Explore the underground tunnels and museum exhibits at Kufstein Fortress, which served as a prison for political dissidents during Austro-Hungarian rule. Nowadays the fortress houses the city museum and hosts concerts and other events year-round. Ride the glass elevator to the top of the fortress to access the museum exhibits, labeled with both German and English explanations, and enjoy views of the city. Listen to a concert on the massive Heroes Organ in the entrance courtyard at scheduled times throughout the day while enjoying a meal at one of the picnic benches or the on-site cafe. Be sure to check the website for concert times and opening hours.

  • Very well kept fortress in beautiful landscape. Try to visit during medieval festival weekend :)
  • Kufstein is easily reached by train from Munich or Salzburg and is an ideal day trip. There are a number of pleasant restaurants in the Altstadt beside the river.
  • Almost the whole fortress is open to explore and there are several different museums on the grounds for one entry price. The views over Kuffstein are amazing!
  • Not much to see in the Fortress, but the view on Kufstein city and rocky valley is stunning!
  • All-in-one museum. Stunning city views from the top of the hill.
