Recent developments in experimental TeV gamma ray astronomy of Galactic sources are summarized, covering the Crab nebula as a standard candle, pulsars and pulsar nebulae, gamma ray emission by supernova remnants, and the newly discovered gamma-ray source at the Galactic centre. For an earlier review, see e.g. (1). A puzzle remains that some of the established southern TeV sources could not be confirmed in recent observations by the new H.E.S.S. instrument.
