Telfes in Stubai valley was being populated as early as 1.700 B.C. Discoveries from the Early Bronze Age found not far away from this place in the field of “Gallhof“ led to that conclusion. Main reasons for the early population are likely to be the fertile grounds of the “Telfer Wiesen”.
The name “Telfes” is also an indication of that. The name comes from the Indo-Germanic “tellevo”, which means as much as “useful land”. Due to the location and the length of insolation, the grass grows especially well here.
Up to this day the “Telfer Wiesen” are used exclusively agriculturally. They belong to the most beautiful larch fields of Tyrol. The rich gentian blow in the spring is very impressive.
