The village of Falzes was first mentioned in an official document with the name of "Phalanza" in 1050. Falzes provides the end of the unique high-alpine Fundres path, a 64 km long hiking path through the Fundres Mountains, past alpine lakes, high summits and secluded huts.

In Falzes you can admire the Sichelburg Castle, which now seems more like a tower with a facade decorated with small bay windows, and the parish church surrounded by century-old chestnut trees, which is dedicated to S. Cyriak.

Issengo, a hamlet of Falzes, is known for the swimming lake, a very popular excursion destination in summer. At Issengo Lake you can admire many protected plants and animals.

Even though Molini is a very small place, the village can offer two very special sights: The Schöneck Castle, which dates from the early Middle Ages, and is more than likely the place of birth of troubadour Oswald von Wolkenstein, and a spruce tree in the shape of a pillar, which is one of only few single spruce trees in Europe, Picea excelsa.
