Sopron is located by the western border of Hungary, in the Alpine foothills, 60 km from Vienna and 220 km from Budapest. It was built amidst the Balf Hills between the Sopron Mountains and Lake Fertő, in the valley of Ikva Stream.
Sopron lies on two main roads of the Hungarian national network: road 84 in the direction of Lake Balaton and road 85 connecting Sopron with Győr and the villages in between. In order to make the ever increasing vehicular traffic safer and faster, construction of a town bypass is planned between Perezteg and Sopron.
From Austria there is a choice of two border crossings, Sopron/Klingenbach and Kópháza/ Deutschkreutz.
