This is the village square in Pfaffenhofen, the southern mate of Telfs in the two towns served by the Telfs-Pfaffenhofen train station on the Inn Valley's main east-west rail line. The guesthouse on the left sports typical Tyrolean flowers on its balconies, as does the house across the square on the right. |
In front of that house across the square is a plain fountain with constant flowing water supplied by an artesian well. The water has come down from the surrounding mountains in layers of sand and gravel that extend from the mountains to the Inn. The fountains get considerable use, especially in the summer: by the time I got across the square, I had to wait my turn to refill my water-bottle on a hot day.
