Bschlabs, Boden and the summer settlement of Pfafflar make up the municipality of Pfafflar with 130 inhabitants. From the village of Elmen a well-developed panorama road, which is also accessible in the winter, leads to Bschlabs, Boden and in the summer across the Hahntennjoch to Imst.
Bschlabs lies on the sunny slope of the Bschlabertal valley. There the Maria Schnee pilgrimage church, which is located in the middle of the village and surrounded by old farm houses, welcomes you. Then comes the little village of Boden. The village lies picturesquely at the end of the Bschlabertal valley and is a central starting point for numerous hiking and mountaineering tours. The renovated Hl. Josef village church with one of the oldest organs of the area is also worthwhile..
Besides of the road, there are also two recommendable hiking trails connecting the villages Bschlabs and Boden: the “Weg der Stille” (tranquillity trail) from Bschlabs to Boden and from Boden to Bschlabs the “Bschlaber Höhenweg” (high-altitude trail).
On the fantastic Hahntennjoch panorama road (attention: closed during the winter) you get to the summer settlement of Pfafflar. Pfafflar is one of the oldest high-altitude settlements of Tirol. This lovely mountain villages features old wooden houses, some of which date as far back as the 13th century. On this pass road you can cross the newest alpine pass of Europe, the Hahntennjoch (1,903m) and continue past Maldonalm pasture to Imst.
