Kuchl is situated at an elevation of 468 m on the river Salzach in the Tennengau region (district Hallein).
The Georgenberg (528 m) near Kuchl was already inhabited in the Stone Age.
Here was the location of the late Roman settlement Cucullis (5th century AD) . Cucullis was mentioned in the Vita Severini (AD 903)
and is marked on the Tabula Peutingeriana, an 11th or 12th century copy of a Roman map last edited in the 5th century showing the complete
road system of the world known at that time.
