The symbolic local landmark is the Piccard Memorial (Monument Auguste Picard) erected in 1989. The monument is dedicated to a significant event that took place on May 27, 1931.

One of the most interesting religious sites in the region can be found in the immediate vicinity of Sölden, in the village of Obergurgl . This is the Church of St. John Nepomuk dating back to 1726 that has remained the highest parish church in Europe after almost 200 years. It has managed to preserve both its original appearance and a lot of priceless religious artifacts.
A religious attraction of a later period is a church located on Mount Rotkegl. As shown in a memorial tablet installed next to the church, it was built in 1956 by Hans Fender. He fulfilled this vow in this way and thanked the higher forces for helping him to return safely to the homeland. Copyright
