The Goldsmith’s Market had a number of other names over the years.Between 1496 and 1947, it was named Fingerling Square, „finger” in German means… finger. It is said that thieves who were caught stealing had a finger cut right here in the market. At the top end, on the right side of the Little Square, next to the fresco building at no. 24, there is the Tower of the Goldsmiths Gate, dating from the 13th Century, and the steps of the Gate’s passageway, which connect the Little Square to the Goldsmiths Square. Through this gate, access was made to the old city, and now it linksthe Little Square to the Square that reminds the goldsmiths’ guild. The pasageway reminds of 15th-century architecture and it is a place where you have the feeling of travelling back in time. Your imagination starts to travel and you see yourself wondering around under the red brick arches, then you go down the stairs of the passageway which are bordered on both sides by houses dating back to the fifteenth, sixteenth and eighteenth centuries. Famed jeweler craftsman Hugo Ludecke lived in one of these houses. The buildings still have neo-Gothic elements which were later included in 18th-century constructions. As the steps of the passageway descend, the Goldsmith market opens. If you want to discover the historical part of Sibiu, Goldsmith Square is a must.
Located in Goldsmiths Square, in a place with a rich history, “Artisans Boutique Villa” guesthouse combines the historical past with the elegant present. The building itself is a historical monument, dating from 17th – 18th Century, and still contains architectural elements from that period.
The main hall is designed with sumptuous arches as a mysterious and surprising path, at the end of which a new world with medieval influences unveils to the curious visitor. The main wall of the front desk area tells a story on its own: layers over layers of paint, wallpaper, plaster, rust and bricks, dampened by water, remind of all the generations that have passed here, each leaving a trace on the wall. This area is designed as a small terrace overlooking the big square of Sibiu, where you can quietly enjoy breakfast, but also a cup of coffee and a warm and tempting croissant.
