We made a short visit to this site while in Kufstein. It was walking distance to town. They have several things going on that we didn’t have time to do, but I think it’s worth checking in to.

There is an audio tour that you can download and do your own guided tour. It was a bit long in places for me, but then you can just skip to the next bit. I can't remember if they did tours led by a human guide or not. Sorry.
