Many locals who like to take excursions in this region mistakenly call Telfer Wiesen the "Telfeser Wiesen". Telfer or Telfeser, it doesn’t really matter. All you need to know is that the Telfer Wiesen belong to the village of Telfes in the Stubai Valley, one of the most beautiful areas in Tirol for pleasant autumn walks or mountain bike rides with the whole family. Expansive, sparse larch forests in the mid-mountain range on the sunny side of the Stubai Valley please both the eye and the soul with subtle shades of yellow, orange and gold. One’s gaze is repeatedly drawn to the Stubai and Wipptal Valleys far below the scattered settlement, or up to one of three nearby mountains: the dome-shaped Patscherkofel to the south of Innsbruck, the craggy Serles and the mighty Habicht.
The circular trail leads along a more or less flat path from the carpark in Kapfers through the Telfer Wiesen. A particularly romantic and eco-friendly way to arrive is to travel on the Stubaitalbahn tram, which runs from Innsbruck to the Telfer Wiesen (stopping at Luimes, Telfes and Telfer Wiesen).
Landgut Thalerhof at the starting point of the walk impresses diners with great food made using local organic products. Dumpling lovers, as well as fans of traditional dishes such as Tirolean “Graukäse” cheese in vinegar and oil are well catered for at Alpengasthaus Stockerhof above Mutters/Kreith.
