PFUNDSER TSCHEY

One of the most beautiful high valleys in Tyrol!

The Pfundser Tschey is a high valley above Pfunds and runs from about 1,600m - 1,700m above sea level.

You just have to see the incomparable panorama with the many small hay barns. Owing to its scenic beauty, the high valley is one of the Tyrolean Oberland’s biggest treasures.

Spring, summer, autumn or winter - the wonderful high valley is worth a visit all year round - the scenic beauty harbours its special charm at all times. 

Tschey comes from the Rhaeto-Romanic meaning high valley

A year in the Pfundser Tschey

Spring

Nature awakens in spring and the green meadows are covered with thousands of purple and white crocuses.

Summer

A mountain summer from its most beautiful side - with a splendour of flowers in the Tschey. The diverse Alpine flora peaks in June to July, with the distribution of a large number of species of orchid being particularly appreciated by flower lovers. The meadows are mowed in August - there’s a lot going on in the meadows. The high valleysis the ideal starting point for an alpine hike in the direction of Platzer Alm and Gschnair Alm or for a hike to the local mountain of Pfunds den FrudigerIs it true that there’s an especially rare distribution of orchids here?

Autumn

The golden time of year - in September and October the golden autumn makes an appearance in the Tschey. The larch trees take on an autumnal tinge and leave the forest around the Tschey ablaze with colour.

Winter

A soft blanket of snow covers the huts and barns of the Tschey from December - winter makes an appearance. The cross-country ski trails and winter hiking routes are prepared - here, you can enjoy the quiet and escape the everyday stress in the valley.

Why are there so many barns here then?

How many are there? We haven’t counted, but there has to be a hundred or so such barns and kitchen huts.

Each barn in the Tschey belongs to a farmer - the meadows aren’t Alpine pastures, but rather are mowed by the different farmers. There are the so-called kitchen huts - these were and still are, as the name suggests, used for spending the night and cooking. The other hay barns, known locally as “Stoodl” or “Pilla” are used for the temporary storage of harvested hay.
