Serfaus, a village full of history

It all started in 1220

1427 metres above sea level, the little gem Serfaus lies on a sunny high plateau in the Tyrolean Oberland. First mentioned in 1220, the community has experienced a lot in the last 800 years. Some sources even say that Serfaus was already founded in the Bronze Age around 1500 BC.

Highest underground railway in the world

Narrow paths

In the Bronze Age, mule tracks were built to Serfaus. Paths were so narrow that only one person could walk on them. With the Romans also came the roads, and so the famous Via Claudia Augusta ran through Serfaus. Today the highest underground railway runs through Serfaus and ensures a traffic-calmed place. Serfaus is a place full of life.

A place full of life

Serfaus may be a small village, but it certainly doesn't get boring here. The cultural life in Serfaus is shaped above all by the numerous traditions of the region. The local associations regularly organise concerts, festivals, markets and many other events. The preservation of old customs and togetherness in the community is essential to the people of Serfaus. Therefore, the village centre is always a meeting place for young and old. Serfaus is also one of the oldest places of pilgrimage in Tyrol. You can discover special mementos of Serfaus's history and rare treasures in the Parish Museum or the Refugium Archaeology Museum.
