Als Tourist in Kufstein ist die Festung auf alle Fälle einen Besuch wert. Es hat uns sehr gut gefallen. more »As a tourist in Kufstein, the fortress is definitely worth a visit. We liked it very much.
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.
