Downtown refers to the historical core of a city, but we prefer to speak of Kufstein's "Altstadt" with its historic Römerhofgasse. The charming ambiance of this street, originally known as the Rennhofgasse and Binderhofgasse, is accentuated by houses decorated by crenellations. You can also marvel at works of art on painted facades and as well as toasts and sayings painted on the houses.
Between the two gates of the former city fortifications, small shops, boutiques, and a memorial in memory of Karl Ganzer, the composer of the world-famous "Kufstein Lied" song, line the 100-meter long street. Interspersed among these shops are traditional houses such as the "Auracher Löchl", which connects the rows of houses lining both sides of the street with its "bridge", and the former "Batzenhäusl". As a member of one of the 16 "small historic cities" in Austria, Kufstein boasts the motto "historic flair and city life". At the end of this narrow street is the Inn promenade and Unterer Stadtplatz making the Römerhofgasse in the historic district of Kufstein the ideal place to take a stroll.
