Fulpmes

Fulpmerisch for beginners: Fulpmes in the Stubaital Valley is famous for its century-old tram line connecting the village to the regional capital Innsbruck as well as its residents' unusual dialect which often sounds a little like American English.

The residents of Fulpmes in the Stubaital Valley are famous throughout the region for their somewhat unusual dialect. If you listen closely then you can hear that, unlike most other German speakers, they roll the letter “r” like Americans do when speaking English. This makes words like “Fulpmerer Rennradlfahrer” (in English, “a road bike rider from Fulpmes”) sound very different from other parts of Tirol!

Visitors wishing to experience the local dialect at first hand should take a ride on the Stubaitalbahn, an electric tram known in the area simply as the “Stubaier”, and which has connected Fulpmes to the regional capital Innsbruck for more than 100 years. The idea of building such a connection was, at the time, quite revolutionary. Today the Stubaitalbahn remains a popular mode of transport, though the original carriages have long been replaced by modern versions with state-of-the-art technology.

Fulpmes’ best-known son is not a road bike rider but, instead, a ski jumper. Indeed, he is not just any ski jumper. Born and raised in Fulpmes, Gregor Schlierenzauer is a multiple Olympic and world champion and considered one of the best ski jumpers of all time.
