Albinen is classified by ISOS (Federal Inventory of Swiss Heritage Sites) as a site of national importance. Both the situation and the spatial and architectural/historical qualities of the site are classified as being very high.
The compact scattered village captivates with its impressive situation on a steep slope high over the Dala gorge. It appears to be glued to the slope and thus differs from most of the mountain villages in the region that lies on a sloping terrace. The wooden houses are staggered up the slope in a typical regional mixture of residential and utility buildings.
