Back then the song „Tirol’s pearl“ sung an anthem of praise to Kufstein. Today it is no different, except that the romantic little mediaeval town along the Inn developed to be a vibrant city with a rich cultural- & business live. Today it is known for its modern education institutions (University of Applied Science) and its extensive traditional and modern cultural offers.
In the center of the old town at the foot of the fortress mountain arises the cultural quarter Kufstein. At 5000m² a trendy city district is being built, including a hotel, a congress- and theatre hall, shops and cultural institutions, a bank & cafés, with its own little pedestrian area and a central square.
The cultural quarter is just a few minutes away from the motorway, 5 walking minutes from the train station and offers underground parking with 280 parking lots with direct access to the hotel.
Numerous excursion possibilities in the tourist region offer a wide variety: the ceremonial driving down of the cattle from the mountains (Alm-Abtrieb), the festival of Erl, cheese farm, sight glass cottage, fortress Kufstein, Swarovski Crystal World, and many more.
In winter the skiing area Söll is reachable within 15 minutes by ski bus for free. In summer one can cycle down the Inn or go hiking in the nature reserve Kaisertal.
In the arte Hotels art is not only part of the name, it’s also our way of living. Regularly art exhibitions, readings and events take place in specially designed public spaces in the hotel.
arte Hotels are designed as non-smoker hotels and are fully air-conditioned.
