The holiday resort Flaurling is located in a position that is sheltered from the wind in the Inn Valley, between Telfs and Zirl. The coat of arms of the municipality shows a giant that cleaves a tree trunk: This motif derives from the emblem of the family of the humanist Sigismund Ris (1431-1532), who was priest of Flaurling for several decades. He left some precious cultural relics to the village.
The village is a great starting point for hikes and MTB tours. The Flaurlinger Alm is for example a popular hiking destination and at the same time starting point for further mountain tours. From the village centre, a trail takes you to the Kohlerkapelle chapel, and then across the Flaurling Valley further on to the Flaurling Mountain Hut at 1,614 m a.s.l. The tour takes about three hours, and can also be done by moutain bike. In summer, the hut offers refreshments after the effort.
Still several stunning farms are preserved in their original state in Flaurling. Another witness over many centuries is the Ris Building, which originally was a hunting castle. Later on it was handed over to the chaplain Sigmund Ris, and consequently transformed into a lordy parish house. Untypical, however, is the St. Margaret the Virgin Parish Church, which in 1326 was only a little chapel. It is aligned towards east - usually, the Tyrolean churches are oriented towards west.
