Fire Tower (Tuztorony) / Firewatch Tower located at the northern end of the Main Square is the symbol of Sopron. The tower acquired its present form with its Baroque. Today is the famous place tourist visit for this city.

English version is below. A torony és a museum a kiállítással nagyon érdekes volt számunkra. A gyerkőcök is imádták a lépcsőzést. :-) The tower with the museum and the exhibition was very interesting for us. We liked it. The kids loved the stairs. :-)

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

If you visit Sopron you must go up to the Fire Tower. Amazing 360 degree view. At night it looks like a lighthouse. Don't miss it.

The walk up the old staircase is worth the admission of a bit less than $2. An incredibly narrow staircase leans to a 360 degree balcony overlooking the old City. Tip - don't miss going down to see the Roman ruin and Spice Road. Free

Sopron has done a lot to improve its appearance in the last 10 years. The Fire Tower now stands out as a landmark. You can climb up to see the rest of the city center for 4€ per person. Do not be surprised if you...More

We stayed in a hotel with secure parking and did not see public car parks. The streets are mainly narrow so off-road parking could be a problem. It is a lovely place, and there must be parking but I can't help tell you... More
