  • Wort a bist. Beautiful views into the mountains and Kufstein. In general loved the old architecture. Was a throwback into old times!  more »
  • The guide books suggest an hour for the visit, but we spent longer. The lunchtime organ concert was brilliant and we enjoyed the various displays around different parts of the castle.  more »
  • 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.
