests” in the mid-1100s, invited by the ruler of this Romanian land. They stayed in this hilly region for 850 years and named their lands Siebenburgen after the seven fortress cities they built to protect themselves and their towns. Over the centuries, the Saxons and their descendants not only farmed and protected the fertile lands between the forested Carpathian Mountains, but formed guilds and became wealthy traders. Respected for their skills and talents, the Saxons gained a degree of freedom previously unheard of in medieval Europe. In their adopted homeland, any Saxon could move up in society based on merit.

Today, nearly two hundred of their citadels stand in Romania as a tribute to their skills and courage. Their fortifications usually encircled churches, villages, peasant refuges, or military outposts. In southern Transylvania, their fortresses dot the countryside, mere minutes or, at most, a few hours apart.

Near Saxon’s Barn

Discover the fascinating Sibiu (the old Hermannstadt). Just half an hour away from Saxon’s Barn, the city of Sibiu is waiting for you. A city that no longer needs any presentation and that delights tourists all year round. Museums, markets, history and tales, all in one city. And the Christmas Market is just as famous as its Viennese counterpart.

Discover the wild Transylvania about which not enough stories have been written yet. With its breath-taking landscapes, rich history, mouth-watering dishes – all waiting to be discovered.

The lake Bâlea, the Bâlea Waterfall, the St. Michael Fortified Church from Cisnădioara, Alba Iulia Fortress, Pălținiș, Transalpina and many other objectives can be easily visited starting from Amnaș.
