Don't miss the chance to visit Fire Tower (Tuztorony), one of the city's most notable landmarks. Built upon ancient Roman foundations, the base of the tower was a part of the city's walls and served as one of its gateways. After a major reconstruction in the 17th century, the tower obtained its current shape. When it was in use, guards on top of the tower had the job of watching for fires and approaching armies, and then notifying citizens of both. At the viewing platform, you too can admire the panoramas of the city and surrounding region. Various displays spread over multiple levels tell the story of the tower's history. To climb to the top you have to navigate quite a few steps, so this might not be well suited for visitors with mobility issues.

  • Nice views of the city. It is worth visiting. Late in the evening. The sunset from the top of the tower is particularly beautiful.

  • The ascent of the Tower will pay off whether you're in for a whole day or Soproni you need from Lake Neusiedl. There is an interesting view of the old town and the surrounding hills, but don't expect anything breathtaking again, either you are not disappointed. But this is not just about the prospect, because on the way up is a few rooms and the exhibition mainly historical photographs and drawings of the city, which makes the visit more rewarding.

  • It was interesting to have the ascent of the Tower, as it is more level, different exhibitions, information about the past of Sopron. The old mixed with the modern world a bit, which makes it even more special. Wonderful panorama can be seen moving up and körbesétálva, tériszonyosok take care! :)

  • A nice walk through the old quarter around the fire Tower; Is it even worth to come and more intense to look at. Was nice and easy to reach along the cycle paths.
