Ideal ski area for beginners
Located at 1220 m altitude on a sunny mountain terrace Falera is an ideal ski destination for beginners. The piste n ° 53 Curnius-Falera was created especially for skiers. This piste is served by a 4-seater chairlift equipped with ski racks. From Curnius, experienced skiers can ride on the red piste down to Laax. From Curnius, there is also a chairlift up to the Crap Sogn Gion, from where you can reach the highest point of the Alpenarena via various connections, the Vorab glacier at 3018m and the other peaks of the ski area.
Falera also has one of the two toboggan runs in the Alpenarena. This downhill run connects the middle station of Curnius to the ski area. Goose bumps, speed and fun are guaranteed on this 3.5 km downhill run with beautiful curves. Once a week, this descent is lit up for sledding fun until 10pm. Take a break in the mountain restaurant Tegia Curnius right next to the mountain station of the lift. Here you can enjoy a good fondue, served with bread, potatoes, vegetables and pineapple.
Place of history and astronomy
In addition to winter sports, Falera is best known for its rich cultural and historical heritage. Built about 500 years ago, Remigiuskirche is the landmark of Falera and one of the most beautiful historic buildings in the Vorderrhein. On a pasture just below the church, at the foot of the wooded hill Mutta lies the famous Menhir field of Falera. More than 3,500 years ago, stone circles were built here that probably served the sun worship. Numerous drawings on the stele confirm a strong religious and astronomical significance of this place.
This astronomical tradition is still preserved and cultivated in Falera today. With clear skies and clean air, Falera's location is ideal for looking at the celestial bodies. In 2007, the observatory Mirasteilas was opened in the upper part of the village - the first of its kind in Graubünden. The observatory is equipped with the most modern instruments and tours are offered every Friday and Saturday. Take the opportunity to take a closer look at our universe and give your holidays in Falera a special touch.
