Teleparallel gravity is one widely studied framework to describe gravity in terms of tetrads and torsion on spacetime instead of a metric and curvature. It is particularly useful to construct extensions and modifications of general relativity, since it avoids the Lovelock theorem. Moreover, teleparallel gravity nicely fits into the framework of Poincare gauge theory, which aims for treating gravity as the other fundamental forces in physics, as a gauge theory. In this talk I will give a brief introduction to teleparallel gravity and discuss ordinary and scalarised black hole solutions in so called f(T)-gravity. The later being the teleparallel analogue of f(R)-gravity. It turns out that the theory posses interesting generalisations of Schwarzschild geometry as solutions as well as scalarized black hole solutions.
