Kufstein Fortress is a historic castle that was first mentioned in 1205 as "Castrum Caofstein" and was then owned by the bishops of Regensburg. Duke Ludwig der Gebartete reinforced the fortifications in 1415. During the Landshut War of Succession in 1504, Emperor Maximilian I laid siege to the town and fortress of Kufstein, conquered it and had it expanded into a fortress.

In the 18th century, a fortress bridge existed Kufstein, but during the War of the Spanish Succession in 1703, Bavarian troops invaded Tyrol and captured the fortress. In 1704, however, they had to vacate again when the Tyrolean peasants rose up against the Bavarian occupation. The Peace of Pressburg in 1805 brought the fortress back under Bavarian rule, but in 1814 it fell to Austria when Napoleon's empire collapsed.
