The small mountain village of Morissen is located in the Val Lumnezia at 1.350 m above sea level on the southern slope of the Péz Mundauns.

The village is first mentioned as Mureinsene in a claim of the episcopal estates of Chur in the 12th century. The name then appears in numerous versions, for example: Mureizen, Muraizen, Moreissens and Mureiscen. The current spelling of Murissen and Morissen has been in use since 1600. The name may have come from Moritz or Murezi (the owner of the valley).

Around 1400, the seven farms of Surcuolm belonged to the Morissen neighbourhood, namely Marschaga, Permaniga, Furzaniga, Lutterenga, Puntenga, Dulenga and the Pfifferscher Hof.

They controlled the passage of the transit route from Cadi and Obersaxen via Surcuolm – Sogn Carli/Morissen and on via Vella - Cuolm Val - Splügen/S. Bernardino to Lombardy.

In 1630. the separation took place due to dispute and ongoing conflict concerning the use of forest and pasture around the Mundaun. Despite the separation, this dispute lasted until 1895.

Morissen is an ideal starting point for winter hikes. A route leads you to S. Carli and the "Bündner Rigi" there you can enjoy a beautiful view as far as Chur.

In good snow conditions, there is a slope coming down from the ski region Obersaxen Mundaun Val Lumnezia to Morissen.
