The Wietenberg culture was a Middle Bronze Age archeological culture in Central Transylvania that roughly dates to 2200–1600/1500 BCE. Represented a local variant of Usatovo culture and was replaced by Noua culture. Its name was coined after the eponymic Wietenberg Hill near Sighișoara.
People of this culture traded with the Mycenaeans. Burial sites contain bronze battle axes and maces with stone heads. Pottery consists of amphorae with spiral and meandric ornament.
By 1964 about 200 settlements of this culture were discovered.
