Kufstein Fortress, Kufstein

(4.4/5 based on 380+ reviews on the web)
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.

  • Cool place with a cool view over the city. Definately worth a visit when you're done skiing.
  • Lots of history. Stories well illustrated. Free organ recital excellent value. Views aplenty centre of town.
  • Very impressing! It is much bigger than it looks! Very good idea was to create an app with voice descriptions of some places. What was missing was english descriptions of some posters. They were only in German so it turned out that in some places I only walked and looked for images as I didn't understand what descriptions says.
  • Huge castle in the center of town, with plenty to see inside including a museum and a beautiful organ. Also has great views of the town and surrounding area since it is on top of a hill in the center of everything.
  • Worth a visit if you're there.
