Fire Tower (Tuztorony), Sopron

4.5
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. A visit to Fire Tower (Tuztorony) represents just the start of the adventure when you use our Sopron road trip website to plot your vacation.

  • Besides the symbol of the city, the view is nice and interesting. You get back to past centuries and saw also (at least us) Alps from there, old city, hill with the mill, etc.... really recommendable  more »
  • Who cannot leave the Sopron comes from tűztornyot. In the basement of ancient artifacts and high-quality exhibitions on the first floor of the Tower on top of the whole city is in sight. It is worth climbing the many stairs

  • A 365 degree view of the sui city justifies the high steps to get there. Foundations to visit at the bottom of the tower. Very warm welcome.

  • A good view over Sopron. Quite exited over the steep narrow stairs thou. The view were worth the climb.
  • The main attraction in Sopron, so actually not to be missed. The view is okay but it's a bit expensive for Hungarian standards and the staff seems to be unfriendly and incompetent.
  • 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.
  • Best historical place in city, but not ideal for tall people.
