Downtown Veszprém has been renovated to a magnificent result recently, thus beautiful walks await visitors among protected buildings. The castle district with its palacesmuseums and churches is a pedestrian street, and it’s the best preserved Baroque street of the Hungary. You can enter the castle district from Óváros tér, which is a good place to begin your sightseeing thanks to its lovely buildings.

The 48-metre-tall Tűztorony (Fire Tower) originally served defensive purposes: from the top, they could keep an eye on the entire city and spot any fire at once. Climbing up to the tower is worthwhile, as it offers an amazing view of the castle district and the downtown.
