Rettenberg is noted for its glass production to be admired in many shops along its historic centre’s walkways. Kufstein, also known as “The Pearl of Tirol”, has the Kufstein Fortress which stands as a powerful symbol and it houses the largest open-air organ in the world, “Heldenorgel” literally meaning the “Heroes’ Organ”.
