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

This tower is symbolic for Sopron and was used to alert the community in case of a fire. Now it just gives you an amazing view! The passage underneath is pretty for pictures as well.
