The church in the centre of the village is one of the most important examples of fortress churches in the world. In the centre of the village is a renowned restaurant, providing versions of local and international fayre. The village is surrounded by vineyards. There is a wine cellar on the edge of the village, as well as a factory making cheese.
Biertan is in the centre of the Tarnava Mare region of southern Transylvania. The village is an excellent base for making trips to the surrounding villages and towns. The village is a short taxi journey from Sighisoara, the most well-preserved medieval town in Europe, but being calmer and quiter than Sighisoara provides a more relaxing place to be based.
