Bike Touring Highlight
The fortress Kufstein towers over the Tyrolean district capital Kufstein as an unmistakable landmark and bears witness to the turbulent past of Kufstein as a border town between Tyrol and Bavaria. The fortress was first mentioned in 1205. Emperor Maximilian I conquered the castle in 1504 and had it expanded. Today, the Kufstein Fortress is a popular venue for theater and concert events, and every year is an impressive backdrop to the operetta summer Kufstein. With the modern panoramic lift, visitors can easily reach the fortress mountain. A special feature is the hero organ in the civic tower: It is the largest free-world in the world. Their play is heard daily in memory of all victims of armed conflict and warns for peace in the world.
