Perlen haben bei uns Tradition
Pearls are a tradition with us
As the gateway to the Inn Valley, the fortified town has always played an important role.
In the past it was fiercely contested, and both then and today it is situated at a place of economic importance.
Nobody gets past Kufstein.
This position has led Kufstein to gain the importance it has over the centuries.
The town has certainly done well in the rapid economic growth of the past years and decades. Trades, services, commerce and industry have all grown well, high-quality jobs are available and there is a high degree of innovation. The University of Applied Sciences is a training ground for the next generation of experts and innovators, and is doing its part to ensure positive development in the city.
The fact that two shopping centres have not been located on the periphery as they are in many other cities of a similar size, but are instead located in the centre, is an important stimulating factor for the downtown area.
