Telfs is a market town in the district of Innsbruck-Land in the Austrian state of Tyrol located 27 kilometres (17 miles) west of Innsbruck. It is the third largest location of Tyrol and received its status in 1908. Telfs possesses an own district court. In the last years Telfs has frequently been increasing in the number of inhabitants but efforts of leveling up to a city have been without success until now.
