In Telfs the valley of the river Inn is wider than anywhere else in Tirol. And at both sides of the dominating mountain Hohe Munde are two Plateaus accomanying the valley above and below Telfs. Below (East) from Telfs it is the Saddle of Seefeld, a wide area between the mountain groups of the Wetterstein and Mieming range and the Karwendel. This is...more
Being in Telfs a must is to walk (or drive, the routes are separated) through pine forests up to the Gasthaus Strassberg (all the year round, in winter often excellent tobogganing down from Strassberg). A few minutes from Strassberg you have to leave your car anyway. Strassberg is a small but on weekends very popular Gasthaus in scenic surroundings...more

This is not a real restaurant tip, but I was impressed of these delicious smoked trouts. We eat clearly more fish in Karelia than people eat here in Tirol but I must say that the preparation is perfect. The place where the trouts are grown and smoked is in Oberpettnau, about 8 km east from Telfs. The freshly smoked trouts are best when they are...more
The restaurant is situated in Bairbach, a 200 meters above the valley on the road from Telfs to Mösern and Seefeld, and it is a very scenic location. Just to mention that two former German Bundeskanzlers (K.G. Kiesinger and Willy Brandt) had once their X-mas holidays only a few minutes walk from there (at different places, of course). The...more

After missing the Schleicherlaufen of 2000 and 2005 we (Globetrott, MEdelmann and me) met in my home for a rather "exclusive" (taking into account the number of participants) VT-member meeting January 29 - February 1, 2010. The most important topic of the meeting programme was to attend the "Schleicherlaufen 2010" with its central event on Sunday,...more
This event takes place every fifth year in the carnival (most recent was on 30 January 2005). The origin are probably pre-christian myths around the fight of darkness and light or winter and spring. A lot of various fantastically masked groups (more than 500 actors, no women, also the female parts are played by men) are playing this struggle on a...more
"My home is my castle" and therefore off the beaten path. But if you, my dear VT friends, are in the area just let me know it, I would like at least to meet you for coffee or wine here in case I am not travelling myself . If I have time I can show you around and help you with more or less valuable tips.more
Telfs is not known for famous downhill slopes but you find plenty of them in a distance of about 30 km around and Telfs can therefore serve as a quite economic place to sleep and to go every day to the different skiing areas in about half an hour or less by car. But what you find in top class are the excellently kept cross-country skiing tracks in...more
Skiing started in the Alps in late 19th century - without skilifts and funiculars, of course. But the more the Alps are exploited with all these means of transport the more people detect the charme of the "off-piste" skiing where you climb the tops on your own skis and can enjoy the virgin snow. You need on your skis a binding allowing to lift...more

Difficult to make it clear what is my most favourite thing about Telfs but come and see and you might understand it. If you are on my friends list and are around in the area or plan to visit it so just let me know, I would be happy to meet you and show you around. There have only four of my VT-friends visited me here so far (check oja's Innsbruck page or Anjutka'sTelfs page for that).
Fondest memory: What I really miss when being absent from here is the great opportunity just to walk a few minutes away from my home and to be in a great surroundings accessible for most of the Europeans only when they are on holiday. And the great various open air activities all the year round is the other thing I miss when being not here.
