Do I have to buy the tickets in advance?
No - there will always be enough tickets at the box office for you to go to RITTER-FEST.
Do I have to come dressed in medieval garb?
No - of course not. Every visitor is welcome. Experience shows that most visitors come in "civilian clothes".
Can I come dressed in medieval garb?
A clear: YES. Many insiders and friends of the medieval scene come in medieval garb. If you enjoy history, I dare you. Of course, those in costume also get a small reduction on the entrance fee.
Do people dressed in medieval garb get a discount on admission?
Yes. Because we are loyal to the medieval scene - just as the medieval scene is loyal to us. Simply a small gesture of gratitude.
When will the programme (finally) be available?
The programme for the people will be posted on this website approximately one week before the festival begins and will of course be handed out to all visitors in printed form.
Is there an ATM / cash machine at the fortress?
Nein. Die meisten Händler sowie die Festungsgastronomie akzeptieren allerdings Kartenzahlung, Applepay und Googlepay.
Is the Ritter-Fest barrier-free?
Basically yes - although the fortress complex was built on a steep rock. To get to the fortress, use the panorama lift at the main entrance. From there there is also a special lift to the gastronomy in the castle garden and the local history museum. There are also toilets here. Please contact our colleagues in the catering department if you need help. From here, your journey through the Knights' Festival is exclusively downhill. You will first come to the Red Dragon Tavern, the Elisabeth Battery and the War Powder Magazine. Feel free to linger here for a while, enjoying exciting knight fights, colourful lansquenet camps and a little refreshment. Now pass a small market area and descend into the shady herb garden where jugglers and many other attractions await you. The last stop on your visit is the large Josefsburg (fortress arena) with the main stage. There is a barrier-free toilet here, please also contact our colleagues here. For the way home, use the Kaiserjägerweg, which always takes you safely downhill back to Kufstein.
Can I come with the pram?
Yeah, sure. Gladly. If necessary, see the section on barrier-free access for the easy way through the Ritter Fest.
Is there a discount for XYZ?
In general, all prices are very transparent on this website. For special enquiries regarding groups, etc., please contact the Kufstein Fortress ticket office directly, telephone +43 5372 66525.
Gilt meine Eintrittskarte für den Wiedereinlass / Kann ich kurz ins Tal / … zu meinem Auto? / … zum Geldautomaten?
Grundsätzlich ist der Wiedereinlass mit der Eintrittskarte aufgrund der AGB der Festung Kufstein nicht möglich. Wenn der Ansturm gerade nicht riesig ist und sie ein freundliches Wort VOR Verlassen der Festung mit dem Kassenpersonal reden, ist aber durchaus im Einzelfall eine Ausnahme möglich. Eine Garantie hierfür ist diese FAQ jedoch nicht.
