Picturesque alleys, lively squares and exciting personalities lift the centuries-old veil of the past and open up new perspectives on the present. The following can be explored at the 23 stations:

  • K - Kufstein stories bring to light entertaining, curious or personal facets of the town's history.
  • A star shines at particularly worth seeing places.

Three further stations lead to historical places far away from the center and entice with breathtaking views of the fortified town. These stations can be explored individually or as a supplement to the Historic City Trail in the city center. The following information refers to a circular route.

  • Hochwacht: 6,1km - 280hm - 2:00h (pink)
  • Thierberg: 7,4km - 250hm - 2:30h (purple)
  • Zeller Berg: 3,3km - 110hm - 1:00h (green)

There is also an interactive puzzle adventure on the Historic Town Trail: recapture Kufstein Fortress!

Join the green Inn, Emperor Maximilian I and a woolly little helper on a fictional historical adventure across the time-honored town. Solve tricky tasks and save the fortress from impending disaster.
On your way, you will also find the information boards of the Historical Town Trail, which provide you with additional information. The three stations outside the city are not part of the puzzle competition, but provide information about the exciting history of the respective places.
 
Start the puzzle fun here now.

The treasure map, which you can get at the starting board at the Marienbrunnen or at the Tourist Information at the Unterer Stadtplatz, provides you with further clues to solve the riddle. However, the puzzle can also be solved without this treasure map. 

May the journey through time begin!
