Kufstein Fortress Reviews
Άριστα διατηρημένο, με πολλούς χώρους που λειτουργούν σαν μουσείο, υπάρχει δυνατότητα ξενάγησης. Η ανάβαση γίνεται με ειδικό ανελκυστήρα και συμπεριλαμβάνεται στο εισητήριο εισόδου. more »Excellently maintained, with many venues that function as a museum, there is a possibility of guided tour. The ascent is carried out with a special lift and is included in the entrance ticket.

We had the dog with it and the castle is particularly dog friendly. There is actually only 1 inside space where the dog is not allowed to enter, but in all other spaces. The lift up is very convenient and you are within a minute above/below. We were out of season so it was pleasantly quiet.
Too bad the site was closed to the public, when we arrived, but Kufstein is a nice town with a lot of little shops with various curiosities. The Fortress is also used as a public place to view movies on their big screen and the view over the city is absolutely stunning.
Kids loved it more than all other castles we've been. The museum is really interesting amd there are cool hidden ways around the castle. The price is cheep.
