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.

  • Beauty of the City Kufstein. Very good place to make 1 full day trip
  • From the fortress overlooking the whole city. There is the opportunity to walk or to take 2 elevators (panoramic elevator made of glass and a mountain lift deep in the Interior of the Hill). Admission is acceptable, above is a museum as well as several green areas where you can sit comfortably and enjoy a picnic. The castle is enlivened by events such as concerts, operas, Knights Festival and Christmas market several times in the year.
