Kufstein is located directly on the mighty Inn River. Thanks to its strategic location, it controlled the trade routes leading to Germany. Its icon is a huge fortress standing on a rock high above the river. In addition, you will find beautifully painted Tyrolean houses here

View of the fortress

The beginning of the tour is ideal from Inn, where the bridge is perhaps the most beautiful view of the city fortress

View of the Inn

The inn is a really mighty river and, unlike the Danube, for example, it also has a beautiful „alpine“ color

The journey to the local fortress also begins in the square near the church
