Meet the traveling carpenter Christian Rummel
Our next stop in our expedition to discover the old Transylvanian crafts takes place in the village of Richiș. Here we will visit the workshop of Christian Rummel, a young man who at the age of 22 decided to leave his native Germany and move to Transylvania. Here, he managed to bring back to life an old carpenter's shop where he created real works of art, using old Saxon customs.
Traditional lunch like only in Transylvania
After all this work we have to get the reward too! This comes in the form of a traditional Transylvanian lunch at one of the most beautiful households in this area. Here we will join a feast that includes only traditional dishes. So, you will discover why the Transylvanian cuisine is famous all over the world. We wrap everything together with a brandy, a wine or/and a glass of natural homemade syrup.
