THE FORTRESS

Kufstein - Tyrol


WINNER : Around Kufstein/Kufstein/Austria/Germany & Austria 2009 Galleries


The fortification, then owned by the bishops of Regensburg, was documented for the first time in 1205. From 1313 onwards Kufstein Castle belonged to the Dukes of Bavaria. In 1504 Emperor Maximilian I besieged and conquered Kufstein. He then ordered the castle to be newly built and expanded it to the size of a fortress. In 1703 and 1805 the Bavarians conquered the fortress which again came into Austrian ownership in 1814. It has belonged to the city of Kufstein since 1924.
