Observation Deck Tourist Spot
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.

  • Interesting history in an amazing city next to the austrian border. Fantastic view to the city and amazing landscape from the tower.
  • Good place to look around but not worth much money. You can have a look around from surrounding high buildings for free.
  • Nice place, I'd recommend it to anyone who's in Sopron.
  • Stunning views of the city and countryside. Well worth the climb.
  • Best historical place in city, but not ideal for tall people.
