Your vacation in Flirsch
Spring. Summer. Autumn. Winter.
The pretty little village of Flirsch, sitting at 1,157 meters, is embedded in the western high Alps in the Stanzertal between Landeck and St. Anton am Arlberg. Its name derives from the Rhaeto-Romanic word for flowers, and the area is still renowned to this day for its diverse range of flora. In addition to the 14th century parish church of St. Bartholomew, the Lourdes Chapel and the traditional carving shop are all well worth a visit. The noble municipal office in Flirsch was once the mansion of the Draxl industrialist family, and the square in front of it was dedicated to the slalom World and Olympic champion, Mario Matt, who was born in Flirsch.
