Fire Tower (Tuztorony), Sopron

Observation Deck
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. Add Fire Tower (Tuztorony) to your Sopron travel itinerary, and discover new vacation ideas by using our Sopron tourist route planner.

  • Fire Tower you see from all sides, a stately building. Standing in the middle of "the history of the city" with walls around and centuries-old beautiful House. We just looked, didn't get in, but there are museums to visit.

  • Nice exhibition of the old city walls and the history in combination with the entrance to the tower. Once at the top you have a nice overview of Sopron. A small entry fee matures but.

  • I love Sopron. It's a city with a particular light and full of museums. Unfotunately I went to the tourist office close to the tower where 4 young workers should have have me some information! I just wanted to know some information about thermal bath in Sopron and if it was like Bükfűrdo, how much was the price.. ..: they answered me that we were not in Bük but in Sopron! Then I asked some info about other monuments in Sopron but they gave me a map sayin' "sorry"! I tried speaking german but they just spoke hungarian. Europe adieu!
  • A nice historic place in Sopron I have just seen outside. Beside it is nice I have no special emotions against it.
