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.

    The fortress of Kufstein is a great preserved and well-kept facility with many interesting and beautiful Ausstellungen.Ein lift you moves up if you do not want to run or you can. You can learn much about the history. (Torture chamber, Cannon square, herb garden, etc.) Restaurant is also available inside the fortress. A visiting the fortress is highly recommended because it occurs almost everywhere to have. The views from the facility on the mountains and the Inn is super.

    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!
