Hiking near Kufstein, Kaiser Mountains, Tyrol
SOURCE: Osterreich Werbung/Niederstrasser, courtesy of Austrian National Tourist Office, used with permission.
Kufstein, the second largest city in Tyrol, is on the river Inn, in the Wilder Kaiser mountains, near the German border.
Its main attraction is Kufstein Fortress, dating from the 13th century, an imposing structure that overlooks the city, which now houses the City Museum of Kufstein and is also used for concerts and meetings. It is reached via the panoramic “Kaiser Maximilian” railway, which takes you right from the city centre to the fortress.
Other local attractions include: boat trips on the river Inn; Romerhofgasse street, a historic alleyway renowned for its wine bars; the sewing machine museum, the "Wilder Kaiserlift" which takes you from Kufstein to the Brentenjoch in the magnificent nature protection area of the Kaiser mountains; and several summer and winter resorts in the surrounding area.
