Pfafflar is a small village in the Bschlabertal Valley, a quiet side valley branching off the Lechtal Valley.
The municipality is made up of the settlements Bschlabs, Boden and Pfafflar (only inhabited in summer) at 1,314 metres. This charming alpine village attracts many visitors throughout the warm summer months. It served as a hunting area for Emperor Maximilain I around 1500, when there was already a small permanent settlement on this site home to immigrants from the Engadin area of Switzerland. Towards the end of the 19th century the residents and local farmers moved from Pfafflar to Boden, 250 metres further down, and only used Pfafflar between late spring and early autumn. Today the mighty Hahntennjoch mountain with its road popular with motorbike riders in summer marks the edge of this municipality.
