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.

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.

The tower is in a nice area for walking and the view from above is nice. The walk up is not too difficult.

We walked underneath this very impressive tower, built by locals to warn of fires by trumpet blast! Slightly spoilt during our visit by a very large pink banner advertising the upcoming music festival!
