Fire Tower (Tuztorony), Sopron

Don't miss the chance to visit Fire Tower (Tuztorony), one of the city's most notable landmarks. Built upon ancient Roman foundations, the base of the tower was a part of the city's walls and served as one of its gateways. After a major reconstruction in the 17th century, the tower obtained its current shape. When it was in use, guards on top of the tower had the job of watching for fires and approaching armies, and then notifying citizens of both. At the viewing platform, you too can admire the panoramas of the city and surrounding region. Various displays spread over multiple levels tell the story of the tower's history. To climb to the top you have to navigate quite a few steps, so this might not be well suited for visitors with mobility issues. A visit to Fire Tower (Tuztorony) represents just the start of the adventure when you use our Sopron road trip website to plot your vacation.

  • Excellent views. 2 euros to enter and climb. Low head room and spiral stairs make it a fun experience  more »
  • The tower stands in a lovely square and the view of the city is great, especially on a sunny day. Be prepared for quite a few steps and a narrow stairwell, but when you get to the top, it's great.  more »

  • This is a great place to start your tour in Sopron since you can see almost anything form here. It's the ticket to go up to the fire tower but not so expansive. Recommend choosing your time wisely since it could get very over crowed in peak hour. View is amazing but not that much to read.
  • Piece of Sopron's history. It's in a very good shape but still has its antique feeling. There are old paintings/drawings of the city inside on how its face has changed over the years. And of course the view on Sopron from up there is amazing and the ticket is rather cheap as well.
