On your way from Sibiu to Sighisoara (along kind of side road via Aginta) turn right from the road to the village towards the church you can see and don't get frightened when you find yourself literally off the beaten path. We left the car by the gate and went to see the graveyard. While walking aruond we saw a young man going towards us. It was Joachim- a very friendly local who provided us with information on local history, community etc. and let us into the church and up the tower (oh my God, if I had known that we would have to climb up the ladders!).
It was such a nice and informative visit that we regretted we stayed at the guest house because it occurred that Joachim and his wife also offer accommodation- like every Saxonian community in Romania.
