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.

  • It is really an amazing experience. You see the movies on TV about mideval times, but to walk through a place where these things really happened is eye opening. All in the name of Christianity. A trip worth taking..
  • We experienced the Lichtfestival Kufstein. What a wonderful tour with so much detail to the history of the castle. Nice tourguides and just the best view of Kufstein.
