Jugendzentrum Seligstadt

 

Location & Route

 

Seligstadt/ Selistat (Rom.) lies in the southern part of Transylvania, in the heart of the Harbach-Highlands. This region is assigned to the Natura 2000 Protective Area due to its ethnic flora and fauna.

Seligstadt is best reached from Fogarasch/ Fǎgǎraş. It’s a 30 km drive towards north, over Bekokten/ Bǎrcut. If you come that way, the guesthouses are on the right side of the road, directly beside the church-fortress.

You can also reach Seligstadt from Schäßburg/ Sighisoara (45 km); in Henndorf/ Brǎdeni you have to turn in the direction of Retersorf/ Retiş. You have to allow extra time for both travel alternatives, the roads are partially in need of repair – good dampers are advisable. And be careful: there are sheep, goats and donkeys on the road!

The parsonage in Fogarasch offers a driving-service to those who want to take the journey from Fogarasch to Seligstadt. Timely request is asked for.
