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.

  • Allow a couple of hours to visit this wonder medieval castle. It is so large and what a fantastic spot that it was built on.

  • A clashing point from the old times between Tyrol and Bavaria. There are some interesting displays and videos (with English subtitles!), but some areas are a bit dated and badly lit. At noon every day you can hear the great organ playing and they hold events from time to time. If you're in the Kufstein area, it's worth a visit.
  • As soon as you walk out of the train station, you can see this representative building of Kufstein. It has a very distinctive appearance. When I visited, there was even the sound of music playing at 12:00, which is very special!!!
