It is worth the time spent to know the history of this fortress. At the entrance of the fortress, they have a concert daily at 12 noon. Missed that concert but the arrangements that they have made seems to be very tempting to attend the show. If you are at Kufstein do not miss visiting this fortress.

The fortress is well maintained and easily accessible from town. Once there, be prepared for some steep walking. The views from the top of the fortress are very nice. The town below is a pleasant place to walk around for a while.

Easy to get up to with lift. Many exhibits in English. Spectacular 360 degree view of surrounding area. Definitely a must when in or driving through Kufstien.

I red about this place on our guide, it was described as "the gem of tirol". The village is quite nice and picturesque, especially the famous Romerhofgasse, but still, in my opinion is not that beautiful, (I honestly prefer Innsbruck). On the contrary, the fortress it's impressive. It is located in the heart of the village. The ticket office is... More

Lots of interesting exhibits and many levels to explore. A superb view of the valley below. If you're in the high season get there early before the crowds.

We went up to the fortress using the stairs , stopping a few time around take advantage of the view this places gives over the city. In the fortress itself , there are the permanent and also the changing exhibitions, which cover a variety of topics and... More

The atmosphere was great. With nice parts of getting us into the mediëval spirit. Altough the food was great, there was not plenty. I think the price was to high for the food offerd

Long wanted to visit this fortress. Very accessible. Need to be able to walk uphill a bit. Well thought out displays well arranged with clear explanations. Good cafe. Famous organ. Good to see its 'guts'.
