Kufstein in Tirol: An Untouched Beauty Spot
From a medieval fortress towering over a charming old town to a valley that can only be reached on foot, Kufsteinerland takes you back.
Until 2008, Kaisertal valley was Austria’s last inhabited valley without a road link. And even now, only locals are allowed to drive here – so you’ll arrive in the picturesque valley on foot, after climbing 300 steps. Every single step is worth it: The wild, untouched land. The thunderous gorges. The perfectly picturesque villages.
In Kufstein proper, another ancient marvel awaits: the fortress towering above the city centre, hundreds of years old. Its thick walls and arched ceilings tell of a time long before our own, and the red roofs and sloping meadows below will make you feel just a little bit like one of the castle’s inhabitants of old.
Make the most of your holiday with the local guest card, the KufsteinerlandCard which gives you free access to selected public transport, guided tours, the Kufstein Fortress, the Kaiserlift, and more.
