Fantastic view of the city. Keep in mind that you have to climb stairs. Go to the top of the symbol of the city.

This is a charming 17th century landmark in the ancient city walls of Sopron. Worth the climb up into the tower for the panoramic views over the city rooftops, which are wonderful, even on a very cold and windy winter day. The down side is that the charming museum is underneath the museum cafe, which seems to blast out cheap... More

You must see the Fire Tower in Sopron inside too, not forgetting to see it by night. You will never forget the experience.

Sopron is a beautiful city.. Haven't really been inside the fire tower coz there is so much more to see Kim Sopron... The buildings and vistas were quite a treat to the eye

There are different colors on the different levels at night so make sure you see it at night too. For the visit, better have a nice day to enjoy the view otherwise skip it - for us it was borderline too cold and windy. Last steps are very high. Entrance fee is about 3 euros with some package deal (about... More

We only viewed the tower from below as we wandered round the old part of this lovely city. There seem to be lovely vistas and interesting buildings every way you turn and this really is a city to savour slowly. If you haven' t been to Sopron you should put it on your "must do" list.

Only decided to visit as it was within walking distance of the hotel we were staying in. The entrance charge is minimal, The climb to the top is not particularly strenuous and the view from the top over Sopron is delightful.

Climb the tower, the steps aren't that bad. The view from the top is worth every stair. I had the tower to myself for almost 30 minutes and the scenic landscape (and breeze) is fantastic.

If you are tired to walk through the town, take 70 steps up the tower and enjoy the view. You also learn from the roman history and you can enjoy a nice coffeehouse ..

The stairs are worth the view of the city from the top. It is a very narrow staircase.... Make sure to see the Roman ruins in the bottom floor.
