Mountaineering & culinary art With its 18,000 inhabitants, the municipality of Kufstein is the second largest town in Tyrol. In the midst of Kaisertal, surrounded by the landmark mountains of Pendling, Maistaller and Thierberg as well as the Kaiser Mountains, Kufstein offers endless opportunities for hiking along with cultural highlights such as a visit to the historical fortress, which features the the world’s largest open-air organ. Situated right on the Austrian border, only 30 minutes away by car, Kufstein is a popular destination for those living in or visiting the Rosenheim area. From hiking, canyoning and rafting to family excursions to the annual Knights Festival, Kufstein offers leisure opportunities to suit any taste. Outdoors Kufstein and outdoor experiences are two terms that are hardly separable. For a perfect way to start the day: Why not go for a hiking or mountain-bike tour of Kala Alm in Thierseetal? During a snack with panoramic views, you can re-charge while enjoying the spectacular surroundings. And should you lack motivation to hike all the way back down in winter, you can always opt for a toboggan or bobsleigh ride on the illuminated toboggan run—great fun for kids and adults! Action lovers are in good hands at ActiveSpirit. Guided mountain hikes as well as mountain-bike, canyoning, cave and white-water rafting tours ensure a serious adrenaline boost: Canyoning takes you through water gorges and down waterfalls. During cave tours, your dexterity and willpower will be rewarded with breath-taking insights into the world of dripstones. And when going rafting you won’t stay dry for long! A further insider tip is Brixen im Thale, near Kufstein, which offers a variety of leisure opportunities in both summer and winter. Besides skiing and snowboarding in the mountains around Kufstein, you can participate in snow hikes or go for a cross-country ski run. Following a long day on the slopes, you can relax in the local indoor swimming pool. And during summer, head out to one of the many lakes, choose from nine (!) golf courses or follow a variety of hiking tracks. The region leaves no wish unfulfilled. Food & Drinks Largely traditional but never provincial, Kufstein cuisine above all offers Tyrolean specialities against an always impressive mountain backdrop. From elegant to original to home-style, you can find nearly everything in the local gastronomy. The tavern of the Kufstein Fortress, for example, allows you to dine as in the Age of Chivalry. The Kufsteiner Vorsilvester, celebrated on the day before the actual turn of the year, is a particularly special event. Live music, waltz sounds as well as a sparkling fireworks show make this evening an unforgettable experience. Stollen 1930 also allows for an exceptional evening. On the location’s website it says that guests feel like being “transported back to the time when everyone in Paris, New York and London was still playing the chansons of the 30’s”. In the basement, decorated in gold, 528 different Gins are offered; nothing can stop an exceptional evening. Should you appreciate an Alpine panorama and prefer a cosy outdoor atmosphere, don’t fail to visit Aschinger Alm. Meat dishes from local hunting as well as cheese dishes made of pasture milk from local grazing cows bear the “taste of the surrounding meadows”. Given the snug chimney fire in the main room, the place is well worth a visit both in winter as well as in summer. Culture When visiting the city’s landmark, the Kufstein Fortress, its three different museums, its musically inspiring concerts or the Heldenorgel (large organ), guests can feel as if they were back in the medieval times. Gourmands will find carefully selected fresh and regional products at Kufstein’s Genussmarkt (pleasure market) every Friday from 9 am to 2 pm, from March to November. While buying healthy specialities for your home kitchen, you can also sample traditional dishes on the spot, be they fruit and vegetables, sausages and cheese, spices, bread, yoghurt, honey or various types of tea. An another worthwhile sight in Kufstein is the sewing machine museum, Madersperger, located in the house where the inventor of the sewing machine, Josef Georg Madersperger, was born.
