The so-called “Klumperspass” with a single-blade sledge is a unique winter experience, which is closely linked to Tulfes.
Altitude: 923 m a.s.l.
The holiday resort Tulfes is located at a low mountain range terrace at the foot of the 2,677 m high Glungezer mountain. The municipal area is made up of the hamlets Tulfes, Tulferberg, Gasteig and Volderwald, and extends up to the head of the Voldertal valley to the almost 2,500 m high Naviser Jöchl pass. The term Tulfes derives from the Latin term "tellevo" which means "cultivable soil".
First-choice destination in every season of the year is the local mountain of Tulfes, Mt. Glungezer. It offers wonderful possibilities for hiking, mountain biking and mountaineering. The Glungezer Cable Car takes you comfortably up to 2,000 m a.s.l. where the Tulfein Mountain Hut is located. The Stone Pine Path starts nearby and leads you through the largest stone pine forest of the Alps to Mt. Patscherkofel high above Innsbruck. By the way: It is proven, that you sleep better in stone pine tree beds, as this wood lowers your heart rate, which basically contributes to a healthy sleep.
For families there are two special places on the mountain: the Swiss Pine Lake and the Marble Forest. The latter is an adventure land between the trees, which features the biggest wooden ball run facility in the world. In winter, Mt. Glungezer transforms into a small but mighty skiing area with 23 km of ski slopes, a 3 km long panorama toboggan run and two beautiful winter walking paths. Equally popular are ski tours across the calm and mighty winter landscape: The silence, the snow and the mighty Tyrolean mountain world contribute to your relaxation and recuperation.
