FaleraSwitzerland

This quaint and unassuming car-free town is one of three neighboring ski areas collectively known as the Weisse Arena.

Falera, together with the nearby towns of Flims and Laax, offers more than 146 miles (235 kilometers) of slopes suitable for skiers of all levels. While skiing, hiking and other outdoor activities are the main draw, Falera’s pretty town is also worth exploring. Visit its interesting historic attractions.

Falera, Flims and Laax encompass one of Switzerland’s largest winter sports regions. Stay in Falera, the smallest of the three villages, for an intimate and secluded ski experience, an ideal choice for laid-back family vacations. Falera exudes the old-style charm of a traditional mountain village.

Ride the quad chairlift up to Curnius, the site of a popular restaurant and the halfway point on the way to the summit of Crap Masegn. Take a break at the restaurant and dine on a traditional dish like salsiz (a hard sausage) or Graubünden (barley soup). From the summit of Crap Masegn, ski the easy valley run leading back down into Falera.

Snowboarders can practice on the monster pipes, rails and kickerlines on Crap Sogn Gion. During the glacier season, enjoy the two halfpipes and a snow park at an even higher elevation on the Vorab Glacier.

Notice the huge prehistoric menhirs leading up the hill to the site of St. Remigius Church. These intriguing stones date back to the village’s first settlement in 1500 B.C. The Romanesque church on the hilltop features a beautiful 17th-century fresco depicting the Last Supper. Attend a chamber music concert here in the summer and walk through the cemetery to admire the lovely views over the Vorderrhein Valley.

See other menhirs as well as megaliths at Parc La Mutta, Switzerland's most important megalithic site. It dates back to the Middle Bronze Age. Take a self-guided tour of the 34 standing stones or, in summer, sign up for a guided tour.

To get to Falera, take the daily shuttle service operating between both Friedrichshafen and Zurich airports and the White Arena. Falera is located 2 miles (3 kilometers) away from Laax. The local lift pass gives you access to all the Flims-Laax-Falera ski resorts, which are linked by lifts.
