Saxon Trek is about discovering the Saxon villages step by step, walking from village to village in search of their personality, discovering their history, culture, traditions and gastronomy. In 2019 we started this journey with a one week of walking in a loop, from one village to another, a 150 kilometers walk, with forests, hills, small villages and quiet all around us. Last year we decided to change a bit the format and instead of a loop, we decided to walk from Sibiu to Sighișoara.Continue reading
The 4th day of our Saxon Trek was the longest one and marked passing from the Hârtibaciu Valley to the Târnavelor Plateau which is also known as the „Weinland”. Villages like Biertan, Richiș and Saroș were famous for the terraced vineyards they had and for the local wine they produced called “Neuburger”. We walked 26 kilometers from Dealu Frumos to Mălâncrav.
Saxon Trek meant one week of walking from one Transylvanian village to another, a 150 kilometers ride in total – with forests, hills, small villages and quiet all around us. We’ve been flirting with this idea for a couple of years now, mainly because we like hikes, walks, treks (basically anything that has to do with moving our feet for many hours during the day) and also because we are in love with the Saxon villages of Transylvania and with everything that has to do with their history, culture, traditions and gastronomy. So what better way to discover them than on foot?
