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. To visit Kufstein Fortress on your trip to Kufstein, use our Kufstein trip planner.

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.
