empty town
Aug 2021
Well remained medieval town, interesting to look - but it is absolutely empty. No active attractions, no non-hungarian information. Several museums - don't know what were inside.
Navigator leads to town center, but impossible to return - road is closed, not available any information on English.

Beautiful old town right on the Austrian-Hungarian border
Aug 2020
A jewel box on the edge of western Hungary, right on the Austrian-Hungarian border, a bicycle ride away from Eisenstadt, the capital of Burgenland. The old town is just beautiful, rather small, easy to see everything in a day, and still relax and have a nice dinner. Local wine is excellent. The birthplace of Franz (Ferenc) Liszt is a short ride away (now in Austria). Alexandre Lamfalussy, the father of the euro, lived and went to high school in Sopron. Do you need any more reason to take a small detour if you visit Vienna or Budapest? If so, check out the bike routes around the Neusiedler See (Fertő tó) and the Eszterházy palace in Fertőd. 😍

SO interesting
Dec 2019
We love walking around old town Sopron. Highly recommend going up in the Fire Tower, visiting the various churches, eating the local food, going into the grocery on the ring around the Old Town, seeing the old Roman Ruins, going in Dec. so you can see the Christmas Market. It's all fun and interesting, like stepping back in time.

Beautiful......
Dec 2019
Went by train to spend the day in Sopron and we were t disappointed. Lovely old buildings narrow cobbled streets , beautiful churches . We went in December and only a few locals around ! The square was decorated for Christmas and a huge Christmas tree,. Very cold but so glad we visited, only E42 return for the four of us ! Took about 80 minutes but saw some amazing scenery and sights.

A city packed with history
Dec 2019 • Family
Sopron may not have the buzzle of a big city, but as a border land city of Hungarian and German speaking people it has witnessed many historical turns and has a lot to offer. The old city is well preserved and offers a lot more feel of the medieval city structure due to the preserved parts of the moat than many other old cities.

Gorgeous town
Oct 2019
Sopron is a gorgeous town just over the Austrian border. We stopped their on our way to Felsoors. Full of character buildings. The streets are paved beautifully and their is a lot of regeneration going on. A very pretty town with much architecture to enjoy.

A Very Nice Old Town
Sep 2019
Not much more I can add that the other reviewers have covered so I will try to add some useful info. The old town area is about a 10 min walk from the train station. As you go out the main entrance there is a main road a bit to the left. Get on in and keep waking until you get there. You will pass some interesting churches on the way. There are not a lot of public wc but don't fret, just go into any restaurant (there are many) and ask, they are very accommodating but may ask you to pay. The walk up to the top of the watchtower is worth is if you can handle the stairs. Surprisingly not much shopping to be done. Equally surprising is the Roman ruins which I did not expect to find among the medieval ruins. Just talk the time to wander, the area is not huge but well preserved. I took this side trip as a day trip from Vienna and it was well worth it. Train cost about $16r/t and took about 90 minutes (direct from Veinna no change of trains) with excellent views of the Austrian country side (Sopron is just across the border in Hungary) as well as Austrian wine country. Note: we had a difficult time finding anyone who accepted Euros as Hungary has their own currency but had no problem using plastic. If you found this review helpful please hit the helpful button.

Sopron historical center is must see if you are biking around Neusiedler sea.
Narrow streets, nice churches, marvelous squares,beauty pedestrian zone,lot of local pubs when you can absorb and enjoy the town spirit.
Nice cycling trail for Fertorakos to Sopron (for those bikers who stays overnight there)

Nice place

Nice area with churches and a few restaurants. We had a late evening meal. We lived at a hotel nearby and the fish soup was excellent.
