The St Michael’s church is the oldest parish church of Sopron. According to the patterns of the early Middle Ages it was built in the cemetery, outside of the fortified city precincts.

Originally it was built in Romanesque style in the 13th century in honour of St Michael and it was rebuilt to Gothic style in the 15th century. In the 19th century it was reconstructed to its current Neo-Gothic shape. It contains also statues and murals from the 15th century.

It can be seen the medieval features at the bottom part of the tower on the west frontage, but the frame of the entrance is from the 19th century – like the upstairs with the big stone lattice and lancet windows.
