This pretty village, which has successfully retained its rural character, is so enchanting, because of its sunny location on an inviting plateau above the Inntal Valley.
The picturesque and varied walks in the countryside around the Tux Alps are suitable for every level of fitness, making Tulfes an outdoor paradise that is much loved and appreciated throughout Tyrol. Ask any Tyrolean what they associate with Tulfes, they have a ready answer: the Glungezer. Tulfes' house mountain has become the mountain that symbolises Tyrol. But no wonder, as it is one of the most beautiful mountains in the country, boasting breathtaking views of the Karwendel range opposite or along the Inntal Valley.
One thing not be missed under any circumstances is "klumping" fun: Klumpers are a type of single runner toboggan – and unique to the Tulfes region. This wacky winter sport is promoted by the Tulfes Klumper Club and every week visitors to the area join in the fun and make daring downhill runs.
