The basics

The Bridge of Lies features on most city tours, with visitors often invited to cross the path to reveal their honest intentions. It’s said that the bridge will creak when a lie is told, so it’s worth testing it out while posing for pictures on the scenic overpass. Located so close to the Lutheran Cathedral and Piata Mare, the bridge is an easy stop on a walking tour, with some multi-day packages including a stroll through Sibiu as part of a wider Transylvanian itinerary.
