A visit to traditional shepherds makes a perfect day out. Take a trip back in time and spend a day walking in the meadows of Târnava Mare or enjoy a horse-drawn cart ride up to the hills and see the sheep being milked.

It is the ideal place to enjoy a traditional Saxon picnic while the cheese is made for you to sample and taste. This will be a memorable part of your holiday learning about a traditional way of life that co-exists with nature. This type of sheep cheese production in Transylvania is a tradition that has remained unchanged for hundreds of years and is intimately linked with village society, local customs and the management of the spectacular wildflower rich grasslands of the area.

Your visit can be booked through Saschiz Tourist Information Centre.
