Nice view of the historic Sopron

It´s really worth to go up. The price is ok. You have a beautiful view of the historic Sopron. The stairs and the space inside is small so only go up if you´re not claustrophobic.

Nice view from up there but entrance fee its too much for that to be honest, but at least it has a panoramic view from the top of the tower.

The renovational work was fantastic in the tower. The underground Roman ruins are interesting and the visitor area reminds me of the Notre Dame's underground exhibition in Paris. The visitor center is modern with an elevator and a shop, but there is not a restroom in it however. Absolute worth it to climb the stairs to the top. The view... More

We visited the Fire Tower on a lark. The history of the tower is quite interesting and you have to go to the top. We did it right before sundown. The view is spectacular! We stayed until after dark and the view was even better. The lights of Sopron and those of Austria on the horizon were almost hypnotic. A... More

Climb the stairs (116) and you will see the splendid view on the city of spires. The admission is not expensive, 1150HUF for an adult. When climbing the stairs look at the walls when the tower history is decribed.

If you visit Sopron, you will visit the Fire Tower, this is something what is known by everybody. You can climb up on stairs or use the elevator, you will enjoy a nice view from the top.

It's definitely worth a trip up the fire tower to see the 360 views over the city. It was 1150 ft per person (approx. Half price for students). It's a short climb up the narrow staircases to the viewing platform of the tower (you can't actually get to the very top) and there are a fair amount of pictures with... More

Not so far from our hotel during our walk, we found this beautiful tower at a picturesque square with many restaurants and Caffé house.

This tower is located in the city centre in the midst of Roman structure. There is a walkway that takes you throughout the area, even through restaurants outdoor cafes. If you are able walk up to the top-there is a million dollar view of the surrounding landscape of house, churches and agricultural plains. Enjoy!
