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.

  • 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.

  • Nice and beautiful castle! Easy to reach. 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.
