Introducing Kufstein

In the 1970s, Karl Ganzer sang the praises of Kufstein in his hit yodelling melody ‘Perle Tirols’ (The Pearl of Tyrol) and rightly so. Resting at the foot of the mighty limestone Kaisergebirge and crowned by a fortress, Kufstein’s backdrop is picture-book stuff. Control of the town was hotly contested by Tyrol and Bavaria through the ages until it finally became Austrian property in 1814.
