Kufstein:Tyrol's pearl on the Inn
The medieval town of Kufstein and festival town of Erl
Kufstein - a town and eight villages invite you on a holiday packed with experiences. The town with medieval centre and impressive fortress is situated just a few kilometres away from your Hotel Mariasteinerhof.
The fortress town of Kufstein includes the villages Bad Häring, Ebbs, Erl, Langkampfen, Niederndorf, Niederndorferberg, Schwoich and Thierseetal – there is a whole load to discover here! Erl is famous for its passion plays that have been held regularly since 1613. Works by Wagner, Beethoven and Strauss have been awaiting you in a breathtaking setting at the "Tiroler Festspiele Erl" festival since 1998. Langkampfen, the village on the sunny side of the Inn valley, offers high-altitude flights and swimming fun: the Stimmersee lake guarantees sunny swimming fun and anyone who fancies a foray into the Tyrolean air should visit the gliding airfield in Langkampfen. Visit the Alps' blond horses, the Halfinger horses, at the horse breeding centre in Ebbs.
Swimming fun in Kufstein
Water babies really get their money's worth in Kufstein: the forest swimming pool in Niederndorf, the "Bananensee" biotope swimming lake in Schwoich and the natural swimming lake in Thiersee guarantee swimming fun surrounded by idyllic mountain pastures and stunning nature. Anyone who has opted for the swimming lake in Thiersee can hike along the "Cinematic history of Thiersee" adventure path that leads directly along the lake to the film studio after swimming in the lake.
Kufstein:an experience for all the senses
Seeing, hearing, smelling, tasting, touching – every one of your senses is indulged in Kufstein. A special "Sinnfonie" awaits you at the Riedel glass factory. Glassware for fine drops of wine has been blown out of quartz, lime and alkalis here since 1756. You experience the most exciting side of glass in a multimedia show.
Culinary highlights await you in the famous Römerhofgasse: the "Auracher Löchl", a restaurant at the foot of the fortress whose regular guests have included famous personalities such as the freedom fighter Andreas Hofer and the mountaineering icon Luis Trenker. Nowadays, Hansi Hinterseer, Boris Becker and Helmut Kohl are frequent visitors as they all appreciate the outstanding Tyrolean cooking and charming flair at "Auracher Löchl".
