Stop over in Ghimbav


Ghimbav town (Weidenbach, Vidombák) is situated in the North-Western part of Brasov County, on the national highway DN1/E68 and the railway road connecting Brasov to Fagaras. Because of the beginning of the works for the construction of an airport in this area, Ghimbav has become more and more attractive for tourists and investors. Making the best use of its potential, Ghimbav has the advantage of being located at the crossroads of the most important tourist areas of Brasov County: the City of Brasov, Poiana Brasov resort, Postavaru, Cristianu Mare and Piatra Mare Mountains, Predeal resort, Rasnov Citadel and the town of Zarnesti (from here you can climb to Piatra Mare Mountains).

The presence of the Teutonic Knights

"The promotion of the tourist potential of Ghimbav town makes the object of several projects carried out by the Town Hall. The town had an interesting history because its founding is connected to the 14 years of the presence of Teutonic Knights in Tara Barsei, followed by the colonization of the Saxons. The most attractive thing about this town is the way its inhabitants succeeded in preserving the costumes worn by the ancestors and the Saxon customs and traditions. The most important cultural event is the Day of the Town which is a good opportunity to make the best use of the local tourist potential and also to bring to light the recent history, as Ghimbav is famous for its aeronautic industry. That is why flight demonstrations are always included in the most important events carried out locally, much to the delight of the public," said Mr. Toma Dorel, Mayor of Ghimbav.

The Days of Ghimbav

The Days of Ghimbav, which is a celebration of the city, has once again attracted a lot of tourists this year. The event took place in a large area, provided by the Town Hall. For locals this is a celebration of the local traditions and customs and a good chance to revive the historical past of the town. The festival is organized in the first weekend after Saints Peter and Paul's Day and ends with concerts and fireworks.
